I don't know what we were expecting, but seeing so many copyists was not one of them. As lovers of Dali, we enjoyed what they managed to have on display, but perhaps not for the price of entry at this level.

We been to Dali's village Figures and seen his museum earlier and more thoroughly. If you are in Paris for longer, and a fan of Dali's you should visit. You might get disappointed if you have seen the museum in Figures before. This exhibition is more of his sculpture works, commissioned arts, imitations of his original works. The Mae West... More

Firstly, let me say that I like Salvador Dali's paintings and sculptures and have a number of relevant books. This exhibition is a disgrace to his name and quite frankly a rip-off. There are great omissions, very few originals and far too many 'in the theme of' by other artists. We visited the same gallery 13 years ago: it was... More

Quite small and not comprehensive coverage of Dali works. Space taken up by artists who undertook related works, which are not really of interest. It was disappointing and overpriced - for 1.5 euros more you could visit the Louvre.

It's a small exhibition space and there's nothing wrong with that if the content is consistently high quality, but it's not... There are copies of originals; quite a few limited edition prints; lots of space on the walls filled by street artists, and then among it all a few gems. Informative descriptions of items are printed in too small a... More

The walk from Sacre Coeur, to this snug little museum is a pleasurable one. You will wind your way past a superb spot to get a photo of the Eiffel Tower before walking through a cluster of painters practicing their craft. I've read some reviews that say the exhibition pales in comparison to that of the museum in New York,... More

Enjoyed the wide variety of mediums here - sculpture, sketches, paintings, etc... Takes about an hour if you take your time. English descriptions on all the work. Might seem expensive but its very unique and doesn't take all day. One thing I figured out once we got inside was that many of the works were not Dali originals - they... More

Very cool exhibition. If you are into surrealism definitely check this out!! Go go Space Elephant!! Also it is very close to Sacre Coeur and a cool area of Paris (lots of cobblestone, creperies, bakeries, market goods)

Two things should be known about this museum. One: it's quite small; the entire collection can be seen in under an hour. Two: Dali's most famous works are not here; only sculptures of his famous works, done by others. There are also less well-known Dali paintings and other surrealist artists on exhibit as well.

Cosy little museum with lots of masterpieces. Lobster telephone included. I have seen 3 of them and still amused with it (including white one in Belem). In short nice place to hide from busy Montmartre streets.
