Over Martin Luther King Day, we took a mini trip to Bentonville, Arkansas. Three hours south of us, Bentonville is known because it is the birthplace of Walmart. There is a Walmart Museum, an art museum, and a hands-on science museum, all of which we visited. We went to the museum when we first arrived in town, and we all really enjoyed it and want to go back! There is an outdoor art trail which we walked on a bit, but would be best to visit in warmer weather. Best of all, it is free to visit!
We headed inside first, with more outdoor exploration later!
One of those weird pieces of art you find in modern museums – a wood floor covered with green candy.
We spent some time with the candy, and then moved on! I was intrigued by these pieces, which stood in the middle of the exhibit.
I loved this Big Red Lens (that’s the title!) and had to take photos of it from various angles.
At this point, we went outside for a bit.
This is the Fly’s Eye Dome.
We walked on the trail and found a geocache (not pictured).
The area would be very nice in warmer weather!
I was so excited to see this Love! It’s by the same artist as the sculpture in Philadelphia.
This is Frank Lloyd Wright’s Bachman-Wilson House. No photos are allowed inside, but we took an audio tour!
Back inside, I loved this rainbow fiber installment which Gabbie said looked like unicorn hair!
The building itself is very cool looking.
Lest you think I took photos of every piece of art, two of the galleries were not even open! I think you can understand why I want to go back to Crystal Bridges again!
