This museum was very well done (probably because Dali did most of it himself). I'm not an art buff and I mostly wanted to go because I remember seeing the crazy dreamscape type paintings in history classes - the pg-13 stuff. What I wasn't expecting was the hallway of drawings with fantastical creatures and random phalluses ejaculating into their own... More

Having been a fan of Dali was fantastic to see such a large collection of his work through the ages. Icing on cake being the jewellery collection which I found breathtaking.Went on May Day so queue long, advisable to book in advance or go early. Bonus of Labour day was fantastic street market, live musicians & circus💕🍸👏

I love Dali so that made it a good place - difficult to see everything because when we went it was full of school parties and I got the impression that a lot of the young people were not that interested in Dali and that made it less enjoyable for me - we were jostled quite a bit when we... More

We were here on October 2nd in the morning, and initially the place wasn't too crowded. Then 2 tour buses pulled up and disgorged loads of Russian or Ukrainian tourists, and it became hard to move on the upper floors. The works span Dali's life and the collection is really interesting, but it became hard to see the works or... More

I stopped here because we were passing by the town and felt we should see it because I wasn't likely to be in this area again. My husband is the one who appreciated it more than me! Dali certainly had talent and fun with art. I would have liked to see the art moving; but not enough to put money... More

This is a five-star place suffering a lack of crowd control. As much as I dislike the sort of places that only let a certain number of people enter at a given time, they're desperately needed here. Like yesterday. It doesn't help that the hallways are narrow and there's no one way to go through the museum (which I'm cool... More

The sheer scale is what sticks in the memory. Most of the really famous stuff is actually in Madrid but this collection is valuable because of the sheer volume of material it covers. Get there really to avoid some of the numbers. Can't completely avoid them as there are a lot of group tours. Queues are quite short for individual... More

Had a really good time, some genuinely Incredible artwork. Spent most of the day there and was entertained the whole way around, and I'm not even into art myself its the missus!

.. by which I mean unusual but fun. I go to a lot of museums so I really like finding ones that are unique, and this one is. I was there in the morning and it was quite crowded, and my guide said it is even more crowded later in the day! I went as part of a day trip,... More

Everything that you read in Rough Guide but just unable to fully enjoy due to the throngs of fellow tourists pushing and shoving and standing in front of you to take photos. There appears to be no governing of the admission-merely a money spinning attraction unlike Port Lligat where you are given a time and the group size is maximum... More
