It has a lot of varied and interesting artwork. There is even a Van Gogh. There are two displays that are totally a must see. One is an oversized chest and head, a selfie if you will. Unbelievably life-like, there is also another one of an old man sitting on a bench. Same thing, totally and unbelievably realistic, Almost kind... More

This is a lovely setting for this museum. Large collection of American art was artfully displayed. Highlight was the Frank Lloyd Wright house on the grounds-don't miss it. The walking trails were very nice...I'm sure they are really pretty in the spring when things are blooming.

What a great place! There is a lot to see and do at the museum. It's amazing that they didn't charge an entry fee when we visited.

If you think you'll see everything in a couple of hours think again. There is so much to see you'd better plan on taking two days.

High quality American art displayed in an exceptional modern building in a natural setting. The works displayed tell the story of the evolution of art in the United States. Works are of a high standard and are displayed in excellent condition. Some pieces are truly exceptional. And the building is also exceptional - a series of exhibition spaces linked by... More

We visited Bentonville for the museum. Your daddy is rich and you get to buy a bunch of great art, and then you build a modern, groovy, thoughtful space that houses interesting, interactive exhibits with an example of every SINGLE American artist with great food and lovely vistas! Boo Yah! With a drive within 500 miles. Fantastic!

What a wonderful museum. The building is a work of art, but then the whole building is filled with amazing art works. I would highly recommend several days wandering through. Also, be sure to book a tour to see the Frank Lloyd Wright house on campus. The restaurant there is also fabulous--Eleven. Great High South cuisine. Kudos to Alice Walton.... More
