If you love dance this is worth a visit. Many costumes and photos of famous dancers of all types. The architecture of the building makes it a great place just to walk around and look at. I understand they rent out spaces for weddings as well. Often special activities and craft fairs are also held here.

A small but really nice museum. We were fortunate to enter just as a dance recital was taking place. Great time! Interesting exhibits and good photography!

I had photographed a wedding here before, but never ventured past the foyer. One day, I spent the $6.50 and was delighted - beyond words really. Right now there is a Tango exhibit going on there, as well as other historic timelines of dance. I honestly was blown away with the detail here and will be back for another visit... More

when I first went to this museum, it was to visit only the gift shop. But, after speaking with visitors we changed our minds and did enjoy our visit

I have visited Saratoga to attend performances of New York City Ballet for many years and always visit the Museum. Every exhibit is beautiful and informative. This year the museum seemed more beautiful than ever and if you visit in the morning you may see the classes at the summer school.
