I visited here with my 6-yer-old son. We loved it both. There was just right amount to see for a small child (who has seen museums before) and different kind of artifacts shown up. The atmosphere was "Dalinian" and his works opened our eyes for his point of views. There was nothing interesting to buy from the museum shop, which... More

On previous trips to Paris my wife & I had toyed with a visit to this museum, showcasing the works (sketches, paintings & sculptures) of the Master of Surrealism, Salvador Dali; we were delighted that we finally took it in. Tucked away in Montmartre, near Place du Tertre, seek it out for something completely different; Dali was "out there" but... More

As two great art/museum fans living in Paris, my friend and I decided to go and see the street art exhibit at Espace Dali at Montmartre. What triggered us to see this exhibition in the first place was it's colorful poster ad displayed in almost every metro station in the city. After having visited this unbelievably disappointing exhibition I can... More

We stumbled upon this museum while walking around Sacre Coeur. The entry fee seemed a bit steep but it was worth it. Loved the detailed bilingual commentary that increased our appreciation. Would definitely recommend it.

I don't know what we were expecting, but seeing so many copyists was not one of them. As lovers of Dali, we enjoyed what they managed to have on display, but perhaps not for the price of entry at this level.

We been to Dali's village Figures and seen his museum earlier and more thoroughly. If you are in Paris for longer, and a fan of Dali's you should visit. You might get disappointed if you have seen the museum in Figures before. This exhibition is more of his sculpture works, commissioned arts, imitations of his original works. The Mae West... More

Firstly, let me say that I like Salvador Dali's paintings and sculptures and have a number of relevant books. This exhibition is a disgrace to his name and quite frankly a rip-off. There are great omissions, very few originals and far too many 'in the theme of' by other artists. We visited the same gallery 13 years ago: it was... More

Quite small and not comprehensive coverage of Dali works. Space taken up by artists who undertook related works, which are not really of interest. It was disappointing and overpriced - for 1.5 euros more you could visit the Louvre.

It's a small exhibition space and there's nothing wrong with that if the content is consistently high quality, but it's not... There are copies of originals; quite a few limited edition prints; lots of space on the walls filled by street artists, and then among it all a few gems. Informative descriptions of items are printed in too small a... More

The walk from Sacre Coeur, to this snug little museum is a pleasurable one. You will wind your way past a superb spot to get a photo of the Eiffel Tower before walking through a cluster of painters practicing their craft. I've read some reviews that say the exhibition pales in comparison to that of the museum in New York,... More
