A really good art collection, no charge for your dog ($5 for people) and located in a park ideal for walks before or after

“One of a Kind”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

If you like dogs, this is a must-see. If you don't like dogs, this museum is not for you because everything (100%) here is related to dogs. I was very impressed.

“If you love dogs............”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

This is a wonderful museum that every animal lover will enjoy, especially those who love dogs. The grounds are beautiful themselves, and the old home that houses the museum is an attraction in itself. We were very impressed with the War Dog exhibit and the descriptions of the ways each dog served his handler and our country. It was very touching. There is such a wonderful variety of paintings, sculptures, and photographs. The fee to visit is minimal and the staff is very friendly.............really a highlight of our trip.

“Great tribute !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Who would have ever thought to have museum for dogs ! The painting and sculptures are just amazing. The area for service dogs so unbelievable and so informative. To think this place is near my house in a beautiful hose that has been renovated with lots of windows that let in so much light. Great places for families - and forget to walk the surrounding park - Queeny Park.

“very nice museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

Very nice place to visit, part restored old house and new addition with many many photos and statues of all breeds of dogs.
Even a whole section on service dogs used by Police, fire, search and rescue personel. They also hold classes there for obedience training in a very large room. Dogs Are Alowed in...
