“Dali, at his best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

I always wondered about Dali's special and unique artwork. This museum is a great tribute to an artist often misunderstood, and seldom recognized for his abilities. I enjoyed the tour, as well as the headphones that explained the paintings and eras in detail. The gift shop is beautiful also! They have a beautiful outdoor eating area, and an indoor cafe. The museum is perfectly located by the ocean, a perfect photo opportunity for you and your loved ones.

“Beautiful facility”

Building is almost as inspiring as the art. Be sure to take a docent tour. Recomend headset tour, too.

“What a gem for Dali's work”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Definitely try to time your visit for a tour by a very knowledgeable docent who will highlight 7 or 8 of his paintings; then go back and view the rest of his works with a free audio tour. An Andy Warhol visiting exhibit is there through April 27th and it was a very nice addition to our viewing experience. We had lunch at the museum's cafe because we did not want to use any of our time to leave the museum. It was a Spanish-themed menu and our selections were delicious. We will definitely return to this museum the next visit to St. Pete.

“Salvador Dali”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

There are numerous works of Dali on display with a variety of styles represented. Be sure and borrow a "free" headset so that you can hear about the various works of Dali...very informative. Try and visit between tour times if you want to tour on your own as the tour guide hinders independent viewing of works.

“Amazing attraction for art lovers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

Museum itself is spectacular but the amount of Dali's work in this rather quiet Florida city is amazing. Docent tours are quite complete or you can use ear phones to understand the art work. When we were there an Andy Warhol exhibit was also on display.
