We had gone to cash in our groupon deal which would give us admittance to other area museums. The 4 grandchildren wanted to stay and play (we had visited here last year). They had so much fun changing costumes and dancing on the stage and playing bongos and creating "shows" for us to watch from the theater seats. This space... More

Had an amazing time. The venue was gorgeous and the costumes and museum were captivating. The entrance was so bright and white and ethereal.

The museum was supposed to be open, but when we got there discovered that it was closed and that they were setting up for an event later in the day. In fact, a lot of other visitors were disappointed or annoyed by this as well .Why rent it out during regular business hours? I really wanted to visit this place.... More

They get new exhibits year-round. On my most recent visit, there was an exhibit of Gene Kelly movies, posters, artifacts and memorabilia, plus a TV screen showing a continuous loop of clips from his movies. There was also an exhibit of Saratoga ballet shoe statues and a collection of ballet costumes and clips from interviews with choreographers. Finally, there was... More

I was a bit bored and didn't find the exhibits (except for some of the art) very interesting. To be fair, I'm not a dancer. My daughter is however, and she wasn't thrilled, either. She's a bit young though, ten. The day we were there, it was free to get in. The facility itself is beautiful - pristine, in fact.

The new exhibit that opened March 21, 2015 is a don't miss opportunity. The Museum has prepared a very professional showing of costumes, photos, videos and other items relating to this beautiful dance. The special event for the opening was gorgeous with two tango dancing couples, refreshments and music. It drew far more people than they had anticipated and I... More

If you love dance...a very special place. Changing exhibits, classes, and presentations. Again you are asking too much.

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
