This museum contains a large collection of mostly Latin American art - paintings and sculptures - that ranges from sort of kitschy representational sculptures to abstract expressionist paintings and includes a Botero and several Dali sculptures echoing some of his most famous paintings. Among the paintings a certain emphasis seems to be placed on surrealism but otherwise there isn't much... More

Lots of modern art that was arranged so it was very personal...you could walk as close as you wanted to. You could interact with the statues in the garden. Very impressive...I want to see the rest of the Ralli museums now.

This place is a trip. The artwork is billed as surrealist, and includes a number of works by Salvador Dali, but the collection is mostly notable for being big and (visually) loud. The sculpture courtyard features too many bronzes for the space, and the paintings in the galleries lack any sort of subtlety. But the free museum ostensibly features Latin... More

My wife and I had the opportunity to visit the Ralli Museum on a rainy afternoon in January 2014. It was a great way to spend an hour-or-so enjoying paintings and sculpture primarily by Latin American artists, although some European artists are also represented. The facility is situated in a park-like setting in the Beverly Hills neighborhood of Punta del... More

If you want to see a great collection of Dali sculpture, make sure to visit the Ralli. There are paintings by South American artists as well, but the sculpture stole the show for me!

I was greatly suprised by this museum. I took pics with three cameras and did not schedule enough time to take a good hard look at everything. If you are into this type of art I cannot recommend this museum any higher.

A large collection of latin american paintings and sculptures, which also includes some European work like Dali and Miro. The building is a monument to "starcases", so beware elderly people or people with disabilities. Never seen so many stairs in one place. It is free, but find out in advance as the place has the weirdest hours of any museum... More

This art gallery supports South American artists both painters and sculpturers. Well laid out, with a good selection of Salvidor Dali sculptures. Entrance was free, and no donations were requested.
