Salvador Dali, the master of surrealism in Paris! Espace Dali, located in the heart of the famous artists' village, Montmartre, exhibits the largest collection of artworks by Salvador Dali in France. Dali as you have never seen before! The collection is the fruit of the emblematic surrealist artist's extravagant inspiration: theatrical sculptures, erotic, dreamlike or irresistibly humorous engravings, poetic objects and furniture, are all part of the phantasmagorical universe of the inventor of soft watches. The multiple facets of the Catalan Master 3D Surrealism Thanks to Dali, everything can be transformed by the magic of dreams: the Space Elephant with spindly legs seems to defy gravity, a watch melts from a branch, a snail spreads its wings and Venus has drawers. Stories and wonders Dali had an encyclopedic culture and was fascinated by major themes from literature, mythology and religion. He used many different techniques to illustrate universal texts: Alice in Wonderland, Romeo and Juliet, Don Quixote, The Bible... As well as more personal works, such as Moses and Monotheism or The Alchemy of the Philosophers. Each book is an art object. Sculptures, drawings, water colors, engravings, lithographs, Espace Dali invites us to explore the main themes of his work: dreams, mythology, sensuality...

This was my first Dali museum visit. And it was perfect. It's two minutes walk from the Place du Tertre. It features most of his very famous works - the Space Elephant, Alice in Wonderland, a couple of versions of the Melting Time, Venus Giraffe and so on. There is a video that keeps playing on showing Dali and his... More

If you go to Montmartre (and you go to Montmartre), worth the visit. For those who enjoy the works of Salvador Dalí is a good experience. The exhibition brings reinterpretations of artist´works, so it's a "creative journey".

This space is using Dali's power of attraction to lure visitors with often poor presentation of the artwork and copies of sculptures. But they have opened a very large shop!!! This is a tourist trap.

Maybe I just don't get it. I've seen other larger Dali museums and I didn't want to put my mind through that, but this one is pretty small and easy to take in. Located on Montmartre hill just off the touristy art square Place du Tertre and near a bunch of restaurants. At 11.50€, it was a bit pricey for... More

This small museum possess a very nice collection of Dali's works. The place has unique atmosphere! Everyone who is fascinated by the surrealism will be charmed. The design of the rooms is perfectly fitted with the exhibited art-works of the painter. The whole filling is something unreal. Very worthy place!

This museum not only provides an opportunity to see some of his work, mostly sculptures and drawings, but gave an insight into the man. Even if you are not a Dali enthusiast, it is worth visiting this small but very pleasant and informative space.

Took a side route upto Montmartre and stopped at Espace Dali. What they lack (oils by the master) they make up in sculpture and sets of prints. The commentary gave a very good, if not excellent, overview of his thoughts behind his works.

Staying in Montmartre

Neighborhood Profile
Montmartre
Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colors, and styles which changes from one street to another. Ride the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy features shops not intended for young audiences, while residences are scattered to the north and east. The diverse population includes a large part from the Arab-speaking world, Africa, and Turkey. It’s a corner of Paris full of life and dynamism with charms that can’t be found anywhere else.
