The National Scouting Museum is worthy of a visit for Boy Scouts and non-Boy Scouts alike. Free on both Sundays and Mondays, the National Scouting Museum is located at 1329 Walnut Hill Ln in Irving.
From glass cases of uniforms throughout the history of the Scouts in the U.S. to Scouts all over the world, to artifacts, gear and demonstrations of Scout activities, this museum will make any boy want to be part of this great movement. Robotic storytellers depicting the birth of the Scouts chant their backgrounds in front of a virtual campfire. However, there are many opportunities for fun for those who can’t sit still including a bicycle game, a car race track and a laser shooting game.
A Norman Rockwell exhibit displays Rockwell’s work inspired by and depicting the Boy Scouts, images that are still famous after all these years, nostalgic for ex-scouts and parents too.
The museum is open on Mondays from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Tuesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sundays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Admission for adults is $8.00 and $6 for children ages 4 to 12. Scouts get in for $5.
