Create an itinerary including The Dali Museum
For a glimpse at the creative process of a master of Surrealism, visit The Dali Museum. Here you'll see the largest collection of Salvador Dali's works outside Europe. The museum contains works from the private collection of Albert and Eleanor Morse, Dali's patrons and friends for over four decades. The collection includes 96 oil paintings, 100 watercolors and drawings, and over 1,000 graphics, photographs, and sculptures. Pay special attention to the seven works considered Dali's masterpieces, including a metaphorical representation of Christopher Columbus' discovery of America, which took nearly four years to complete. For a taste of traditional Spanish fare, stop by the on-site restaurant, named after Dali's wife Gala.

  • This is a must see. The museum is so original and the Dali works and information are spectacular! Plus you can enjoy something from the cafe out in the garden. Really beautiful.

  • The exhibit was fabulous! All the Dali work was incredible, including the movie. My boys enjoyed all of it, but the 7 year old lived the maze. The 9 year old said , " This was much more fun than I expected. " The staff was SO amazing! I cannot even begin to thank them for being so kid friendly and helpful! The staff really helped put this review at 5 stars!
  • Of course I loved the paintings and the Lee Miller exhibit . I suggest an introductory video of Dali's biography somewhere LARGE and VISIBLE to everyone entering. Also with a printed guide map of the work following the film. This way, all visitors could connect the artist and the different time era to the paintings inside. And have better flow movement. The tour is short, and the guide is lost with the crowd, and so is the important explanations. This Museum is too valuable to just let people look at the art without been able to guide them properly through the stages. There are also voice recordings that could be placed in each section, for a better appreciation of the painting. This is a genius artist, his work should be better understood.
