Things to do in Irving
Don’t miss the Mustangs of Las Colinas, the largest equine statue in the world. A realistic bronze sculpture of nine mustangs galloping across a granite stream serves as the centrepiece of Williams Square.
Once you’re done viewing the sculpture, head inside to the Mustangs of Las Colinas Museum. You can learn about African wildlife artist Robert Glen and his vision for the eight-year project, then view a short film that brings the story to life.
Visit the National Scouting Museum to learn about one of the longest standing traditions in the United States. Browse the artefacts relating to the history of the Boy Scouts, explore the paintings by Norman Rockwell and Joseph Csatari, then see a collection of uniforms, themes and documents from the beginning of the Scouts movement in America.
Art enthusiasts can stop by the Irving Arts Centre to see a wide range of cultural and civic events. Catch a famous play, such as the “Nutcracker” and check out one of their rotating exhibitions, such as the Worlds of Colour and Light. You can also tour the outdoor sculpture garden created to showcase Texas artists.
