Since when do you pay admission to an art gallery exhibit? That's what this is and at $15.00 a person ridiculously high. The so called "museum" is filled with portraits of dogs and sculptures of dogs and bri-a-brac of dogs and a gift shop of...More

Loved the dog museum. Lots of art pieces, good souvenir shop, an exciting interactive exhibit which pairs you up with the dogs you most resemble. Watch the rolling mural as you enter. Senior and vet rates.

We thought the video screens with the dog silhouettes were charming, but the museum itself it sadly lacking in appeal. The dry character of the exhibits is sad because the playing out of the subject could be so absolutely engaging. There is just a little...More

This was a short burst of fun, much more for adults than for kids. Since it's run by the AKC, there's no mutts, too bad. But there's a great collection of paintings of different breeds and some interactive fun on the first floor where your...More

The artwork would make a nice free exhibit in the lobby of an office building, but there just isn't enough substance to justify the price of admission. When I asked for a map or other visitor's guide, I was told to go to the AKC...More

I work at an art museum but I have never seen such glee from patrons as they streamed into this new-to-New York Museum . The joy and the common bond between visitors was palpable. The current exhibition was beautiful. The interactive stations are terrific. If...More

This museum was very small and is entirely devoted to dog art. There is not much historical information, and not much devoted to the history of breeds. I was in and out in less than an hour and I’m an avid lover of dogs. The...More

Dog lovers will enjoy the paintings and sculptures of dogs, also the giant Airedaire that sits in the lobby. But for us the most enjoyable part of the museum was the three interactive exhibits. The first one you come to takes your photo, then tells...More
