My husband and I recently spent a few enjoyable hours at this gem of a museum right inside the state park. On one side of this restored bathhouse are changing exhibits and on the other side homage to dance hall of famers. We learned a lot and especially enjoyed the exhibit on dance in the movies. Also, be sure to... More

Go! Nice walk near a fabulous park. Very well presented. History of American dance. Tommy Tune's shoes. History of tutus. The BEST hands on area for kids. The museum is a wonder. Go!

This is a beautiful facility - we know one couple who held there wedding reception there. The museum is fairly small with a few exhibits of magnificent photographs and costumes. The current Hollywood film exhibit was fun, with the video clips of great dancers such as Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly, and we found the exhibit of costumes and musical... More

I have been in Saratoga many times and never visited this national gold mine until now. I was stunned when in walked in to view the exhibit on the Dance Theatre of Harlem. The exhibit is Spellbinding; It explodes in visual fantasy with costumes, art work, and film. This is a must see for art and history lovers of all... More

I was totally taken with the physical space, the staff and the exhibits. The current tribute to the Dance Theater of Harlem is of particular interest with its focus on several of the masterworks of the company, especially A Streetcar Named Desire. The permanent exhibits should be of interest to dance enthusiasts. I am not a dancer, but I found... More

This museum was more than expected! The grounds were beautiful and the exhibits were amazing! From the Dance Theatre of Harlem to the ancient Mayan dance rituals, there was definitely lots to see! They even had a super cute area for children to explore as well. A must see if you are a passionate dancer, or like myself just love... More

The best source of dance with changing exhibits. I always love everything about this museum. Its revolving exhibits are as interesting as the permanent ones

And if you are with someone who is passionate about dance you will still find this museum interesting because of the nicely done presentation related to cultural history in the US. The museum is housed in one of the old natural spring spas at Saratoga. The fee is minimal - $6.50 for adults, $5.00 for seniors. I didn't catch the... More

The Dance Museum was much smaller than we expected, but we have 2 dancers in our family so it was still an interesting stop on our visit to Saratoga Springs

We went to the museum yesterday to find it closed! If you aren't going to open, change the information on your website to make it accurate. Very disappointing!
