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.

Events & Exhibits

Current events postponed due to COVID-19.

The museum serves as both the departure point for offsite excursions and as the venue for several events held at Morven Park. 

Membership offers the opportunity to visit other institutions where related exhibits are on display. Members and friends are also encouraged to attend the special events, presentations, receptions, and other informative and entertaining functions hosted throughout the year.

The Huntsmen's Room

In 1997, the Museum dedicated a room to honor all huntsmen for their immense contributions to the sport, from its earliest days to the present.​
