It's a museum that invites visitors to come!The American Kennel Club Museum of the Dog opens Feb. 8 in midtown Manhattan, returning to New York after three decades on the outskirts of St. Louis.About 150 pieces from the kennel club's mostly donated collection are on view at the museum, which also has a library area for perusing some of the club's 15,000 books.The museum opened in the kennel club's former headquarters in New York in 1982 .Seeking more space and hoping to attract more than its roughly 15,000 annual visitors, the museum moved in 1987 to a historic house owned by St. Louis County.Neither did the hoped-for attendance boost: The museum counted under 10,000 visitors last year, Fausel said.
