The building is amazing, stunning view and the art is divine.
I really don’t recommend it to people with disability, children or any mobility limitation. You have to book it and pay in advance but you find out only there you basically have to go up and down the mountains near the building to get there. No buses, no taxis. And as a turist very likely you didn’t rent a car. Also many, many stairs and very steepy and old ones. And no they don’t mention it on the website. They say the building which is clearly full of stairs as well is not suitable for people with limited good mobility but they don’t say that’s difficult only even to get there. It’s actually quite harder to get there by feet than to visit the building itself.

The house was lived in by the Dali's until she died. It started as a summer cottage and then they added floors to the house. It is very compact on the first floor but gets larger in his studio. The bedrooms and dressing rooms are very much their style and seem uncomfortable. There is a round room which is the highlight of the second floor. The exterior gardens and pool, which is shaped like Dali's profile, is well worth seeing. The house has guided tours daily.

We loved the tour of the Dali House! So exciting to see where this famous artist lived & see the very unique & interesting architecture of the home. The man was a character!

Two tips: 1) There is no parking on site. Park either up on the hill at a parking lot or the other side of the house on a public street. 2) I had read no backpacks were allowed so didn’t bring one. I wasn’t expecting that they would not let me bring my purse. I had to rent a locker across the pathway for 1€ which I didn’t have because I had brought no coins with me. But the woman at the ticket booth loaned me 1€ which I repaid at the end of our visit.

The entire visit took approx. 1 1/2 hours. Be sure to see the terraced back yard (another documentary movie plays in several languages there) & the rear patio with lap pool!

You need to be perseverant to find this place by car since there is little to help you find it and we almost missed our time since it took so long to find it. Well worth the visit. Interesting life and so sweet how devoted Dali was to his wife Gala

Beautiful location, and beautiful little house. Surprisingly not as eccentric as we expected. Being Dali's house, we expected a lot of unusual decoration and what not, but it wasn't the case. This gave us a different view of Dali's personality. It is a must see. I personally enjoyed seeing the little house.

We hadn't booked our tickets before hand, but it is worth doing. We were lucky to get in fairly quicky, but some people had to wait over an hour to get in. Beware that the site is not accessible to people in wheel chairs, and if you have difficulties walking, plan your visit carefully as you can access the site via different entrances.

A wonderful hour and a half experiencing the intimate spaces of Dali's home.

Here the man comes alive and without narration or guidance you know the world that inspired the man's imagination.

Well presented, original and unspoilt. Visit if you want to know how Dali lived.

We spent 3 nights in Cadaques Spain and toured the house of Salvador Dali in Port Lligat. Before the tour my husband and I knew he was an artist and some of his work, but not much more about him. This home tour is not to be missed if you are in the area. We enjoyed everything about the house and learning more about the artist and his wife. He lived there till 1982, when his wife died, he left. The house is as he left it. Fascinating! Advance reservations are a good idea. They only let in 8 people at each time.

This is my second visit to the Dali Museum House. The first time was about 14 years ago when I was truly impressed. this time I was appalled. we joined a queue that snaked round the outer courtyard and we waited about half an hour for admission. On entry we were astounded to see how many people were packed into the place. Every picture, exhibit andfeature was thronged and, short of being rude and discourteous, we could not get access to any view points for the major events. Although the day was not particularly hot by Spanish standards nearly all of the rooms were humid and overheated mainly from the press of bodies. There were so many people on the access stairs that one lady was forced off a stair and fell apparently injuring herself quite badly. She should sue the Museum as the overcrowding almost certainly caused her accident. Overall it was a huge disappointment. I do not recommend visiting this place until some kind of crowd control and limitation is introduced.

If you don't book online you probably won't get in. Even if you do book online, but don't get to the house 30 minutes before your ticket time they will give your ticket to someone else! They are very strict on time as the place is so small, and only groups of 6 people can visit at one time slot. You must follow the instructions they email you closely otherwise you run the risk of disappointment. Dali's house is located in a very remote place just outside of Cadaques in Port Lligat. Driving there through miles of very narrow, winding mountain roads with no guard rail, and a long drop into the valley below can get quite scary at times. My advice is to plan your journey with an hour of extra time, because even when you reach the parking lot it's still a long walk down the street and lots of cobbled stairs before you reach the house. It's absolutely not a good place for anyone who is disabled or unable to do a lot of exercise. Having said all this, Dali's house is well worth the hassle. It's in a beautifully picturesque location, and gives a great insight into Dali's home life with his love Gala.

Visit in small groups (8 pax) the house of the eccentric artist, Salvador Dali. Guides speak several languages. A must!
