The building itself is awesome. (Find a coupon in local magazines because it can save you money! ) We joined a docent tour. She wasn't the most dynamic speaker but certainly told a lot about Dali I never knew. He's not one of my favorites but I came away with more respect for what he did. The one painting you... More

New Dali Museum is world class in design along with outstanding dedicated presentation of Dali's Surrealism and evolution from impressionist beginnings. Museum allows huge optical illusions to be seen. Building is modernistic and sculpture like in style. Fun for older children and folks of all ages. Much to be seen requiring several hours to look and relook. Much to smile... More

I love the very late printings. There is so much detail you can't possibly see on a computer screen. Plan for a 2 hour visit and enjoy the guided tour or headsets. To bad you can't take photos.

This was close to St. Petes beach and worth taking a day away from the sun to explore Art. They have a nice collection of Salvador Dali paintings. The building houses this collection well and incorporates its own "optical illusion" into the mix. It isn't big, and there is a cost to admission (be sure and as for senior discount).... More

Incredible!!! St. Petersburg is so fortunate to have the second largest collection in the world of this maestro's art. Surrealism to the max with a great evolution of Dali's work from his early Impressionism days to his leadership in Surrealism. And, the attention to detail is amazing - be sure to rent the headphones in any language (I did it... More

It's the craziness that ensues a crazy mans mind, and it was well worth seeing. I was happy to attend the museum, I wish they had more exhibits going on but I also really liked the labyrinth outside and how beautifully done the graden was as well as even the area and building of the museum. Definitely worth a visit,... More

We decided to visit The Dali Museum spur-of-the-moment. Having heard many good things about the museum, my mother and I were not expecting to love it as much as we did because our prior knowledge of Dali was limited only to his more surreal works. While I am sure we would have enjoyed the collection if we toured the place... More
