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.

Espace Dali was an unexpected treasure that we found on our recent trip to Paris. In the quaint Montmarte section, this exhibit of Dali's works of art are amazing and gives you a unique perspective into his art. The descriptions on many of the displays which are in English and French, give you an insight into the message Dali was... More

Dali's art was from a different world, and that makes it a good contrast to the other museums. The website shows a lot of art that was not at the museum. In fact there seemed to be an overabundance of the"melting clock" samples throughout the museum. One is impressive maybe two, but not six! I'm glad at we went, but... More

Included in the pairs pass we decided to investigate, not a large museum and not as much Dali as you'd expect but still a interesting and fun place to visit

I am a surrealist art fan and enjoy Dali but this museum was a miss for me. It was very small and included relatively few Dali pieces. About half of it consisted of other artists interpretations of his work and their pieces, some historical context and an interactive (you could draw on a section of the museum wall, sort of... More

Close to the Sacre Coeur and situauted in the artsy Montmartre, Espace Dali is in a beautiful location which is easy to access via the Metro. The exhibition area is roomy enough for easy browsing, yet remains intimate with a moderate amount of pieces on show. If you're looking for a nice stopover and a visit that won't take up... More

I thought I would give this little museum a try even though I am not a fan of surrealism. I enjoyed a few of Dali's pieces, specifically his melting time series and the skinny legged elephant. If nothing else, for the price of admission (7.50 Euro, senior rate), I learned more about Dali's work and know I still struggle to... More

After paying the 20 euros to get in I was sadly very disappointed with the exhibition. None of the well known pieces except the Lip Sofa. I would say more of an essence of Dali. I have seen better exhibitions elsewhere...sorry no worth the entrance fee.

I think there has been always an important gap between the art museums and public because of the seriousness and being too much professional. The Space Dali is not a museum and it is something in between which is necessary in the society.
