Over the years I've attended dog-related activities at the Museum. They allowed us to bring our greyhounds for a greyhound day. I've taken classes on animal communication there. It's an asset to the community and is in a beautiful location.

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 of signs.

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!

This museum is interesting if you love dogs. It primarily consists of paintings and mini-figurines but they are fun to look at. I think this museum would be more impactful for young children if they had toys that were dog themed or other playful type...More
