I was in Girl Scouts, my husband is an Eagle Scout, and we loved this place! It's quite small but incredibly well curated. Fun for kids too - has a small shooting gallery and a derby car race track! Fun to see all the history behind it! If you are scared of mannequins though maybe avoid it. They have some that move and talk. My husband thought they were hilarious but they creeped me out!

Fascinating and magnificent step back in time to that fateful day in 1963. The city of Irving, Texas went to great lengths to show us exactly what Ruth Paine's house looked like and felt like that terrible day in November. It's quite small but filled to the brim with the feel of that day. Well worth the trip. Chris, the tour guide didn't rush and was quite informative in answering all of my questions.

IAC has great free kids events, and free exhibits indoors and a fun, albeit small sculpture garden outside. We have fully enjoyed every one of our trips to the IAC. My kids have had a great time at the summer art camps and theater camps, they have both performed on the Carpenter stage and attended performances there. The Carpenter theater is indeed, as other reviewers have pointed out, a wonderful space where every seat is good.
