Enjoyed the wide variety of mediums here - sculpture, sketches, paintings, etc... Takes about an hour if you take your time. English descriptions on all the work. Might seem expensive but its very unique and doesn't take all day. One thing I figured out once we got inside was that many of the works were not Dali originals - they... More

Very cool exhibition. If you are into surrealism definitely check this out!! Go go Space Elephant!! Also it is very close to Sacre Coeur and a cool area of Paris (lots of cobblestone, creperies, bakeries, market goods)

Two things should be known about this museum. One: it's quite small; the entire collection can be seen in under an hour. Two: Dali's most famous works are not here; only sculptures of his famous works, done by others. There are also less well-known Dali paintings and other surrealist artists on exhibit as well.

Cosy little museum with lots of masterpieces. Lobster telephone included. I have seen 3 of them and still amused with it (including white one in Belem). In short nice place to hide from busy Montmartre streets.

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
