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

I thought the admission price was a bit steep for the tiny little museum that we ended up seeing, especially considering that most other museums in Paris are free for EU citizens under 25. It must clearly be privately owned, and the tags on the walls look a bit cheap. Still, I'm a big Dalí fan, so this was a... More

I cannot tell you how much I love this gallery! I just love Dali too much! It's set out so well with just enough info and the shop is lovely too :) We used the Paris Pass for free entry and I highly recommend the pass too! Even if you're not a Dali fan, you must go as there are... More

It was very nice have the chance of seeing some pieces of the very famous artist. The museum is a little bit hidden in Montmartre but it is worth it visiting it... The attraction was included on the Paris Pass card we had bought before going to Paris.

Not very big, but it has more sculptures than many other Dali-exhibitions I've been to. The idea of showing Dali together with street artists that are inspired by him was an interesting idea. I really liked this place, and so did our teenage daughter.

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.
