  • This museum was fairly fun if you enjoy art and dogs. The art did get a bit repetitive and it felt small for the entry fee.
  • Beautiful museum dedicated to artwork showing dogs of all breeds. Loved reading the history and tributes to dogs who worked alongside man in wars and other service jobs. I don't know of any other museum that is dedicated to honoring man's best friend in such a poignant way!
  • Nice museum to walk around and was neat that they allow dogs to walk through as well. My favorite exhibit was the Dogs in Service.
  • This place is fantastic. If you are looking for a place to hold a wedding, or any event for that matter, look this place up. Ive seen everything to weddings to pug play days (all pugs, all day). They are wonderful to work with and inexpensive as well. Plus, their gift shop is very nice as well. They hold dog days, where a breed of dog comes in to show how they are, and this is for the public!
  • Great find. The only thing missing was actual dogs :)
