Located in the first established county in Arkansas, Bentonville is home to a number of historic sites and experiences. Walmart’s beginnings are traced back to Arkansas and can be discovered at The Walmart Museum. See exhibits highlighting founder Sam Walton all the way through the 21st century. For groups larger than four, call the museum to inquire about reservations.

Temporarily closed due to COVID-19, the Museum of Native American History houses over 10,000 Native American artifacts and features exhibits highlighting 12,000 years of history.

Bentonville is riddled with tales of the Spanish conquistadors — who legend says left treasure in a local Ozark cave. Groups can tour Old Spanish Treasure Cave and learn about the legend as well as marvel at a geographical wonder.
