For many years we have been collecting exhibits for this museum. We were always offended that there was a Cat Museum, a Mouse Museum, and a Museum of Frogs in Russia, but there was no Dog Museum, even though dogs have done so much for people. Now the Museum of Dogs is the keeper of the centuries-long friendship between man and dog. Six thematic halls showcase different periods of Russian history when the lives of humans and dogs were inseparable from each other. We are glad that interesting, unique, and self-denying people, who love dogs just like us, gather around us.
The Museum of Dogs contains unique objects, documents, photographs, posters, and much more, in one way or another connected to dogs and their role in historical events.
There are seven halls in the museum:
– hunting dogs;
– working dogs;
– dogs in Northland research;
– war dogs;
– dogs in space;
– dogs in circuses;
– decorative dog breeding.
Each of the halls is a whole layer of Russian history, with many unique events and a huge number of known and little-known facts.
