I did not know what to expect, having seen Dalí's oils in other museums. I am not a huge fan of surrealism. It was so great to be surprised by the watercolor/ink paintings that were part of the exhibition. More "traditional" in style but with the distinctive perspective of the artist. The exhibition is small but I found it a... More

I thought the admission price was a bit steep for the tiny little museum that we ended up seeing, especially considering that most other museums in Paris are free for EU citizens under 25. It must clearly be privately owned, and the tags on the walls look a bit cheap. Still, I'm a big Dalí fan, so this was a... More

I cannot tell you how much I love this gallery! I just love Dali too much! It's set out so well with just enough info and the shop is lovely too :) We used the Paris Pass for free entry and I highly recommend the pass too! Even if you're not a Dali fan, you must go as there are... More

It was very nice have the chance of seeing some pieces of the very famous artist. The museum is a little bit hidden in Montmartre but it is worth it visiting it... The attraction was included on the Paris Pass card we had bought before going to Paris.

Not very big, but it has more sculptures than many other Dali-exhibitions I've been to. The idea of showing Dali together with street artists that are inspired by him was an interesting idea. I really liked this place, and so did our teenage daughter.

Truth be told, I have never heard of Dali before, and I thought I do not know any of his works. But since we were in the neighbourhood, we thought we should check it out. No regrets, really glad I went in. His works are really interesting, especially after reading the explanations. Makes you see things in different angles and... More

I enjoyed this museum, despite being very small. It wasn't expensive, and I really enjoyed all of the Alice in Wonderland-related material, which I hadn't recalled that he had done. Part of the museum was dedicated to other artists' tributes to Dali, fyi. Again, it is small., but if you are a fan, must see. Lots of the works you've... More

I didn't know much about Dali, so I went in because my friend loves him. And it was a surprise! You read the first little sign with information about his art and you just can't stop. The museum is small but we stood there for more than an hour. So worth it! I really recomend!

Dali never disappoints! A really nice, detailed description of his original works, and in addition you can admire paintings inspired by Salvador from other contemporary artists. In the end you can take a picture in a very Dali style and buy something from a gift shop. The museum is smaller than expected , but totally worth it for all the... More

Loved this museum. It is just off the Place de Tertre near the Sacre Coeur. Well worth a visit. Nothing to dislike unless you don't like Dali.

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.
