No matter the time of year Bentonville always has destinations worth exploring. Let us help put together the perfect itinerary for your group of explorers!
Start your day with a trip to the highly anticipated Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art that opened in November 2011. The museum's permanent collection spans five centuries of American masterworks ranging from the Colonial era to current day. Included within the collection are iconic images such as Asher B. Durand's Kindred Spirits, Rosie the Riveter by Norman Rockwell, and Andy Warhol's Dolly Parton, each reflecting a distinct moment in American artistic evolution. With over 120 acres the museum park connects to downtown Bentonville where after exploring the museum's galleries, you can dine in one of our many restaurants or grab a treat from The Spark Cafe attached to the Walmart Museum. While downtown, you will not want to miss the Walmart Museum which includes interactive, hands-on displays and unique exhibits detailing the history of Walmart and the Walton family. After the downtown experience, venture to the west part of Bentonville to discover the Museum of Native American History. Touted as having one of the most comprehensive collections of Native American artifacts, this museum is a must see!
