Museum of Dog Kicks Off National Tour
Museum of Dog, which opened in North Adams, Mass., last year, has closed for winter tours and is hitting the road with its mobile museum. Dogs everywhere will have the chance to see the museum dedicated to them as MOD travels throughout the U.S. on the Instagram #DogLimo Tour.
“The famed vintage dog limousines and the mobile dog museum school bus are hitting the road to spread the love of dogs through an Instagram Pop-Up experience," said David York, Museum of Dog founder.
Thousands of dogs and their humans will be able to create their personalized images amidst some of the museum's favorite treasures, he added.
The limo’s bars will be stocked with Wellness Pet Food treats, one of the tour sponsors. An accompanying school bus will house the current exhibit of Brian Nash, along with a collection of sculptures, paintings, photographs and some of the museum's antique dog collars around one of the museum sofas and the colorful squirrel pillows.
The first stop on tour will be at the Barking Hound Village Dallas location on Cedar Springs Road in Dallas with multiple dates in November and December. The tour will continue in Atlanta, Charlotte, N.C., Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, New York and Boston with dates to be announced soon.
Although six cities have been scheduled for tour stops, York said the schedule allows other cities to be added, depending on demand.
The museum's website, Facebook page, and Instagram page have all been experiencing hundreds of requests for additional stops. One $20 ticket covers four "bodies" (two humans plus two dogs, or one human plus three dogs, etc. More details and tickets are available on the company's website, museumofdog.com.
