January 08, 2019

“New York City is going to the dogs.

The American Kennel Club Museum of the Dog will open its doors in midtown Manhattan on Feb. 8, just a few days before the start of the popular 142-year old Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.

The space, located in the Kalikow Building at 101 Park Avenue, will house one of the world’s largest collections of canine fine art.

It marks the museum’s return to New York after a 32-year absence. The museum had moved to West St. Louis County, Missouri, during that time.

The American Kennel Club (AKC) decided it was time to bring the collection back to a larger audience. New York City is home to more than 100 museums, and AKC wanted its to be the only one dedicated to dogs.”
