Choose Your Own Adventure Summer 2019 Itinerary

Adult, Few Hours

11 am-12 pm: Discover 300 years of American art and how artists have portrayed nature over time in Nature’s Nation, located in the Temporary Exhibition Gallery. 

12-1 pm: Grab lunch at Eleven or snacks from the Coffee Bar.

1-3 pm: Explore the galleries and drop in on a gallery conversation or tour (check the calendar for dates and times). Make your way to the North Exhibition Gallery and take the elevator to the North Forest to experience Color Field, our first outdoor sculpture exhibition.

3-5 pm: Walk up the Art Trail toward downtown Bentonville to see more exciting sculptures, and enjoy a drink at 21c Museum Hotel.

Sunset: Head to Skyspace: The Way of Color (located on the Art Trail, past the South Lawn) at sunset to watch a light and color show like you’ve never seen, and then make your way back to the museum entrance to sit under Buckyball to witness another magical light show.


If it’s Saturday: Come back at 7 pm for the Forest Concert Series + see Color Field at night! Food and drinks will be available at the food truck.


Didn’t get to see Nature’s Nation or Color Field? Don’t worry! If you purchased an exhibition ticket, you can come back within one month of the purchase date and see the exhibition you missed, free of charge.

Check our calendar to incorporate events into your itinerary, depending on the day you visit!
