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).

I went there for my nephews wedding and it was beautiful. From the outside to the inside spotless and well manicured. A perfect spot to get married in.

If you really like dance, this museum is worth it. Otherwise, I recommend skipping it. What we liked best were film clips of dances from movies but you can see those on the internet.
