Gone to the dogs

The American Kennel Club Museum of the Dog is now open at its new Manhattan location on Park Avenue. The museum houses one of the world’s largest collections of canine fine art.

The newly designed space will house art from famous dog artists such as Sir Edwin Landseer, Maud Earl, and more. It also has a two-story glass vitrine that encases rare porcelains and bronzes, in addition to a library. The museum’s first exhibition will be entitled “For the Love of All Things Dog” and combines select works from the the American Kennel Club’s own collection and that of the museum.

Throughout the space, visitors will experience exhibits that bridge the digital and physical elements of the museum and bring new life to the collection. The gallery includes interactive exhibits such as a “Find Your Match” kiosk that takes your photo, aligning its likeness with a registered dog breed. Additionally, there is a “Meet the Breeds” touchscreen table that allows visitors to explore breeds’ features, traits, and history.

The museum will also have an app where users can interact with the exhibits. American Kennel Club Museum of the Dog (101 Park Avenue between East 40th & 41st Streets, museumofthedog.org).
