Salvador Dali, the master of surrealism in Paris!

Espace Dali...

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...

I really enjoyed seeing some of Dali's lesser-known works, especially the sculptures and the images for Alice in Wonderland. The price was a little high for the amount of art exhibited, but it was still fun and worth the money and the side trip.

Me and my wife visited Dali triangle ( Figueres, Cadaques, Pubol)in Spain , it is a small exhibition when you compare, but some different works you cannot find even in Spain.It is a must for art lovers, and Dali lovers . Specially the watches. If you like Dali, you can find an other small place in center of Bruges, Belgium.

Salvador Dali was in mind as a strange artist... Visiting this museum I understood why .. All his important creations were there. The Elephant, the Aphrodite .. a lot... Dali took lots of his themes from Greek mythology and it was obvious that he made very curious creations. It seems that his mind was confused and involved reality and imagination... More

The exhibit is located in Montmartre on a small side street. The exhibit is somewhat interesting but really pales in comparison to many other exhibits, especially the Florida museum. Some really funky pieces, but other than that it does nothing to compliment or display the genius and talent of Dali. Its also relatively expensive for what you see.. We only... More

I`ve been to other Dali Exhibits around the world, and I have to admit, this one had a very interesting layout. Located in a back alley not far from Place du Tertre, the gallery was a little hard to find, but we did locate it eventually. It is laid out in a basement setting, with the art set up in... More

My daughter is a big fan of Salvador Dali, so we had to go. Many paintings, sculptures and melting clocks (which he is famous for). If you like eccentric abstract art, this is the place to go. Small museum but it's all Dali. Wonderful works of art.

Signage to get there is a little obscure, but with a little strolling it is not difficult to find. It is not large and a bit stiff on the entry price. However the collection is very interesting with many sculptures, paintings and a few installations. The space is very pleasant with a good lighting and lay out of the works.... More

The entry fee and the cost of the audio guide is too high for this small Dali sculpture collection. Half the price and it'll be better value. That said there are some very interesting sculptures on display.

It's an interesting collection of Dali's sculptures, but the entry fee is a bit on the pricey side for what it is. The information with the pieces is very interesting though.

Staying in Montmartre

Neighborhood Profile
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.
