  • Very welcoming and so many awesome pieces of dog art! Our dogs were welcomed and staff were all happy...we lost our poo bags inside and we're surprised to find out they had closed as soon as we left! :/ We had no idea the ladies were waiting for us to leave! As we were exiting the parking lot, a staff member came to the car with the bags!
  • Dogs and Art. If you like these two things, this is the place for you. Luckily, for my wife these are two of her favorite things and she enjoyed her entire time at this museum. There are three stories with the top level filled with quite a few paintings ranging from the the 18th to 21st century. The ground floor had a lot of dogs painted and sculpted in a more modern style. The bottom floor consisted mostly of the history of military and police dog with an emphasis on the K-9 Department of St. Louis County. It was a nice trip for my wife and I though I think that the six dollar fee was a bit steep.
  • Lots of great paintings of dogs. If you like these, I'm sure you'll enjoy their galleries.
  • It's nice to be able to bring your dog and there are some unique paintings and sculptures.
  • I went to the museum on a non- guest dog day. The paintings, sculptures, and history were very cool, but I was hoping that a dog museum would have more activities for a dog and its owners. The $6 admission seemed steep to me.
