Art and nature come together at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art for an experience like none other.

The permanent collection of art spans five centuries of American masterworks ranging from the Colonial era to the current day. Included within the collection are iconic images such as Asher B. Durand’s Kindred Spirits, Norman Rockwell’s Rosie the Riveter, and Andy Warhol’s Coca-Cola [3] as well as major works by modern and contemporary American artists, including Georgia O’Keeffe, and John Baldessari. The permanent collection, which continues to grow through a strategic acquisition plan, is on view year-round along with temporary exhibitions throughout the year. Plus, sculpture and walking trails link the museum’s 120-acre park to downtown Bentonville.

Give yourself a couple of days to explore the outstanding artworks and architecture as well as the trails and grounds surrounding it all.
