We had our rehearsal dinner here, and we loved it! The staff is so easy to work with, and the rental space was inexpensive. As dog lovers, we could not think of a better place to celebrate with friends and family. People loved getting to go through part of the museum during our event!

Oh my God is all I can say. I have wanted to visit this place for years, and so glad that I did. It will soon be moving to New York City and I doubt I'll be making a trip up there unless I was going to Westminster for the weekend. The artwork is spectacular. The grounds are beautiful. Any place that's on the property is open to you and your dogs. Be respectful of the area, and leave it as you found it. There is artwork inside that just makes you realize how long the love of dogs has existed in the world. There were metal collars that dated to the 13th century, the oldest piece of artwork I saw was in the early 1700. Again just lovely and the curator was one of the most Pleasant people.

Great place to spend a relaxing couple of hours. Lots of interesting artifacts from the past...seeing how ancient breeds were used to work, old hand-forged metal collars, rare breed information. Bigger than you might expect this place to be.

Dog lovers will be rolling on their backs and racing back and forth across the room at this museum. It hosts hundreds upon hundreds of artifacts and pieces of art about Man's Best Friend... ceramics, paintings, metal sculptures -- from serious to silly. You'll easily spend an hour or two enjoying every little nook.

Great place to go. Changes at every so often. Why is AKC moving the museum?
