Everything was brilliant. Directions, parking, Architecture, exhibits, knowledgeable Staff guides, Museum Shop. Tremendous value. Terrific experience that DID broaden my mind and can now view and appreciate Dali with much understanding. Totally recommend

Am told that outside of Spain, this is the place to go for Dali works. Only the third floor is the actual museum but still very much worth while visiting if you like surrealistic works. Get coupons for discount and highly recommend ear phones for explanation of some of the works.

This was probably my 5th visit to this museum and I am in love with it. It is an art museum done right. The audio guides were helpful as was the docent tour. A special exhibit allowed visitors to have their photo taken and then projected on the wall in a pixelated version like Dali's "Lincoln in Dalivision". The galleries... More

The Dali, as they call it in St. Petersburg, was one of the highlights of our visit to St. Petersburg. Dali was an amazing artist, a bit on the strange side, but amazing nonetheless. His work is very detailed and many ideas are going on at the same time in all of his works. Please go, you will not be... More

Even if you are not a Dali fan, seeing the building itself is worth the price of admission. Great collection of art, super museum store. Thursday evenings admission is half price, making it even better.

I have always enjoyed the works at the Dali Museum (visited in the 90s and again in 2000-something). This new location is gorgeous. It really gives the works the home they deserve.

We decided to come here during our vacation as a reprieve from the heat and because my boyfriend and I love art and art history; we were not disappointed. The works range from early to late and from small to gargantuan in size. There's always so much detail and little easter eggs in Dali's work that viewing each painting is... More

It is a pretty extensive place and I highly recommend the guided tours as they do a great job at highlighting the things we might not see (patterns, hidden illustrations and meanings) if on our own. The main gallery where the paintings a story high was really a delight!

The museum is a one of a kind museum! Dali was a super interesting person with many strange thoughts and desires! He incorporates all of them into his painting. Our curator was fantastic. Not only was she knowledgeable, but incorporated use of other props to better explain his works. The tour is well work the time bc it will help... More

The exhibit is small, but the grounds and building are lovely. The gift shop has many unique items. The café has a very Spanish menu - so beware if that's not your thing and you are planning to eat on site.
