Visitors don’t have to be scouts to enjoy the fun and excitement offered by The National Scouting Museum, featuring virtual reality adventures, a historical chronology of the Scouting, and a Norman Rockwell art gallery.  The Ruth Paine House Museum offers the very human account of the events related to President John F. Kennedy’s assassination that occurred in this small, suburban home.

The Irving Arts Center, a Smithsonian Affiliate, houses four arts galleries, two theaters and an outdoor sculpture garden.  Enjoy the mix of contemporary and traditional art and then come back to enjoy a play or concert.

Want to spend time outside? Gondola Adventures, Inc. and Stand Up Paddle North Texas offer visitors excursions on the Mandalay Canal and Lake Carolyn.
