Arts & Culture
While we want your business expansion or relocation decision to be sound, we want you to know that the community culture, amenities and livability of Bentonville are also making noise. The location of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art has transformed the landscape of our city with a magnitude as great as the art produced by some of our nation’s most iconic artists. Not only are residents and visitors able to explore the grounds surrounding Crystal Bridges in order to fully realize the architectural significance of the museum, but patrons are also able to take advantage of the many educational opportunities available at the museum.
With a resurgence of community pride and energy, Bentonville’s many other attractions include the Scott Family Amazeum, the Walmart Museum, 21c Museum Hotel, the Peel Mansion & Heritage Gardens, the Museum of Native American History, the Crystal Bridges Trail and the Compton Gardens and Conference Center.
Our exceptional local food and restaurant atmosphere as well as local and regional entertainment and sporting events will keep your employees, visitors, customers and friends as active as they choose. With many restaurants embodying the farm to table movement, Bentonville has an active food truck scene that draws the community together around the Square.
