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!

I enjoyed seeing this dance complex. It would be better served if they called it a dance center with a museum space. It seemed like there is more going on in terms of classes than being a "Hall-of-Fame" center. I expected to see large permanent exhibits. The gift shop did not carry much to take home. Better gift shop at... More

This beautiful converted building which was once the Lincoln Bath is the perfect place to look at the history of dance in America. The exhibits are interesting both visually and educationally. I loved the enlarged photos of the dancers that were taken from the book Dancers Among Us. I had to purchase a copy at the gift shop. The exhibits... More

I visited the museum for a master tap class and the studios were extremely well kept and the instructors were excellent. They have classes all throughout the year for novices and advanced dancers!

A lot of the way we look at things are directly related to our expectations. We had little, as we thought the exhibits would be limited in scope and "style" - so we were very pleasantly surprised to find much, much more of interest. Thank goodness for benefactors who donate so much of their money and time to make such... More

It was a great place to see, especially on a rainy day. My daughter dances so it was very interesting. Lots to see. Great family day.
