This really isn't a museum of Dali's work. It is work by people either close to or one step removed from Dali. None of his strong, surrealist work is here. Spend your time and money at other, legitimate museums in Paris, and look for Dali elsewhere.

Contrary to what you would expect there is not even a single unique original piece of Dali's work in the entire place. Only replicas of a handful of sculptures and some uninteresting lithographs.

I love art and was so looking forward to this but like others have said, it a rip off at E11.50. The display, lighting and information plaques are not at professional gallery level, being worn/ shabby. It's a small exhibition of minor works/ copies/ others' art and I was disappointed. Spend E9.50 on the excellent Montmatre Museum instead - only... More

Overall, found that it was a good exhibition, allowing an art novice to gain an understanding of Salvador Dali's work. Although the exhibition was mixed with work of other artists, each piece had a motivation explaining how the artist had bren influenced by Dali, which enhanced the educational experience.

This museum that is located in Montmartre contains statues, etchings, and paintings by Salvador Dali, who is the master of Surrealism. It also contains art by artists that were inspired by Salvador Dali. I found this art very intriguing. This museum is not covered by the Paris Museum Pass. It was interesting to get to see a lot of his... More

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.
