The dog museum returns to New York


After more than 30 years, on February 8th ‘The AKC Museum of the Dog’, the museum dedicated to man’s best friend, opens its doors again in New York. A space on two floors at number 101 Park Avenue entirely dedicated to dogs. The museum was born in 1982 in the New York Life Building in Madison Avenue from “American Kennel Club”, the register of dogs with pedigree, then in 1987 it was transferred to Missouri, In the museum there will be exhibitions of all kinds, as well as hundreds of paintings and sculptures in which the main subject is absolutely trustworthy. The first exhibition after the opening will be ‘For the Love of All Things Dog’, with a six-month exhibition.

Although we can boast of being the largest art museum in the world, the one in NY is not the only one. In fact, we remember that always in the USA, in Tennessee, in Grand Junction there is the National Bird Dog Museum, dedicated to the precious breed of hunting dogs, with the “Retriever Field Trial Hall of Fame” while in Wasilla, Alaska, there is the Iditarod Museum, entirely dedicated to the fascinating sled dogs.  Europe has also worked hard, in fact in Germany in Passau, lovers of dachshunds will find over 4500 objects inspired by the dog breed to which the museum is dedicated and in Switzerland, in Martigny, there is Barryland, the museum dedicated to the friend St. Bernard. In Leeds Castle, Kent, England, there is The Dog Collar Museum, with its precious collection consisting of no less than 130 antique collars.
