We visited museum in morning - it gets very crowded. Loved some of his figurative paintings The building is very interesting and unusual. Designed by Dali from a ruined theatre - so naturally some of it is bizarre. Worth a visit but don't expect much of his work to be easily understood.

Artists hold your breath! I do not like Dali. And I could have skipped the waste of time stopping in Figueres to spend more time somewhere else, like Cadaques. For the most part, my opinion is that he constructed crude, random, strange objects and images just to shock people. I did not feel anything. Just anxious to move on to... More

Dali left organized his impressive works of art in the house that he lived in Figueres, Spain. According to our guide, Dali left strict orders that there should not be a guide explaining the works and that one must use our own imagination. Well, its not so easy and a bit difficult to understand. The exhibition is perfectly set up... More

Yes, Dali is visually exciting and his museum is very interesting- but we found the crowds to be distracting. Also, it was a bit confusing to find your way through the various areas. I later learned that our tickets also included seeing the Dali jewels exhibit. It wasn't mentioned to us, but by then we were "done." I still encourage... More

Enter Dali's world of creativity and imagery -- you will not be disappointed. Indeed, you'll have fun as you explore both his principal museum and his Jewelry Museum, the latter of which will take your breath away. The Viatour day trip to Girona and Figueres gets you to the Dali Museums in Figueres. Overall, it's the most enjoyable, informative and... More

Without a guide the museum is not so entertaining since there is not enough info of the art inside. Just a few paintings have proper description about their origin. There are a few visually appealing installations, but we missed some more real Dalí art. Also, it was really crowded which was uncomfortable.

Can be done in a few hours. There does not appear to be a limit to the number of people allowed inside the attraction so maneuvering can be difficult. The extent of Dali's work is amazing and if you are a fan you have to go just to get a picture of the facility with eggs on top of the... More

The mans life is well represented here in his childhood home of Figures. The museum is a real look into his brilliance and love of art. 5/2015 was or second trip to Figures, and longest.

Really an excellent museum to visit. Especially the Jewellery section. Clean toilets available.Easy to reach by train. Lots of restaurants around for coffee, food etc., Go early because of the queues. There are lots of stairs!!!!!
