Dog Themed Tours at the Met
Learn more about how your furry pal played a role in art
Dogs have a very long history symbolizing the epitome of royalty and loyalty. Whether hounds have been appearing in ceremonies, guarding their imperial owners, going on hunts, or snuggling in the laps of royals, they’ve been a strong part of life all over the world for centuries.
Experience our dog-themed art tours at the Met designed to showcase the role of dogs and pet portraiture from ancient times through today. Take a cultural and historic journey through time and learn how our faithful companions have been a focal point in art for centuries through our themed private tour. Highlights include:
A private, guided tour with ART SMART makes pet themed tours more insightful and memorable. Whether you are seeking a unique experience alongside friends, professional colleagues, or family, our professional art historian guides will take you beyond the standard tour and straight to the collections and history that will appeal to the love of your furry companions.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City is the perfect NYC museum to explore if you want to get a broad selection of the finest art focused on your furry pals. With dozens of galleries filled with American, European, Egyptian, Asian, Modern and Contemporary, and Ancient art (plus rotating exhibitions), there is no end of things to see and do on your Met tour.
This tour runs through February 2020.
Note: This is not, however, your chance to bring your own pooch to the Met! In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, guide dogs are always welcome at the Met, but otherwise, please leave your pets at home.
$25 per adult, $15 per senior, and $10 per child.
