“Eccentric - Eclectic”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

This home is a must see for those curious about Dali and his interesting life & love. He was a real collector and creator. Maybe just a little unique on the crazy side ... but we really enjoyed our visit and the staff were terrific and explained everything in English even though we were the only english speakers in the group.

“An intimate slice of the Dali and Gala's life, though overpriced.”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Great for kids, he lived a little like the subject matter in his works - surrealistic rooms, twisty passages, bizarre stuffed animals. The house boasts a stuffed polar bear, eagle, rhino and several swans. A shrine of and for his ego. A whole room full of photos of himself flirting with the camera, wallpapering the room. Seems he lived knowing his home would become a shrine. If you don't mind a heavy dose of megalomania, expect it if you know him, then it's lots of fun. The walk to and from Cadaques is beautiful and a good part if the experience, too. Stop in at the Church of Sant Baldiri, at the apex of the hill on the way.

“Whimsy and wit”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Forget about using GPS to find it, but rest assured that it will be worth every minute spent driving up and down the muddy roads and narrow streets with no signs indicating where you are! Perhaps surviving the drive adds to the overall thrill! Dali and Gala's home by the sea offers an insight into their lives that simply cannot be conveyed by his works of art. Here you can sense the "daily Dali", so to speak -- a man of superb talent, abundant wit and a work of art in and of himself. Every room in this abode speaks of the inestimable experience of being part of the Dali household. Reservations (easily made on line) are a must, although we did hear the lady at the ticket booth make room for an unwitting tourist who had not realized that. The attendant gift shops are well-stocked with a variety of not-too-expensive items that allow one to take home more than a memory. This was definitely the highlight of our Dali trek to Spain.

“A must!”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

Have not visited the larger museum in nearby Figures but Dali's former seaside home/studio is fascinating and well worth a visit.
