When Sam Walton opened his 5&10 on the Bentonville town square in 1950, he had no idea he'd planted the seeds for what would become the global leader in retail, saving millions of people money so they could live better. Today, that humble little dime store is the location of The Walmart Museum. A family-friendly experience in 3 parts, the Museum features a world-class exhibit gallery, Walton's 5&10, and The Spark Cafe. Monday - Thursday: 8:00 a.M. - 9:00 P.M. Friday - Saturday: 8:00a.M. - 10:00P.M. Sunday: 12:00 p.M. - 9:00 P.M.

We very much enjoyed the manner in which they tell the story of Sam Walton and his development of Walmart. Emphasis is made of the "people of Walmart" and the spirit in which this built this American, now worldwide institution.

Free exhibit dedicated to Sam Walton and his life's work. Makes sense to see it in the company town! All very positive. Connected to an old time soda fountain.

Hi Nancy C! We do not offer any bus shuttles. However, Bentonville does offer plenty of free parking around the square. There are a few parking lots, versus street parking, where a camper would fit.
