About the Museum
The Museum of Hounds and Hunting at Morven Park, Leesburg, VA
On May 24, 1985 the museum opened in the north wing of the stately Mansion at Morven Park thanks to a small group of sporting enthusiasts.
They conceived the idea in order to preserve the art, artifacts and memorabilia of foxhunting in North America. Seeking to acquire important and valuable artifacts before they are lost, the museum provides a special place for the preservation and display of the sport’s rich history and by developing educational exhibits, promotes public understanding of hunting with hounds.
Year-End Message from the Chairman
Dear Member and Friend of the Museum,
We have wonderful Christmas news! The Museum of Hounds and Hunting North America is expanding to the charming Town of Middleburg, Virginia with an anticipated Grand Opening in early 2024. We are thrilled to have found a prominent locale, the circa 1820 historic building, at 11 West Washington Street. In earlier days, the building was occupied by the National Sporting Library, and then Barton’s Art Gallery. We will continue to maintain our well-established presence at the Morven Park Mansion since 1985. The Middleburg and Leesburg galleries expand our reach and offer enhanced benefits to our membership.
