So much more than melting clocks! I didn't know a lot about Dali before my visit but I learned a lot. This is a really great museum! I especially enjoyed the Dali/Picasso special exhibit. Initially I thought the price was a little high but it was worth every cent. It was a great way to spens four hours. The building... More

Excellent audio tours , but our docent guided tour was phenomenal. Not every will be as thorough as ours. Our guide took a full hour with interesting explanations and hidden details, but saw the next one finished in 35 minutes. The Picasso / Dali special exhibit would have worth the trip. But the main Dali exhibit was quite inclusive, with... More

I had never been to the museum before and was delighted to have been able to see the special exhibit. If you aren't able to see it in person, consider ordering the exhibit catalog. The curators brilliantly displayed works of the two artists in a fashion that permitted comparison and contrast in appropriate historical context. Series of sketches were also... More

A small museum, but in a nicely designed building on the bay. Great docent tours, and of course Dali's Art.

I know it sounds weird or funny but I hadn’t seen anything like this ever in my life. This really opened a whole new world of art for me. I’m not an emotional person, especially when it comes to art, but this really moved me. The people I was with really didn’t get into it and couldn’t look past the... More

i must start by saying that Dali has never been a favourite of mine but the exhibition certainly opened my eyes to his talent. Seeing such a large body of his work helps to make it all make sense. The guided tours added to the appreciation and the audio tours also helped to fill in some gaps. The special exhibition... More

Fantastic collection of Dali's masterpieces, the largest in the world. A lot of enormous masterpieces I didn't even know existed. Make sure you take a guided tour, since Dali's painting has so many hidden features and stories behind them that you simply cannot appreciate the paintings fully without a one of the museum's fantastic guides. The building's architecture is worth... More

The St. Petersburg Dali Museum is filled with Dali works,housed in a one of a kind architectural marvel. it replaces the old museum which was also very good. The exhibits are useful, contain works by Dali that I have never seen before, and is very well curated. If you have the patience to listen to all of the item descriptions... More
