Excellent spot to visit!

We spent about 1.5 hours at Crystal Bridges and enjoyed every minute and it is FREE. The museum is wonderful and the surrounding area is very pretty.

This was our first visit to Crystal Bridges. This is perhaps the best (only?) good thing that Wal-mart has given to the world. There are many well-known figures represented herein, such as Eakins, Cassatt, Sargent, Weber, Oldenberg, Rockwell, and Curry, as well as lesser-known artists. The building is interesting, and beautifully located in a ravine that was gorgeous on the... More

Crystal Bridges is simply a national treasure (free!). When we come to this area, we always pay a return visit. This trip we toured the Frank Lloyd Wright House, which is majestically situated with nature, just like FLW would have done (free, but be sure to reserve tixs online!). We also viewed the Art of American Dance special exhibit (fee),... More

FAN-TAS-TIC The building itself and grounds are worth the visit even omitting the art works inside. And the entry fee is zero.

A inexpensive place to spend some time. It changed my opinion of fine art. The architecture was really cool.

This is a great time of year, fall to stroll around the grounds of Crystal Bridges. We were able to reserve a couple of tickets to the Frank Lloyd Wright House relocated from NJ to Arkansas. The self guided tour takes 12 minutes and worth the stop.

Just back from our trip and needed to share this attraction with everyone. A brilliant art gallery set in the middle of beautiful trails with pieces of art cropping up on your walks. Loved everything about it and it's a little treasure on the doorstep of the town.

We ended up spending more time in Crystal Bridges then we had planned. The museum itself is stunning. The artwork is varied and interesting. The galleries are large and not crowded. There is a free audio tour you can pick up at the desk also. This was not great for me. There were many pieces I would have liked more... More
