Salvador Dali, the master of surrealism in Paris! Espace Dali, located in the heart of the famous artists' village, Montmartre, exhibits the largest collection of artworks by Salvador Dali in France. Dali as you have never seen before! The collection is the fruit of the emblematic surrealist artist's extravagant inspiration: theatrical sculptures, erotic, dreamlike or irresistibly humorous engravings, poetic objects and furniture, are all part of the phantasmagorical universe of the inventor of soft watches. The multiple facets of the Catalan Master 3D Surrealism Thanks to Dali, everything can be transformed by the magic of dreams: the Space Elephant with spindly legs seems to defy gravity, a watch melts from a branch, a snail spreads its wings and Venus has drawers. Stories and wonders Dali had an encyclopedic culture and was fascinated by major themes from literature, mythology and religion. He used many different techniques to illustrate universal texts: Alice in Wonderland, Romeo and Juliet, Don Quixote, The Bible... As well as more personal works, such as Moses and Monotheism or The Alchemy of the Philosophers. Each book is an art object. Sculptures, drawings, water colors, engravings, lithographs, Espace Dali invites us to explore the main themes of his work: dreams, mythology, sensuality...

We enjoyed this museum and it was reasonably priced despite being a modest sized collection. What made it work it was of course the range of works by the great master, though be warned it more focuses on his sculpture, prints and works in assorted media rather than painting. The space itself felt a bit haphazard and this detracted from... More

This underground museum is slightly hard to find (use Google Maps and hope it works...) but it's very rewarding if you like Dali's work. You will get good insights inside his personality and POV as an artist, too.

This two-story space is devoted solely to Dali. If you love his melting clocks, this is the place to be as you will see several versions as well as the Space Elephant all in bronze. the famous lip sofa. Very easy to find Anvers (metro 2) or Abbesses (metro 12) at Place du Tertre. Nearby is the Petit Train de... More

I always admired Dali's art. And we came upon the museum by accident (yay!). I'm glad we visited it. There are sculptures, paintings, drawings, ... You should really go have a look when you're in the area.

It's a hike getting here but is worth it. Quite a lot of pieces exhibited and it showed the breadth of Dali's work. Highly recommend. Plus it's not as busy and crowded as the other attractions in paris

A different take on Dali with quite a few large sculptures and many prints of drawings. Worth a look if you are a Dali fan. Descriptions of works are also in English.

This was my first Dali museum visit. And it was perfect. It's two minutes walk from the Place du Tertre. It features most of his very famous works - the Space Elephant, Alice in Wonderland, a couple of versions of the Melting Time, Venus Giraffe and so on. There is a video that keeps playing on showing Dali and his... More

If you go to Montmartre (and you go to Montmartre), worth the visit. For those who enjoy the works of Salvador Dalí is a good experience. The exhibition brings reinterpretations of artist´works, so it's a "creative journey".

Staying in Montmartre

Neighborhood Profile
Montmartre
Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colors, and styles which changes from one street to another. Ride the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy features shops not intended for young audiences, while residences are scattered to the north and east. The diverse population includes a large part from the Arab-speaking world, Africa, and Turkey. It’s a corner of Paris full of life and dynamism with charms that can’t be found anywhere else.
