My husband and I visited this museum and the art was really interesting. Here were my concerns: it's pricey ($24 a person) for being such a small museum, and you should definitely go with a docent to explain the art, since it is surrealism. A good tip we found out too late is that the museum is open late and... More

Nice paintings but overall a bit weird and a little pricey. It helps to know that I'm not really into art either. I never really understood the "meanings" behind the paintings.

I never thought very much about Salvatore Dali. With his strange paintings of clocks melting, timepieces dripping, surreal objects floating in space - he was wierd. And then his freaky mustache - too egotistical for me! After touring with a well informed and charming docent, Janice, my opinion radically changed. The museum houses many periods of Dali's works from landscapes... More

The artwork is amazing, and it is displayed so beautifully in a gorgeous building. Be sure to get headphones, as Dali paintings need explanation, for the most part. Probably not high on young children's list of things to do, but teens who appreciate art would enjoy.

The new building housing this great collection of Salvador Dali's art is one of the most beautiful in the city. Of course, it helps if you like his art, but if you do not understand it, take one of the docent tours. Well worthwhile!

The collection whowns the versatility of this great artist. We did not know that he had classical and impressionist works. And the guided tour, it is very good. The person really knew how to keep our attention and direct us to important details... And it only lasted 30 minutes.

I took the audio tour so I could wonder round at my own speed. Very informative and beautiful work. Cafe had a nice selection of lunch plates and gift shop has a really good range.

If you are a lover of Dalís art it is definitly worth a visit. Luckily if you know a lot about Dalí before visiting your visit will even be more interesting. The audio tourguide is a little outdated and could use some more interesting facts. The staff is really friendly and the gift shop prices are totally okay for a... More

Tucked away nicely in St Pete. Easy to find and no trouble with parking. ($5). Entered through the gift shop area. Very nice entry! Old rolls Royce filled with water. Neat! Fantastic exhibit with many options for tours whether guided in a small group starting every few minutes, or by grabbing a personal audio device w/ headphones. Both great ideas,... More
