I recently visited the Tang Museum while I was on a date before dinner. It was actually a lot of fun and had some really unique art. It was kind of small but it is part of Skidmore College and overall very cool. I will definitely be checking more out at Tang!

A charming place to visit while touring Skidmore College. The gift shop has some delightful jewelry. Would like to see all of the rotating exhibits!

This small museum is a delight. The building itself is worth seeing from both the outside and the inside and the exhibits of art by students, faculty, and others are interesting and worth seeing. The museum also has a small gift shop with some excellent crafts and gifts. My wife found a beautiful pair of handcrafted earrings.

The Tang Museum is very easy to get to (just keep going down Broadway) and there is plenty of free parking. There are several galleries with rotating exhibits. We visited on a Saturday and there were plenty of knowledgeable staff around the exhibits. We spent about an hour walking around. It felt like they could have fit more into the... More

The museum is a real plus for the college which is already well known for its studio arts program. Lots of space for different types of creativity.

LARGE presentation of 30 years work -- some placed very high up, so not able to see detail. Also, no catalog of the exhibition itself (and only 2 books about her). Otherwise, terrific display. But not widely advertised in Saratoga storefronts (a pity)

How can you go wrong with a modern art museum? Bold and challenging art hangs and stands in this beautiful little museum. A great and cheap (free) side trip when you are visting Saratoga Springs!

This museum is on the Skidmore College campus (in a park-like setting, the campus itself has charming walking paths). The museum showcases art of their very talented students and teachers. But the big deal is the important shows of working artists that often move from here to Manhattan.
