What a crazy mind.....

I thoroughly enjoyed the Dali exhibit in Paris. It is not overly large for the price of admission, however very interesting. I can't even imagine being in the mind of this man....

Just a block away from the throngs of Sacre Coeur is this gem of a museum. A must for all Dali enthusiasts. The collection contains paintings and sculptures. Allow at least a half hour to an hour. I've added some photos which will give more information than my description. My 19 year old daughter loved this place as did we... More

Ten years ago, my wife and I visited Paris on what, in retrospect, was a museum tour. She was previously not familiar with Dali's work and was taken. On our first return to Paris, the Dali museum was high on her list. On this visit, I was less impressed. The museum is very small. But if you are a fan... More

This museum may be small, but it's easy to spend a lot of time there. Although I came for the melted clock sculptures, there were all sorts of freaky sketches and prints I'd never seen before that I found really fascinating. I've been to a lot of galleries since I've been in Europe, but this to me was one of... More

It maybe seems to be more catchy than a real Dali musuem, the place is very well decorated and gives you a nice introduction to Dali's work. I loved the Easter theme of artist's paintings based on the Christ's pain

Great selections of Dali's works. There are bronzes of his famous fluid clocks as well as many other of his sculptures and drawings. The museum is not large, however very interesting in honoring Dali's works and legacy to the world of art.

It's not cheap and it is quite small but it is fantastic. Various paintings, drawings, scenes, sculptures and furniture, all with just the right amount of information to sustain the interest (of us and the kids!). Kids were reluctant to see another gallery but came out happy, enabling us to enjoy it too.

I'm definitely not knowledgeable about art, but I really enjoyed this museum. I had only been aware of some of Dali's most famous works and I definitely left this museum with a greater understanding of Dali's life and art. It's not an overwhelmingly huge space like the Louvre is. I spent maybe 2 hours here. There were several other visitors,... More

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

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.
