Museum day at Burgh House

It’s not often we get go to museums but this was after all an exhibition for the Year of the (Rescue) Dog in Burgh House and Hampstead Museum. We have walked past Burgh House in Hampstead quite a few times before And have been curious about the cafe in the garden.  Wondered if they’re dog friendly –We’ve never stopped to ask. This time we walked in as the Hampstead Museum is inside this 300 year old Queen Anne-era house Burgh House.  We  had come to view the Year of the (Rescue) Dog Exhibition It’s a collection of photos taken by a host of different photographers that showcased rescue dogs from All Dogs Matter and their owners.

We had time to check out the rest of the house, looked into the lovely rooms.We were even allowed to go upstairs to see this beautiful house.Lovely gardens as well!May’s comment: Always on the lookout for unusual dog activities.

When we found out there was a photo exhibit entitled Year of the (Rescue) Dog by All Dogs Matter at Burgh House and Hampstead Museum – only then did we realise the venue was dog-friendly. The exhibit ends this Sunday, 15 July.

There’s a permanent exhibit that explores the history and development of Hampstead.  On their website you can find out about exhibits and performances.

The opening times for House & Museum: 12pm – 5pm Wednesday – Friday & Sunday

I think I would easily go to more museums if I could bring any of my dogs.

And the Buttery cafe is also dog-friendly – both inside and outside.Burgh House & Hampstead Museum at Burgh House, New End Square, London NW3 1LT

    What a wonderful idea for the museum. It is so important to rescue an animal. My maltipoo was one hour away from being euthanized when I had a rescue pull him for me. Best decision I ever made.
