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.

Our family (grandparents, adult children and grandchild) loved this museum. My 7 year old niece loved putting on the costumes and putting on an impromptu performance for us. I thought I was going to be bored in this museum but I was captivated! If you are in the Saratoga area, do yourself a favor and visit this museum!

Very well done for a "small" museum. I would have liked to see a larger gift shop! I am a dance teacher and found the museum a well kept secret in my profession. The exhibit of painted pointe shoes in the town of Saratoga Springs was fantastic!

Museum is a nice place to visit if you are a dance enthusiast. You can get through the entire museum in less than an hour. There are some interesting pieces but kids may get bored. There aren't that many displays that would keep younger children interested.

My 10 year old daughter is a dancer so this was a must stop! I do not know anything about dance but it sure made my kids happy. We got to see ballet classes practice!
