Crystal Bridges is one of the top art museums in America, and it is located in Bentonville, AR. Who said Arkansas does not have a great gallery?
Who believed something this nice would land in Arkansas? Alice Walton did! She is the daughter of Sam Walton. The Crystal Bridges Museum holds over 400 pieces of American art, but the art is not the only show stopper. The building is beautiful. People are coming from all over the world to see both the art, this incredible building, and it is FREE. General admission to Crystal Bridges is sponsored by Walmart. There is no cost to view the Museum’s permanent collection, which is year-round. I hope you get an idea of just how unique Crystal Bridges Art Museum is by watching the above video.
Not only does Crystal Bridges have fantastic art and facility, but they have an excellent restaurant called Eleven. Eleven is known for Modern American Comfort Food. I love that they get fresh ingredients from Bentonville Farmers’ Market and other food artisans in Northwest Arkansas.
