Loved the museum building, great layout, nice shop and convenient parking. We were disappointed though in the amount of artwork on display. It seemed like the original Dali Museum had a lot more art - that museum went on and on and on. This seemed like a smaller Dali space, fewer pieces, disappointing.

We loved the new location and the new building . We had a very energetic docent who was funny and entertaining, we learned so much about Dali and his love for Gala. We would return in a heartbeat to learn more about this interesting man.

We have all seen hundreds of Dali paintings and drawings in magazines and even on calendars. Occasionally an original piece or a few pieces will be displayed in a gallery or museum. It is absolutely necessary to see this display of his art in order to grasp the breadth and depth of his work. The breadth is absolutely the size of some of his works; they are huge. I never dreamed looking at reproduced images of his work of their actual size. And the depth of his color cannot be truly reproduced. Take 2 or 3 hours of your day and enjoy this collection of art; I think you will enjoy it. Just don't try to understand it and you will be fine.

What a truly great experience! I am a huge Dali fan and the museum was the reason to visit St.Petes. My boyfriend on the other hand was not familiar with Dali, but loved the museum as well! A free guided tour was included which is a must in my opinion.

This is a good museum if you are interested in in this type of art. The layout is not that great and it is more of a store then a museum. There were more items for sale then on the display.
