A (sort of) new art museum opens in Midtown on February 8, 2019, and New Yorkers won’t stop barking about it. Yep, we're referring to the Museum of the Dog—an exhibition comprising more than 180 sculptures and paintings of four-legged furballs.

It’s worth noting that this attraction isn’t exactly new. The American Kennel Club has moved the original Museum of the Dog—formerly located at the New York Life Building—closer to its headquarters where it can live beside the AKC’s library and archives. Guest are able to view canine-related artifacts on display and interact with a digital “Meet the Breeds” table, which provides info on all 193 AKC recognized dog breeds.

Other tech-savvy highlights—like a photobooth that tells you which dog breed looks the most like you, and a digital, interactive puppy training course—should appeal to dog lovers as well. The current exhibit will remain open for six months before it changes to spotlight canine-themed art created by all female artists. Woof!
