“Dali Theatre”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

This was my second visit to the Dali Theatre and I enjoyed it as much as the first. Not easy to find in Figueres narrow and complicated streets. Managed to park about 10 mintues away on street. It was bust for early in the season but only a very short queue to get in. lots of student groups. Really quirky place with a great range of his work. Recommended if you like your art a little different.

“Absolutely Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

On the ruins of the former Municipal Theatre, Dalí arranged the largest surrealistic object in the world. This eccentric museum has to be visited and you should have at least 3 hours time to see a minimum. The best will be if you book a guided tour because then you get a much better insights some of the thousands masterpieces shown. But don't go there without a reservation for a tour because otherwise you may want some hours. So at least you should prebook your tickets online.

There is a separate Dalí Jewels exhibition which is also worth a visit. This has shouldn't be missed even if you are not a great fan of Dali.

“Wild and Wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2013

This museum is unlike anything else you will ever see. Everything about it and in it is a work of artistic imagination. Whether or not you like Dali's work, you have to marvel at this place. We went on a weekday, off season, and stood in the line to get in for 45 minutes. Once we were inside, it was pretty crowded. We were told that the line can take 3 hours in the summer. So be prepared or check in advance on how long the wait to get in will be.

“Life Becomes Art”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

This has to be a joke from beyond the grave. It's quite hilarious watching all the busy fools snap away on their iPhones. If its clean lines and white walls you're after then don't go. On the other hand if its a chaotic and colourful Daliesque experience that melts your clock then you're in for a treat. Don't miss it. Oh and leave your camera in the hotel.

If it's Dali's wonderful work you want to see then go early or late.

“If You're a Fan”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2013

We were in Barcelona for a few days, pre-cruise, and my husband and I are both Dali fans, so we purchased train tickets and headed to Figueres. First of all, getting there was easy. Walking to and from the train station was no problem. As far as the museum itself goes, I was very disappointed and my husband less so, although after visiting this one, he felt the Dali museum in St. Pete, FL was far better. We both enjoyed the displays, but felt that the experience would have been better had they had descriptions for each piece. The jewelry exhibit was actually more interesting. If you have extra time on you hands and love Dali, you might want to consider the trip.
