If you are near NW Arkansas, this is well worth a visit. The architectural design is as impressive as the exhibits which cover the gamut of artistic style from traditional to contemporary. General admission is FREE although special exhibits require a paid ticket. The day...More

Plan on plenty of time for a thorough visit, two to three hours. I spent most of the day there. The collection of American Art is comprehensive and high quality. The building is wonderful. Staff is helpful, knowledgeable, and close by without hovering. All this...More

From the beginning with the spider sculpture, to the restaurant "Eleven" to the architecture, to all the wonderful paintings, to the Bachman-Wilson house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, to the marvelous grounds, this is a wonderful museum.

I'm not really an art fan but was staying in town for a week and entry is free so thought I'd take a look. Very impressive buildings, almost an art work in itself. Loads of staff available to ask information and I was given a...More

You do not have to purchase tickets in advance but it helps if there is a line. If I remember correctly, the price was 20 dollars and some change.

You do not need advance tickets. They are available daily. The indoor exhibit has already left, but his out door collection is still in place.
