Excellant variety of paintings displayed by period. The facility was free with special exhibits having a nominal charge. The grounds and walking trails were excellant.

Crystal Bridges is a beautiful museum set within a forest on the edge of Bentonville. the collection in the museum is outstanding and the Chihuly exhibit was beautiful. It is also worth it to visit the Frank Lloyd Wright house.

Yes. I think there are even poo bags available at least on the trails near the museum. I cannot remember if I saw those further out along the greenway or not.
