    Great museum that covers all the great horses in the history of racing. Very cool Hall of Fame presentation. Nice gift shop. Interactive displays.

    Nice weekend trip to Saratoga while dropping off child to near by college for the upcoming semester. Broadway has nice shops and restaurants. We explored the history and heritage of Saratoga. Very interesting indeed. We went to the Saratoga Heritage Area Visitor Center and Nancy P was extremely helpful in assisting us and detailing the history of the area and good sites to visit. Nancy P was also very nice and pleasant to converse with.

    The history of Saratoga is the natural springs the town is known for. Bottling the water was a big industry back in the day, and the bottling plant is a huge historic building in the centre of The Saratoga Spa State Park. While the bottling is no longer taking place, the bottling plant has been given new life as an Automobile museum.
    The Automobile museum preserves and exhibits autombiles and related artefacts. The history of the automobile, and the role of it in New York state.
    While we were there, there was a special exhibit – “Bond in Motion” – a collection of automobiles and other vehicles that were used and featured in James Bond movies.
    The Aston Martins, the submarine, motorcycles, etc – all featured in 007 movies through the decades.
    The museum will appeal to the gear head and anyone while loves cars. The Bond exhibit is a temporary exhibit, and may not be there for long – but it the museum has plenty to engage visitors.
    The cost of the museum was about $20USD, which at first, we were a little surprised by but the museum is well worth it.
    It is not a huge museum, and would be easy to do the whole thing in about an hour.
    There is parking on site.

    I enjoyed the exhibits at the museum. I especially loved the piece that had a wall of paper Roses. I loved the simplicity and beauty of it. It sparked me into believing I can decorate my walls beautiful without the traditional pictures. The exhibit on the Mezzanine is a must see. At first I thought it was just a sitting area but then you will notice how common buckets can be made artistic plant holders. The chairs were also beautiful woven. My visit was definitely an inspiring way to spend a winter's Sunday.

    The museum hosts a very comprehensive range of exhibits spanning the countries history of military enagagements and does an excellent job of summarizing the broadstrokes of American military conflicts while also focusing on New York's role in such conflicts. One could dedicate an entire visit to a particular section of the museum with plenty more to return to see. There are helpful guides available to answer questions and admission is free.

    I thought the museum was great. I loved seeing who were leading horses and jockeys were back in the day. It was very knowledgeable.

    Nice local art. Has relaxed camps for kids during the summer, but more for fun verses learning techniques.

    Many handcrafted and unique items. A fun store to peruse and you will find interesting items as well as the usual souvenirs. Horse pictures. All range of prices.

    Enjoyed this shop very much. I don't always have time to linger in places like this, but I was on a stress free birthday weekend, and did not have anything else to do. You need that to stop and appreciate art.

    Took grandchild here on a rainy day and was impressed how much she enjoyed it. Hardest part was persuading her to leave. Staff was friendly, facilities were clean and parking easy. So much to keep kids occupied and having fun. Will be going back again.
