The Dali Museum in downtown St Petersburg FL where I live is a wonderful museum with the largest collection of Salvador Dali's work outside of Spain I think. The building itself is fascinating surrealistic design with a huge "bubble of glass" hugging the outside. Dali would've loved it. Inside you'll find his works of art, museum art store and café...

The Dali's architecture is very interesting with beautiful views of the waterfront. The artwork is rather limited (Spain has his best) with the Escher exhibit being repetitive and dull. Admission is overpriced ($24pp & $10 for parking) for the size of the facility. The garden & maze are pretty also, with lovely views. Nice for a one-time visit but I... More

If you are in St. Petersburg area, this is a definite must see. The M.C. Escher exhibit is through January 3, 2016. Have lunch at the cafe; food is very good. Stroll through the garden area. All of the people there are helpful and answer all of your questions. The audio tour is included in the price.

The Dali Museum is a masterpiece of engineering, construction, architecture and design which displays an incredible feast of the genius's paintings drawings and sketches, the largest collection of Dali's work ever assembled outside of his native Spain. Although I don't pretend to understand much of his work, I found it fascinating, absorbing and totally compelling. Moreover, studying each exhibit, gave... More

Go at 5 pm to 8 pm on Thursdays and the fee is only 10 bucks per. There is usually a complementary show to go wirh Dali's work. Grab a glass of wine on the patio and enjoy the marina view also

Dali has always been one of my favorite artists ... His imagination is outrageous ... but the mUesum shows you things about him I didn't even know

Very nice museum - good private collection. Unique venue and architecture. Overall very good experience. I would say that the ticket prices are too high. $24 per person for a small collection is too much really, but we had been looking forward to going for so long, we decided to go anyway. Some very well known paintings of Dali's here,... More

Really easy to get to with easy parking (although you have to pay) But what a place! Very impressive temple to Dali and what a collection. The building has a Dali feel to it with all its curves and boxes although of course it could have been weirder but then it would be competing. The exhibition is on the third... More

We spent an afternoon browsing through the Dali. We took the self guided headphones audio tour but occasionally came across the guided tour and paused to listen to the stories told by the tour guide of the eccentric artist. We strolled among his masterpieces and his madness with filled rooms of his original works. Outside you will also see the... More
