Opens January 2019. 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 cared for and displayed at its former home outside of St. Louis, Missouri. Now the Museum of the Dog is 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.
