Saratoga had a lot of fun activities but this one could be at the bottom of the list for a desperate rainy day. Agree with another reviewer, so much potential but to call this the National Museum of Dance is very misleading and disappointing

This is a fun place for adults and children alike. It has dance history, making of pointe shoes, who started major dance companies, and a room filled with costumes and shoes for children to dress-up and see themselves on a stage (small).
