The Academic Traveler presents Museums West, a regional excursion to explore museums and other repositories of culture in the region. First, we head west through the Mississippi Delta and Little Rock, finally arriving at the recently opened Crystal Bridges Museum in Bentonville, Arkansas. Praised in the New Yorker , The New York Times , and The Washington Post, this is "the most-talked-about new museum in the United States in a generation." On the return, travelers will stop in Memphis to visit two more cultural sites before returning to Oxford.
