One Of The Best Museum Restaurants In The World Is Hiding Here In Arkansas

Arkansas has one place that’s fairly likely to surprise out-of-state visitors. After all, who expects a small, mostly rural southern state to have a first class museum of American art? Add to that unlikelihood that Crystal Bridges is totally free to visit, and the whole thing seems really surprising. There’s something hiding at Crystal Bridges, though, that’s gathering world renown, and it isn’t a painting or a sculpture. It’s a restaurant—and one that outranked museums in New York City and Copenhagen on this list of best museum cafes in the world.

Crystal Bridges is located at 600 Museum Way in Bentonville.
