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...

We had been to the Dali Museum in Barcelona, so wanted to see in Paris as well. Many interesting drawings and sculptures, not many paintings though unfortunately. Neat that they have original Dali for sale from 500 euro for small lithographs/works on up to 20,000+ or more I am sure for sculptures. In Montmartre which is so charming and cute... More

Outside of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, it's tough to recall a more complete and memorable retrospective of a single artist's work than Espace Dali. Bigger than it looks, the museum arranges its collection of Dali's prints, sculptures and other media in a progression that beautifully tells the story of his life, inspiration, and place in the tapestry of...

We decided to visit the Espace Dali, because I am a fan of his famous paintings. Although the price of 11.50 Euro per person shocked us, we wanted to give it a chance. But we were pretty disappointed - instead of his beautiful paintings, you mostly see some collage work and sculptures, that aren't even made by Dali himself. So... More

Just to clarify: we are not Dali's art connoisseurs. If you want to see some of his work this is a must-see place if you are around Montmartre. Some crazy art on display. Very enjoyable place and not busy at all (no waiting to enter). We were there with kids but just to let you know they have some erotic... More

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.

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.
