Quality of Life

Although Irving's business districts and master-planned communities are global attractions, the city proudly boasts unique historic sites, parks, museums and numerous other attractions. Here is just a sample of Irving's thriving and growing attractions:

  • The Toyota Music Factory, a distinct entertainment district located in Las Colinas next to the Irving Convention Center at Las Colinas, opened in 2017 and features a music venue (The Pavilion at the Toyota Music Factory), restaurants, and an Alamo Drafthouse Cinema.
  • The Irving Arts Center, owned by the city, is a home for the arts, housing 10 resident arts organizations. The Irving Arts Center is a Smithsonian Affiliate.
  • The city owns and operates three historical museums: The Jackie Townsell Bear Creek Heritage Center, The Ruth Paine House Museum, and The Mustangs of Las Colinas Museum. A fourth historical museum, the Irving Archives and Museum, is planned to open in late 2019.
