CLICK HERE FOR A VIRTUAL TOUR of Mush! A tribute to sled dogs from arctic exploration to the iditarod
The Museum of the Dog may be temporarily closed, but we are determined to deliver accessible, educational content to you.
Above is a virtual tour of our current exhibition with educational discussion questions.
September 8 - January 3, 2021
This exhibit will look back on the different breeds of dogs that have lived at the White House. The exhibition will look at the history of these breeds, highlight specific dogs that were owned by US presidents, and examine the influence these breeds had on the dog world as well as the American public at large. From George Washington’s Foxhounds all the way to Bo and Sunny the Portuguese Water Dogs, this exhibit will examine the role of dogs in American presidential history. This exhibition will contain artwork from the MoD collection, historic documents from the AKC archives, and photo reproductions.
Out of courtesy to our neighbors, only service dogs and invited demonstration dogs are allowed in the museum.
