I am not a fan of Dali's work but when my sister and niece were visiting they asked to go there on route to Barcelona. Figueres is just over the border from France on the Mediterranean side of the Pyrenees and easily accessible from the autopista.There is a big multistory car park next door. I had made up my mind...

This museum is fun, but battling the crowds is not fun. I much prefer the Dali museum in Florida. Also, there are no audio guides, and some of the works are baffling, even to Dali fans. We eventually bought a book, small enough to carry around in their gift shop and that did help a bit. I don't think it's... More

A must see for Dali fans. Thoroughly enjoyable day out. We booked this as an excursion through Thomson & were treated well by the excursion company.

This was my first stop on the Dali trail. The museum itself is super and interactive (thus, the "theater" in its name). However, there are no audio guides and so it's easy to miss hidden things. I was very lucky to be standing near a group that had hired an outstanding English guide. I eavesdropped now and then and the... More

sad that we had to rush in the end - good museum but the most crowded i have ever seen - the "big" works of dali aren't there, but is certainly worth the visit

If you are visiting the region, make sure to find time to visit this surprising museum. Dalí is not everybody's cup of tea, but this museum will probably make you get a more balanced opinión on his art. It covers the different phases of his artistic evolution, and also offers curious installations and mixed art forms, which adds to the... More

We took a side trip from Barcelona to Figueres just to see this museum. Dali Museum is the number #1 reason tourists flock to Figueres. I kid you not, "flock" is the right word. It gets extremely crowded. A lot of organized tours are bussed in, and being a relatively small building, it is very difficult to make your way... More

The setting is an old theater, and the museum planners use the space efficiently. Dali's work is amazing, from portraits that look like photographs to stereography to jewelry to sculpture. All the famous melted clocks are here, and the various phases of his work are clearly illustrated with large numbers of his work. In order to understand all the symbology... More

Had a wonderful visit in this lovely museum, the atrium with its own sculptures and planting, the theater, and the galleries on (I think ) three floors were all wonderful. An additional treat is the "Masterpiece Room" housing pieces from Dali's collection including some dutch masters and a Bouegereau. We had two hours (including visiting the jewelry museum next door...

I was in a vacantion with my wife at Lloret de Mar (Costa Brava, Spain) and we visited this theatre museum in Figueres (buses from hour to hour from and to, 20 euros/pers). This is a place you do not have to miss if you are at Costa Brava. It was amaizing , interesting and, why not, educational. Salvador Dali... More
