2020 is the 144th consecutive show— making it the second-longest-running sporting event in the United States, behind only the Kentucky Derby.
The show is Mon./Tues., Feb. 10/11.
Discount tickets are $35, which is nearly $20 less than the walk-up price.
Did you know the Westminster Kennel people have opened a dog museum?
Museum of the Dog is in midtown.
Nearly 200 canine-theme artworks are on display, including paintings of White House dogs, 18th century figurines, when depicting dogs in art became popular, and a 30-million-year-old dog fossil.
Interactive exhibits teach about the traits of nearly 200 breeds, and there’s a 15,000 book library of all things dog.
One of the most popular features is the “Find Your Match” kiosk lets you snap a photo to discover which breed your face resembles most.
The museum is in the Kalikow Building at 101 Park Avenue, one block from Grand Central Terminal, where the American Kennel Club headquarters are located.
AKC hopes the new dog museum will attract 100,000 visitors a year. But only human visitors are welcome.
Except for Service Dogs, dogs are not allowed in the dog museum.
Tickets are $15 for adults, $5 for children under 12 and $10 for seniors, students and military.
