We really enjoyed this musuem. It is a bit pricey, $24 per person, but there are coupons in the local sightseeing magazines for a couple dollars off. The building is really beautiful. The audio tour or docent tour is a MUST. We had just thought his art was odd, but now understand much more about his life and the meaning... More

We love Dali, and were thrilled with the new space. Very open and light, it's a great experience architecturally even if you're not a fan. But the art is fantastic!!! Beautiful, and beautifully displayed. There really is something for everyone here.

My boyfriend wanted to go back upon our recent trip to St. Pete-one of our favorite places to escape to for a getaway. I faked enthusiasm because since we had been last year I didn't expect to see anything different. I was wrong. While there are pieces that are part of therir permanent collection, this time they were also featuring... More

We were very interested in going, but the price kept US away. We learned that, on Thursday nights, its 1/2 off. It looked rather slow outside, but when we stepped inside, WOW this place was hopping! We adored the gift shop, loved the food, and the bathrooms were SUPER clean. The exhibits were the star of the night! We had... More

A free tour by a knowledgeable and entertaining guide made the experience so much more worthwhile than it would have been had I wandered around and tried to pick things out on my own. I'd never been drawn to Dali -- now I'm a fan.

Are you familiar with Salvador Dali? How would you describe him and his art in two worlds? I would say that the art and Dali himself are weird, extremely attractive, and even scary because you can see how illusions can confuse you. I would recommend to anybody to check this museum and Dali art. The museum has good collection of... More

I am a new fan to this artist. His use of illusion in his paintings were just phenomenal! I also was able to have my picture taken with his method of overlays. I will have to upload these pictures very soon. Hope you are able to see all the different pictures within the picture. It is much harder than any... More

Even after years of viewing Dali artwork I cannot get tired of it. It is beautifully displayed here in this artistic building with a great location on the waters of St. Pete.

I don't love Dali's painting, but after our tour, I now understand the man better and can appreciate his art. It was worth the time to examine the paintings to see his different periods of style. He was a fasinating man.
