Small but rich and entertaining. There are 4 major exhibition spaces. In the 1st one you can watch some dance videos on big screen, in the 2nd - costume sketches and stage designs. The most precious part of the collection are dance costumes designed by Lev Bakst, de Chiriko etc and worn by Dyagilev ballet dancers and other world-known talents.

I went with a friend who is very interested in the subject, and expected a few hours of boredom. However - I wasn't. I truly enjoyed myself - the exhibitions dealing with dancing in foreign countries are especially fascinating...

Thus is a real find and treasure, recommended by a theatre friend. Apart from the permanent exhibitions, which include amazing costumes designed by Bakst for Diaghilev and the Ballets Russes and a set by Fernand Leger, in addition to masks and ceremonial clothing from Africa, the Swedish ballet also figured prominently at the same time as the Diaghilev group.

A small exhibition that is free - the collection of tribal masks and theatrical costumes from Asian and other countries is much more interesting than the main ballet/dance related exhibits.

This museum had little liveliness - mainly a maze of mannequins and pictures in various past-century dance costumes behind glass showcases...very little contemporary ballet, jazz, folk. I'd have liked several on-demand movies/videos of the progression of dance styles from the 12th to current centuries...in Sweden and worldwide. There was no one to talk to, no guides, no literature, historical or... More
