Crystal Bridges

2016 Out West, Arkansas, Road Trip

Today we had the pleasure of visiting Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, an unexpected treat in Bentonville, Arkansas. With Sharon and Mike we wandered through galleries marveling at the wonderful pieces of American art gathered here. At one point we were able to briefly join a tour of the museum conducted by Alice Walton herself. We lunched in the lovely restaurant that actually bridges Crystal Springs Creek. We were unable to get tickets to tour the Frank Lloyd Wright house on the property but did get to walk up to and part way around it. We completed our visit with a return to the overflow parking lot via the Tulip Tree Trail. We didn’t get to visit all the galleries, of course we wanted to save some for next visit. Hopefully we’ll chose a time with fewer visitors than at craft fair weekend!
