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...

This is a totally underrated attraction in Paris. The Dali museum is fantastic. Every sculpture and piece of art has a beautiful explanation and background to it. We enjoyed it thoroughly. It is very peaceful there! There is a fee and I believe it is not covered with the Paris museum pass. Go here if you love art!!

Many known and lesser known artworks and sculptures on display. Informative narrative as you wander around the gallery. Intimate feeling to the place and although it is small, it didn't feel overcrowded at all. Lovely place to spend a couple of hours.

We tried to visit. We are both students but above 26 and we needed to pay the full entrance, which I found quite expensive if you compare with the size of the other museums. I paid $15 for the Louvre and the Dali museum was $11.5. I really like Dali so I was going to pay, but their card machine... More

This paid museum was a nice break during our walk through Montmartre. We had been to the gallery in Florida many years ago, and it wasn't to my tastes. This museum did such a good job of explaining the symbols and motifs that Dali used in his works (and so many explanations were in English and French). It was a... More

A simple museum that won't take the day to review. An hour is plenty for this place, but you will see some amazing art and gain great insights behind Dali and is works. A must if you are even remotely interested in Dali.

If you are a fan of Salvador Dalí you must come visit this museum. What an intimate place to experience his paintings and sculptures. Give yourself extra time to walk on the nearby restaurants and to enjoy the live artists and painters.

This little museum, just west of Sacre Coeur, took a bit of effort to find on a blustery wet day. There are quite a number ofstriking sculptures by this eccentric artist, including a couple of his whimsical melting clocks. The explanations accompanying the artwork were very helpful to interpret the artist's perspective and bring out his repeating themes in his... More

¿How to understand Salvador Dalí's artwork? Well, I think this is the perfect space for beginners to understand the artwork of one of the most importants artist of the 20th Century. Espace Dali offers to the public a perfect explanation of the author's ponit of vision and how literature, religion, erotism and love influenced him. As it is a short... More

Went there on rather tight a schedule and found it an interesting introduction to Dali's work, personal feel due to the smallish space. Also the first grader accompanying could bare the less than an hour visit surrounded by surrealism.

You really get a great feel for what this artist was all about. There are many sketches, private pages from his diary, etc. that really show you how eccentric and wonderful this man was. The sculptures based on Dali's work are spectacular. I learned a lot about Dali that I didn't know and I really enjoyed the ethereal music and... More

Staying in Montmartre

Neighborhood Profile
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.
