    A beautiful museum inside and out. The selection of American art ranges from colonial to pop art. If you're an outdoors type, on warm days the trails are wonderful. There's artwork outside as well.

    Great food and art. Huge park and recreation area next door. Fine dining with a huge wine list. Great ambiance, whether it's dinner with friends, for business or date night you can't go wrong.

    I love all the trails around the museum! I walk them early morning on Saturday and Sunday's pretty early by myself and always feel safe and get a great workout! Bikers can be a little crazy though!!

    My wife and I liked so much we became Members of the Museum. The best way for me to describe Crystal Bridges is to tell you to visit their website at www.crystalbridges.org. Wonderful place - wow!

    An oasis of amazing art that will leave you saying, "Where am I?" Check out the casual Jeff Koons one-and-a-half ton metallic heart in the restaurant area.

    Tell everyone your know: It's totally worth a trip to NE Arkansas. There is beautiful art for sure, but the real art is the buildings and campus. Fall and Spring are delightful.

    If you do one thing in Bentonville, you should visit Crystal Bridges. Amazing American art museum, including a Frank Lloyd Wright house....recommend going around dusk if possible.

    This place is fantastic. The wall full of Hudson River School paintings is a highlight, and the photo-realistic paintings and sculpture are amazing.

    If you plan on downloading the CBMuseum app to follow along as you go, make sure you download the sections of info within the app beforehand while your phone still has reception! You lose it inside!

    The collection is parallel to that of the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art but, the experience through the architecture is amazing.

    The art is awesome and tells the story of American history, it also shows the politics and economics of the U.S.
