Not to be missed,... the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg features a magnificent collection, a beautiful building, impeccable grounds and even a first class cafeteria. Key to a truly enjoyable visit is to have a guide, they are well trained and knowledgable. Plan ahead for at least for a two hour visit and enjoy the museum shop.

The guided tour is the only way to go...you learn so many things that add to the experience of viewing the art. It's the stories and information that add to this experience and make it enjoyable.

Even if you don't think of yourself as a museum type you should go to the Dali! Currently there is an exhibit of Leonardo DaVinci and his influences on Dali which is wonderful! Definitely do the guided tour which is included in your entry price, then do another trip around for a more leisurely viewing. The audio self guide info... More

This museum showcases a vast collection of Dali art, mostly from a single collector. It does not have many of Dali's most famous pieces. Nevertheless, it was a fascinating look into the mind of a great artist and visionary. If you go, I highly recommend you take one of the guided tours. The docents were brimming with factual knowledge and... More

I wasn't a Dali fan before I went in, but I was when we left. You must take one of the guided tours where they explain the hidden pictures within the famous paintings. Absolutely fascinating! There was also an Andy Warhol exhibit (back in March 2014) which was not very elegant but interesting. I highly recommend this place even if... More

Fascinating! I love Dali. 100% recommend the museum. I spend about 5 hours at a museum, carefully exploring every picture. If you love Dali, that is the place to be.

The museum is on the waterfront and is nice but it's what you expected. Relatively small and can be seen in 30-60m with a casual stroll and stop to read and examine.

The price of admission includes a recorded guide but I also recommend the docent led tours as well. Very informative. Nice cafe inside and sweet outdoor area.

I enjoyed the visit to the museum. While surrealism is not my favorite genre, I focused more on the technique and the message that was intended. I liked the large masterworks the best. We visited the museum while there was another exhibit pairing Dali with Da Vinci. Interesting.
