The Mustangs of Las Colinas, Irving

(320+ reviews on the web)
Monument
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.

  • You can drive by or park and walk to it. The lovely sculpture is at a distance so if you really want to view it park and take a short walk. It's located within a large courtyard surrounded by building...  more »
  • The nine bronze larger-than-life mustangs running across the granite fountain is pretty awesome when you realize how the water spouts are placed to create the real-life splash that hooves in a stream ...  more »
  • The mustangs are in front of an office building in a freely accessible plaza and there is a free mini-museum. It's just down the road from the Irving Las Colinas Dart station.  more »

  • the best in Irving!! Incredible architecture! Its the best to around Irving to spend an hour or two around Las Colinas/Irving area. If you are a photographer that's a picture perfect place as well. This is said to be the largest equestrian sculpture in the world. And the nearby area is also perfect for an evening walk, like the lake Carolyn or the trails nearby.
  • One of the most impressive fountains that I have ever visited! Surrounded by three contemporary buildings is a very nice place that you have to visit during your stay in Dallas!
  • I visited this place when it opened in the 1980s, and remembered it as an amazing place of horse sculptures. This description didn't move my wife much, but I convinced her to go (barely remembering the place myself), and it was awe inspiring! We went in the middle of a fairly hot day - not the best time - but it really moved us anyway. (I do recommend going at night instead, when it's lit up - although I think the accompanying Mustang Museum (which is free) would be closed.
  • One of the nicest and romantic places in DFW to hang out any time, most suitable when its not sunny or after sunset.
  • Enjoy this spot every time I visit. Great spot to take a date. The layout is done real well.
