The Mustangs of Las Colinas, Irving

4.2
#1 of 11 in Things to do in Irving
Tourist from around the world come to view the impressive, larger-than-life depiction that serves as the centerpiece of Williams Square, a stark, pink-granite plaza in the Las Colinas Urban Center.



This is a must-see for visitors and residents alike.

Adjacent to the sculpture, in the East Tower of Williams Square Plaza, is the Mustangs of Las Colinas Museum. In the museum, visitors learn the story of the eight years of work African wildlife artist Robert Glen invested in creating the Mustangs. The museum also presents a short film which brings to life for the visitor the time and effort that went into designing, molding, and mounting this distinctive piece of public art. Other works of art by Robert Glen are also on display in the museum.

Admission to the museum is free.

    Worth the visit! Life-size bronze statues, the Mustangs! The layout of the sculptures and water fountains at the feet of horses, that they are on the move! Impressive!

    This plaza housed a great piece of art but beyond that the security was rude and there wasn't much else.  more »

    I love this spot. Especially when there's open parking on the street adjacent to these majestic creatures. I don't know why I'm so drawn to this place, but I've found myself here taking photos of these guys several times over the recent years. Side note: be prepared to be confronted by security if you look "professional," while snapping those photos (i.e., if you break out the tripod). Without fail, the moment I attach my camera to a tripod, security makes a beeline for my position. They must have a prewritten script on what to say,and it goes something like this: "Are you taking these photos for commercial purposes?" "No, sir. Just for fun." I break into a big smile for emphasis on how much fun I'm having for no monetary profit. "So, you don't plan on selling these photos then?" "No, Sir, I do not." "Okay, have a nice day." All that was to say, you can take as many photos as you like here, but you can't sell them or market them for monetary gain. Just be prepared for the above conversation. The mustangs are very photogenic and worth a stop if you're nearby!

    This sculpture and museum is very cool. The lady in the museum was so kind and helpful. She encouraged us to come in and learn more, watch the video and it was worth our time.

    The Mustangs of Las Colinas are a must-see when visiting the Irving area. Free. Kid and pet friendly. Amazing. Always a good time.

    Breathtaking!...the bronze horses are awesome....what an artist. They look like they are live horses running through the fountain. It was worth the trip. The buildings were built after the horses were created and placed in the courtyard.The Mustangs Museum had many creations of various animals and tribal figures by the same artist. Absolutely beautiful!

    Loved it but the only thing was this Coporate Security Guard came out asking whether or not we were gonna use these photos that we were taking for anything other than personal use. We said no. But anyways go check them out they're a site to see!
