Crystal Bridges

It's been a unique experience to see the impact of Crystal Bridges Museum opening up in our home town, Bentonville, Arkansas. It's an architectual beauty filled with American art and full of historical pieces. Our town now has tourist signs and new developments going up to support this attraction which has art lovers from around the world coming to gander at the collection it houses.

Our family made our first visit last weekend, I thought perhaps some of the traffic would have died down since it opening in November but it was a lively place full of patrons, young & old. The outside was as beautiful as the masterpieces on the inside - trails, waters & sculptures surround the museum.

Art time for the little ones in the hands on area.

My favorite piece of art...they also had this MIND-BLOWING piece I didn't get a picture of made entirely of thread bobbins creating the Last Supper. WOW!

The little kiddos seemed to like the modern 3-D art pieces. Doesn't this guy look real?
My husband could read every plaque on the wall!

Overall our visit to the museum was eye opening and I'm already looking forward to hiking around the trails and really taking in all that the museum has to offer. If you are in the NWA area you need to go visit - a cultural experience & it's FREE too so it makes for a great day outing with the family.
