  • Not far from Figueres Dali Museum contributes also to the contribution of the works presented here, the exhibition of Céret brings an interesting light on the work of the master. The reflection of Dali on optics and x-rays produce amazing works - table of Lincoln is the most evident example. "Critical paranoia" as mental process at the source of some works is well highlighted as well as the anguish of the painter - influence of Atomic explosions. The revisited Angelus of Millet is one of the keys among others to enter the universe of an artist often alleged political accommodation but the indisputable genius. That's the whole point of this exhibition to account for this complexity in a just way. The guided tour of an hour about is essential.

  • The price of admission to 8 euros is clearly again, but we go out our CB anyway. Then after payment, surprise the teller gives us no indication, like the meaning of the visit for example, recommendations... It's right here for cash so even substitute a perhaps pay station, it will be as warm as home! Fortunately we're resourceful and our enthusiasm not tainted by these little annoyances have allowed us to be swept away by this exhibition. As, we became more and more curious, more receptive to the artistic work of Dali. Then we we finished in the projection room where we enjoyed the film retrospective of the artist's life, we were absorbed by his fancy, creativity that was even more apparent on the screen. And an employee came into the room to interrupt this projection, inform us that the Museum was closing. We clearly understand the imperatives of schedules and we we bend without problem, but it's just amazing to let us access to this screening room even if those visitors do not see the end of this video. Clearly we are out frustrated your Museum, frustrated and skeptical that we couldn't see the end of the film. And we were even more shocked to see that the shop of the Museum was closed before the closing of the Museum, we however planned at the end of the visit to buy the book to the exhibition. To summarize, but beautiful exhibition, the Museum staff to review. 8 euros, there is a minimum to ensure so make an effort

  • Interesting collection of modern art. Allowed me to discover great modern painters in my opinion too little known (I think Auguste Herbin, Pinkus Kremegne, Edouard Pignon, Léopold Survage). Interesting Dali exhibition. Very decent rate, extended hours and ability to use the same ticket throughout the day. In the heart of the lively ceret.

  • Lovely small and nice museum. The art is very nice and shows a lot of artwork from Ceret. When you step outside you already recognize the views from the paintings!
  • Great value entry for a museum packed full of important works of art.
  • Small but nice
  • Excellent permanent collection of modern art with variable, but usually very good, visiting exhibitions.
