Small but really well presented and interesting exhibition. This is the first time I visit a museum dedicated to the Catalan master but the variety of his surrealist work holds you to every of the 300 scultures and paintings. The uniqueness of his work can be summarised partly by his own quote "The secret of my influence has always been... More

Even it is a small museum, the variety of Dalí´s work makes this place really special. Many sculptures and some paintings, with a lot of information about Dali´s work. I´ve been in many Dalí museums but even this is the smallest collection I´ve seen, it´s one of my favourites. If you are in Paris, you should go and visit it.

The Espace Dalí is a permanent exhibition in France devoted to Salvador Dalí and more particularly to his sculptures and engravings. The museum, near the Place du Tertre in Montmartre, has around 300 original artworks. It is said that the Espace Dalí is France's biggest collection of Dalinian sculptures (and paintings). The collection reveals three-dimensional realizations of his known surrealistic... More

Having never been exposed to Dali's work before, I was shocked, surprised and had fun at the museum. It didn't seem like a lot of hammering of information, yet I learnt quite a bit. Go if you get the time. Seemed a little expensive, given that it costs as much as visiting the Louvre, which has a much much much... More

Rip off really. Not one original work just bunches of limited editions(allegedly)many of which were reproductions done many years after the original and Dali was just into printing money basically. There's even a salesroom where you can buy 'Limited edition' prints and a surprisingly tacky gift shop

When I was younger I was captivated by Dali's paintings. I also absolutely love sculpture. When we went to this museum I didn't know it would be focused on Dali's sculptures but I am so glad it was - they were awesome. My 8 year old was captivated by the drawings of the states of Israel, noticing technique and imagery... More

A fantastic small museum dedicated to Dali. If you think you know Dali and have seen a lot of his paintings then this is the place to visit - it is not what you expect it is going to be. While it houses some of the usual suspects a lot of the works I had not come across before and... More

In a city full of museums, I enjoyed this one thoroughly. Even the walk and surrounding area was enjoyable. Just the right size, with great pieces, interesting shop. Went alone and spent the rest of the day telling my BF how he should have joined me. Definitely worth a visit.

My 9 year old daughter enjoyed looking at the art probably because it seemed very bizarre to her eyes. She took pictures with her camera of the things that appealed and the visit killed an hour in Montmartre. She was very curious about Dali's moustache and the lost wax process. Examples of how he created these works would have been... More
