Close to the Sacre Coeur and situauted in the artsy Montmartre, Espace Dali is in a beautiful location which is easy to access via the Metro. The exhibition area is roomy enough for easy browsing, yet remains intimate with a moderate amount of pieces on show. If you're looking for a nice stopover and a visit that won't take up... More

I thought I would give this little museum a try even though I am not a fan of surrealism. I enjoyed a few of Dali's pieces, specifically his melting time series and the skinny legged elephant. If nothing else, for the price of admission (7.50 Euro, senior rate), I learned more about Dali's work and know I still struggle to... More

After paying the 20 euros to get in I was sadly very disappointed with the exhibition. None of the well known pieces except the Lip Sofa. I would say more of an essence of Dali. I have seen better exhibitions elsewhere...sorry no worth the entrance fee.

I think there has been always an important gap between the art museums and public because of the seriousness and being too much professional. The Space Dali is not a museum and it is something in between which is necessary in the society.

This small museum was on our to do list for our paris visit and it was worth it! We trecked up to montmartre to discover this jewel tucked in the top of the hill. So much dali; paintings and sculpture! It was awesome to come face to face with these works we love.

A visit to Paris should include Montmartre - really one day is not enough as there is so much to see, All in a wonderful atmosphere. The breathtaking view of Paris from the hill, the Sacre Coeur Cathedral street artists,musicians, glorious galleries and restaurants, cobbled streets, the funicular ride to the top I could go on and on ....but a...

in fact there are no originals here, but they succeeded in showing in brief paintings, sculptures and other pieces of this eccentric artist!!

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.

Thank you for your feedback. Espace Dali is exhibiting only original and authenticated artworks from Salvador Dali since 1991, but it’s not claiming to have an exhaustive collection covering different aspects of the artist. You’ve visited our temporary exhibition, whose theme is precisely an homage to Salvador Dali by other artists, hence the numerous ‘in the theme of’ artworks. More

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
