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

We were pleasant to find out that such a place exist. We can to Saratoga to see the New York City Ballet and we spent an afternoon in the museum. It is a small place with a variety of exhibits. We very much enjoyed the Tango Exhibit. If you have time stop by. The price is reasonable. You will have... 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.

This is a lovely museum. It is very reasonable in terms of cost. The "125 Years of Tango" exhibit was very informative. We were disappointed that the "Gene Kelly" exhibit was taken down- on the day we got there. You only need about 1-2 hours to get through the entire museum.

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
