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...

This is just a lovely museum. The works by Dali really show off all of his many artistic talents - sculpture, painting, furniture design! A lot of whimsical pieces and unbelievable art. We sort of stumbled upon this while walking the neighborhood. We will come back every time we're in Paris in the future. And the restaurants around the museum... More

Not being very objective since Dali is one of my favorite painter. But this place has something very specific, being more like a little gallery in the heart of the 18th arrondissement of Paris. It is definitely a place to stop by if you ever have the chance to visit Paris.

I visited it for the first time when the exhibition was about street art in connection with Dali. Loved it, it was dali-esque. And don't miss the pictures on the stairs up just before the exit : hilarious

I found it very entertaining and informative. You can even buy Dali pieces. If in Paris, don't miss it! There are some restaurants and cocktail bars I'd recommend, but unfortunately I forgot their names...:( go to Paris and get lost in the bohem summer night or the real French autumn!:)

Overpriced entry fee for the extent of the collection, but nevertheless a not so disappointing visit. Interesting gift shop and you're out on your way, many Euros lighter but ready to continue enjoying this wonderful neighborhood in Paris. As you walk into the wonderful nearby cafe, you realize this was the first paid Paris venue you didn't care to take... More

Now one of Spains favoured sons has never been known for his boring, sane attitude to life. On a visit to Barcelona, we stood in the Placa Reial outside the taxidermists where he once famously asked to have 200 ants stuffed. It might have been 2000. But you get my point. After visiting the E'space Dali Museum and seeing his... More

I've liked Dalí ever since I visited his museum in Figueras when I was a kid. In hindsight, this "Espace" wasn't really worth the ticket price (which we bought from a very grumpy employee, really unpleasant). Rather small space, not a lot of works displayed, we were done in half an hour. They seem to want to direct the visitors... More

This small but engrossing Dali Museum is at Montmatre. It has a great range of Dali sculptures, paintings, drawings & 'furniture'. Well worth a visit.

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.
