  • This is a nice museum if you appreciate art and dogs. There are many interesting art pieces and they all feature dogs! It is about 10 miles away from downtown St. Louis but is easy to find with plenty...  more »
  • We have been here several times with our kids over the years, and we are not even pet owners. This place has a great "seek and find" game that gets the kids interacting with the museum. Gotta go!  more »
  • We had to find dog-related activities while on vacation so the Dog Museum was easily added to the list. Not sure if it is what I expected or not, but the staff was friendly, and they gave my sons (age...  more »

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • It's nice to be able to bring your dog and there are some unique paintings and sculptures.
