The AKC Museum of the Dog has built one of the largest repositories of canine-related art in the world. For the past 30 years, this collection has been lovingly cared for and displayed at its current home outside of St. Louis, MO. We are pleased to announce that the Museum of the Dog will be returning to New York City, home of the AKC headquarters, and where the Museum first took root. This move provides an opportune moment for the Museum to reimagine itself and present its treasures to a far larger audience in one of the greatest cultural capitals in the world.

From Our Collection
The American Kennel Club Museum of the Dog celebrates the human-canine relationship. It is the place where people come to learn about and appreciate this singular animal. Through the Museum's extensive collections of fine art and artifacts, dynamic exhibits and activities, and occasional real-life interactions with famous dogs, visitors to the new museum in New York will develop a deeper understanding of- and love for- our canine companions. We are pleased to present a sampling here of some of the gems from the collection.

The Campaign for the Museum of the Dog

The plans for the new Museum of the Dog in New York follow much thoughtful consideration and planning. They have been motivated by a strong desire to create a special, interactive space where dog enthusiasts from around the world can develop a deeper understanding of their beloved canine companions.

We are pleased to announce that we have undertaken a multi-year Capital Campaign to help ensure the success of the new Museum space and to present innovative, world-class exhibits and programming. As part of this effort, you are invited to become a partner in this exciting new chapter in the Museum’s and New York City’s history. Supporters at every level will be recognized in the new space, and unique naming opportunities for individual, dog clubs, corporations, foundations and government entities will be presented in these pages, as well as in our communications throughout Campaign. If you are interested in learning more about this effort and how you might help, please contact Robert Holcomb, Executive Director of Development at museumofthedog@akc.org or at 212.696.8269.
