Northwest Arkansas Tourism
Many visitors to Northwest Arkansas focus on attractions in Bentonville (such as Crystal Bridges or the Walmart Museum) or the college town of Fayetteville. But don't ignore some of the gems in the smaller towns in the region. There's lots of history in this area.
Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art: Don't let Bentonville's small town charm fool you. Within the city's borders is a world-class American Art Museum. Crystal Bridges offers an extensive selection of American Art, along with rotating exhibits and educational programs. Admission to the main galleries is always free; there is a charge for special exhibits and programs.
The Walmart Museum: Located directly on Bentonville's town square, the Walmart Museum offers an inside look at how one of the world's largest retailers got its start. Visitors can see photographs and artifacts from Walmart's early days, including a replica of Sam Walton's office. Attached to the museum is a "general store" that sells souvenirs and old-time candies, as well as a soda fountain. Admission is free. After a visit, tourists and locals alike can explore the downtown area, which is full of interesting boutiques, art galleries, restaurants, and bars.
Botanical Garden of the Ozarks: Visitors to Fayetteville will want to check out the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks. This is actually 12 different gardens, an arboretum, and a butterfly house. Garden staff are committed to promoting horticulture and conservation, and regularly offer classes and workshops for both adults and kids.
Daisy Airgun Museum: Visitors to the Daisy Airgun Museum in Rogers can learn about the history of the Daisy Airgun by viewing old models, as well as marketing materials and other ephemera.
Arkansas Country Doctor Museum: Located in the town of Lincoln, this unique museum preserves the history of rural healthcare.
