Salvador Dali, the master of surrealism in Paris!

Espace Dali, located in the heart of the famous artists' village, Montmartre, exhibits the largest collection of artworks by Salvador Dali in France.

Dali as you have never seen before!

The collection is the fruit of the emblematic surrealist artist's extravagant inspiration: theatrical sculptures, erotic, dreamlike or irresistibly humorous engravings, poetic objects and furniture, are all part of the phantasmagorical universe of the inventor of soft watches.

The multiple facets of the Catalan Master

3D Surrealism

Thanks to Dali, everything can be transformed by the magic of dreams: the Space Elephant with spindly legs seems to defy gravity, a watch melts from a branch, a snail spreads its wings and Venus has drawers.

Stories and wonders

Dali had an encyclopedic culture and was fascinated by major themes from literature, mythology and religion. He used many different techniques to illustrate universal texts: Alice in Wonderland, Romeo and Juliet, Don Quixote, The Bible... As well as more personal works, such as Moses and Monotheism or The Alchemy of the Philosophers.

Each book is an art object.

Sculptures, drawings, water colors, engravings, lithographs, Espace Dali invites us to explore the main themes of his work: dreams, mythology, sensuality...

The Espace Dali in Paris near the Place deu Tertre in Montmartre just reopened after long work. It includes significant works of the artist, the place is a little away from the crowd in the cellars, and then Salvador Dali is an extraordinary artist

Considering the number of Dali museums around the world it shouldn't have been a surprise that this museum did not contain many of his best known works. I'm not an art aficionado but as Dali used recurrent symbols in his work there was elements that felt familiar all over and as it featured some of his lesser known work (an... More

It is important to understand that this is just a minor exhibition of his work, nothing more. Ability to buy some of his work, if you have the money of course.

There are couple of sculptures and a lots of paintings/sketches. Lot of info about symbols and techniques used by Dali. The visit shouldn't take more than an hour - this venue is rather small. For the price (11EUR) seems to me a bit overpriced...

Whether you're an art fan or not, if you're in Paris you should go to the Dali museum in Monte Martre, very close to the Sacre Coeur. The museum is quite small but they make great use of the space to display a fantastic selection of Dali's work, that includes many of his well-known sculptures and paintings. As for the... More

Don't even think of paying to go to this little rip off of a "museum." The part of the city is great, but the "espace" is a joke. My son, who is completely intrigued with Dali and Surrealism, was extremely let down. This business really deserves to fail.

We are in Paris every year, As we are both artists we visit many galleries but we had never been to the art gallery featuring Dali's many and varied works - lots of sculptures and watercolours and collages. I found this gallery very stimulating, as well as very informative with write ups in both French and English for each piece.... More

We went to many museums over our two week trip to Europe, and this was one of our favorites. It is small, we went through the whole thing in about 45 minutes, but the works and descriptions of them are very interesting, and there is so much to see! It was a wonderful addition to our day in Montmartre.

Staying in Montmartre

Neighborhood Profile
Montmartre
Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colors, and styles which changes from one street to another. Ride the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy features shops not intended for young audiences, while residences are scattered to the north and east. The diverse population includes a large part from the Arab-speaking world, Africa, and Turkey. It’s a corner of Paris full of life and dynamism with charms that can’t be found anywhere else.
