The Walmart Visitor Center displays a great story of Sam Walton and his journey of becoming a rich man with a lot of heart!
The center was very interesting. I had been curious about the life and career of Sam Walton and this center has lots of information about him as he built his company from just one little store. Amazing how he built it into such a huge company. Lots of details about his life and his mind for business. A lot can... More
When Sam Walton died his office was photographed for the details. The office in the museum is as it was photographed. Take the time to note the books on the bookshelves and on the desk.

It's interesting to see how one man with a good idea can change so many lives. Walton's principles for business are valuable for anyone to study and live by. I especially liked seeing how WalMart is able to respond to disaster situations.

Also, the bathroom wall paper is awesome. If you remember the old walmart advertisements you will find it interesting. At the end is a nice coffee shop with... More
If you see nothing else in the exhibit see Sam Walton's office. His office is replicated to the exact specifications at time of his death. It is a great step back in time.
Having shopped in Walmart since about 1960 and having read Sam's book, I had seen all I needed to see in about 20 minutes. The tour starts with a video, and then you stroll through several rooms of Walmart artifacts, but it was pretty small and lacking in present day activities and future plans.
