Really cool house, left as it was when Dali moved out. Need to call and make a reservation in advance. Late afternoon/evening is a great time, beautiful light.

Not your typical museum. Make sure to put a coin in the movable exhibits especially if you would like to see it rain inside Dali's personal Cadillac. The museum or theater was not only designed by Dali and full of his work it's also his final resting place. While not a big fan of his work I did enjoy visiting.... More

A very unique home of Dali and it makes sense after seeing the museum in Figueres. Loved checking out all the details within each room. And do not miss the outside areas too.

Really interesting view into the life of one of the worlds most interesting and innovative artists. I think giving you a very personal insight into an amazing character. If you are slightly interested in Dali you will love this visit.

Popularity has its downsides and, make no rmistake, this place is popular. The downside? Putting through the volume of visitors that make their way here requires strict adherence to "house rules". We did book in advance but there was no flexibility on admission when we showed up 90 minutes early. Our next mistake was to turn up six minutes after... More

The trip is harrowing, on high, narrow mountain roads. Oh, how I wish I had checked Trip Advisor first, because when we got there we found that one cannot enter the museum without prior reservations. From where we traveled, it was a very long trip and there was nothing we could do about it. We did enjoy the outdoor area... More

In the words of Kanye West, when my boyfriend's family and I arrived at the museum, we ended up being "all dressed up with nowhere to go" - i.e. we didn't realize we had to make reservations for a private tour through the house. As a result, we were only able to see the gardens even after driving for about... More

I've been on the Dali trail, starting in Figueres. The house is interesting, but our guide was not very helpful or informative. The best part was when we could wander outside on our own and see Dali's spectacular outdoor art. The pool area is astonishing, but so is everything. As noted, reservations are a must. They only let 10 people... More

This is not easy to get to on the mountain road, but it is only about an hour from Figueres, were the Dali Theater/Museum is located. The house and grounds are both picturesque and unique, with great views of the little harbor and the Mediterranean. The house tour is restricted to small groups inside, but you are free to spend...

The house-as-museum is wonderfully preserved . Hardly any information is given, so you can just look and experience it as a home (and studio where two of the last paintings Dali was working on are still at their easels). the drive to get here is very winding and there is no place to pass other drivers so can be slow;...
