Museum of the Dog, Town & Country

Location: 1721 S. Mason Rd, St. Louis, MO 63131


I've always wanted to check this place out, and we finally made it over there today. This is a fine art museum, much like the Art Museum, except all the art is of dogs. My kids were not impressed because they thought real live dogs were going to be here. All dogs are welcome however, which I found out when Nick laid on a bench and came up with dog hair all over his pants! If you're a dog lover then you will probably love this place. Just keep in mind that kids can't touch anything.

I didn't realize the museum was housed in a historic home. The Jarville House is one of the oldest houses in St. Louis County, built in 1853. It was built in the Greek Revival style, but when it was purchased by Edgar Queeny, the founder of Monsanto, it was expanded in the Georgian Revival style, which is highly compatible to the original.

It says kids are $1 but kids 3 and under are free

Greek replica doghouse!
