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

When I was younger I was captivated by Dali's paintings. I also absolutely love sculpture. When we went to this museum I didn't know it would be focused on Dali's sculptures but I am so glad it was - they were awesome. My 8 year old was captivated by the drawings of the states of Israel, noticing technique and imagery... More

A fantastic small museum dedicated to Dali. If you think you know Dali and have seen a lot of his paintings then this is the place to visit - it is not what you expect it is going to be. While it houses some of the usual suspects a lot of the works I had not come across before and... More

In a city full of museums, I enjoyed this one thoroughly. Even the walk and surrounding area was enjoyable. Just the right size, with great pieces, interesting shop. Went alone and spent the rest of the day telling my BF how he should have joined me. Definitely worth a visit.

My 9 year old daughter enjoyed looking at the art probably because it seemed very bizarre to her eyes. She took pictures with her camera of the things that appealed and the visit killed an hour in Montmartre. She was very curious about Dali's moustache and the lost wax process. Examples of how he created these works would have been... More

Just off Place du Tertre, l'Espace Dali brings together 300 sculptures and watercolours of the eccentric artist. True Dali is known for his paintings - and if that's what you're looking for they are NOT here. That said, many of the sculptures are based on them and you'll find the lobster and telephone, the lip-shaped couch, the snail, melting clocks... More

A small museum, with a varied collection of Dali's work. I think "strange" sums it up, but it is well laid out, and if your already keen on his work, worth a visit. For other people, maybe not...

The Self Guided Walking Tour of Montmartre brought us to the door of Espace Dali and the question do we go in or not? Madame was not convinced but went in based on the argument of his character as portrayed in the Woody Allen directed movie Midnight in Paris. Being Seniors the entry fee was discounted and proved to be... More

We are very fond of surrealism and fans of Dali. Wherever we go around the world we love to find places where this incredible artist have lived and created his masterpieces. In the heart of Montmartre there is this secret gem where you can experience the creativity of this legendary painter and sculptur. It is the only permanent exhibition in... More
