A Journey to Crystal Bridges

Visit Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art—the first major institution in fifty years dedicated to the history of American art, housed in one of the most spectacular museum structures in the U.S. if not the world, designed by world-renowned architect, Moshe Safdie.

The brainchild of Walmart heiress Alice Walton, Crystal Bridges, has, since its founding, become a major pilgrimage site for art enthusiasts and the home to a growing number of American art masterpieces. In February 2020, the museum opened an entirely new satellite building: The Momentary, a 63,000 square foot space dedicated to contemporary art.

Our Crystal Bridges Jaunt is priced at $4,800 per person and includes all transportation, lodging, and meals during your trip. Our trips do not include flights to or from your destination.
