About the Museum
Preserving a centuries old sporting tradition
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.
