Three special exhibits within the Mansion have been specifically curated for the Westminster Dog Show.  Two exhibits showcase objects from the Lyndhurst permanent collections never before on view that relate to the history of dog ownership on the estate.  A third tableau located on the second-floor art gallery displays the portrait of Haunt of the Woodcock: Sensation and Bang Bang and the rediscovered Gould Cup trophy.
