Hollywood Dogs

This new exhibition examines the history of dogs on film from the very genesis of the medium all the way through the “Golden Age of Hollywood Dogs.” It features original movie posters of some of the biggest canine blockbusters, from Lassie to Old Yeller and more. Famous animated and cartoon dogs are highlighted in the exhibition as well. They are featured in unique pieces like a celluloid from the hit movie All Dogs Go to Heaven, original storyboards from Peanuts comic strips, and more

The permanent collection of the museum is one of the finest and largest collections of canine-related fine art and artifacts in the world. It comprises paintings, watercolors, drawings, prints, ceramics and bronzes. Additionally, objects such as trophies, collars and other dog-related works are included in the collection.
