The Dali is located close to a beautiful section of St Pete worth exploring in and of itself. The museum's collection is relatively small but very engaging. You will be lured in to really look at the work and appreciate the genius that Dali was. The famous work is not here, but that doesn't matter- some of his late in... More

This is a fantastically entertaining museum. To see the development of the art of Dali in such a pleasant setting was most enjoyable. The iphone tour (with admission) was informative and entertaining. The live docent tours were a little disturbing: they got in the way. The museum is nice to get around as are the grounds. It's a manageable tour.... More

If you only have time to visit one museum in the Tampa Bay area, the Dali is the museum to choose. Not only are the collections fabulous, but also the actual museum is a marvel. Don't forget to tour the gardens and check out the museum from the outside if you did not do so upon arriving. The layout is... More

A really wonderful place. Nicely laid out. The trip was much enhanced by a knowledgeable and personable guide. The Warhol exhibition was competent but outshone by Dalis brilliance.

I have always loved Dali's work and I was floored when I discovered St. Petersburg has this museum of all places! The collection is huge and some of the works I have never seen before, not even in any of my books. Really enjoyed it and the gift shop was wonderful. I hope to visit again next time I'm in... More

When you arrive you are greeted by this magnificent building that is a piece of art itself. Resist the gift shop as you walk in because as soon as you are in the exhibition hall you will discover some never seen Dali's that are fantastic.The audio tour is a great way to get more details on his works.The gift shop...

Comparable in quality to the museum near Barcelona, this is well worth half a day of your time. The early works are especially intersting. Take one of the free docent tours.

This museum has it all. Easily accessible, meaning good parking, friendly docents, frequent guided tours, a wealth of art, a small very limited cafe (you can take your food/beverages outside to the garden) and a very nice gift shop. My 17 year old nephew thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon, as did I.
