The AKC Museum of the Dog has reopened as of August 25!

How to get here

No matter where you're coming from, the Museum of the Dog is only a quick walk, train, or bus ride away! Located just two blocks south of Grand Central Terminal, it couldn't be easier to navigate to the Museum of the Dog. Driving in? No problem! The Museum of the Dog offers validated parking for up to three hours in the building's parking garage.


The Museum is located near Grand Central Station, one of the world’s most proverbial transportation hubs. The station is the terminus for MetroNorth railway and is served by the following subway lines: S, 4, 5, 6, 7. The Museum entrance is located on East 40th Street.


Bus service Northbound is provided by the 1, 2, 3, 4 lines going up Fifth Avenue and Southbound on Lexington Avenue by the 101,102 and 103 lines as well as the Q32 and M42. Additionally, shuttle buses to all three major airports, LaGuardia, JFK, and Newark, stop just behind the museum on 41st Street. The Museum entrance is located on East 40th Street.


Should you decide to drive, there is a parking garage beneath the building as well as several garages on nearby 39th street. The Museum entrance is located on East 40th Street.
