I must agree with the 2700 other TA reviewers that rate Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art "Excellent". It is truly a place to visit whether you are in NW Arkansas or you are purposely making this museum your destination. First, it is completely free to visit. Secondly, it contains $300,000,000 of American art thus one will likely find something... More

It's no exaggeration to say that Crystal Bridges is THE single thing you MUST do if you visit Bentonville. The main collection is amazing, but Eleven (the restaurant) is also excellent and if the weather is cooperative, spend some time in the grounds! Finding interesting pieces spread throughout the grounds is one of the great treats of this place!

Great collection of art. Free to public except for special featured collections. Spend a whole day there. There is art inside the buildings and outside in the gardens. There is a dining area for purchasing and eating food so that you don't have to leave and spend the whole day. Sign up with their online website for reservations and tickets... More

This museum is a definite sight to see and FREE!! It would be wonderful to live in the area and be able to enjoy the walking paths and outdoor architecture. The main museum is set up in a square and all connected. It has a great collection of art and architecture. I was most impressed with Border Cantos the exhibit... More

Good art collection (plenty of the classics) in a magnificent architectural setting, nestled in the Ozarks. From Whistler and Wyeth to Maya Lin and Georgia O'Keefe, with a little Magritte and Basquiat thrown it, the human creative spirit is on view and accessible. Every now and the, stop and admire the building, too.

This museum is only five years old, but has the character of one much older than that. The Frank Lloyd Wright house with the audio tour is a great add-on too. The interesting architecture of the museum combined with that of the house, make for a special additional element to the visit.
