I wrote a paper in college on Dali. But this was an experience, total cost was not cheap with parking ,but goes to the arts. The building is art itself. The spiral staircase in the center of building, highlight. The octogan windows and raw unfinished concrete, urban, industrial feel. I work construction, looking from this view, awe struck but the.artitecture,... More

Good place to visit if the weather is poor. A bit pricey at $24 per adult admission with little chance of getting a coffee at the small food counter. The free use of the audio commentary system is great but the head sets are passed from person to person without any cleaning involved a little too unhygienic for me.

Pay the $5 and get the headset. It is more than worth it. Really great gift shop. Got all my family souvenirs from here.

We visited this museum in May of 2014. The exterior of the building is a modern eye-catching asset to the St. Petersburg area. The windows have a geodesic-like effect with grasshopper eye-like construction. Outside the building lies a waterway and beautiful sky as a backdrop. As for the gallery and contents, please take the guided tour as you will become... More

I love this place. On a recent visit we were able to attend the Dali/Picasso exhibit. The exhibit showed 80 paintings, drawings, etc, side by side. It was so creative and interesting to see these two greats and how they viewed the world. Dali is a very strange painter but the museum shows his creative side and I appreciate that!... More

On Thursday between 5 and 8 pm, the cost is $10 per person rather than the normal $25 odd We visited the old Dali museum Building years ago and this building is fantastic. Well done You gotta go just to see Dali's artwork

Great museum and very well run. We got a special treat with the addition of Picasso exhibit there so we could comprehend the influence each had the other. The staff was knowledgeable and very helpful with all needs and questions. I would go back next trip and that says a lot from me.

This wonderful art museum just happened to be showing Picasso works along side Dali's when we visited. The galleries did a great job of tracing Dali's progression from cubism, to surrealism, to his later grand epic murals that fill a wall. Seeing originals of his vivid surrealist works would have been enough for me. But his later murals with religious... More

Always loved Dali, but have a whole new level of respect and awe for his genius after a visit to the museum. This should be a must see for anyone with any interest in art! The after dark Thursday's make it affordable, but worth full admission for sure!
