This is a great museum. You can visit the library to take a break if you get tired of walking/standing.

A first class art gallery in a charming setting. Truly a must see if you are in the area. It was free and afforded me the opportunity to see world class works of art in person.

Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art is by far the best art museum I have ever visited. It has traveling exhibits that you can see for a very cheap price. The rest of the museum is completely free. There is at least one original Van Gogh painting, and there are two paintings from the Rosie the Riveter collection. whether your... More

The Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art is on par, and even surpasses, many of the fine arts institutions in our largest cities. The focus here is American artworks from the collection of Alice Walton. Ms. Walton's collection does not disappoint. From the earliest stages of our country through the 21st Century the chronologically arranged galleries are full to lovers... More

No matter what age you are you can find something you will enjoy here. The cost for the main entry is free and you only pay for the special exhibits. I have been several times and always fine something I didn't know from before. The beauty of the building itself is amazing. There is an outdoor trail that can add... More

I am definitely not a connoisseur of fine art, I couldn't even spell it without looking it up, but I do like to be a well-rounded individual. I've visited the Albrecht-Kemper in St. Joseph, MO and the Nelson-Atkins in Kansas City, MO. I would probably guess this museum is somewhere in between those two for size. To me, there should...

Bentonville may be a small town of 40,000 but Crystal Bridges Museum rivals the great museums of the world. Alice Walton had a vision to share American art and create a home for it that has become a destination place since it opened 11/11/11. The architecture is stunning and unique with acres of wooded areas and lush landscapes. A Frank... More

The museum was so beautiful. It's a high class museum haha. I went there on Thursday and it's free not including the dance. There were a lots of activities for little kids such as Zumba, and making beads. The activities are different everyday. It's fun. The pictures, sculptures, houses, paintings were really cool. There were many people at lunch time,... More
