Dali - The Exhibition at Potsdamer Platz, Berlin

#51 of 168 in Museums in Berlin
Dali - The Exhibition at Potsdamer Platz is a house of the surreal, with more than 400 exhibits displaying Salvador Dali's genius. Look for the "Apocalypse of St. John" with holes punched in it--a painting that was blessed by the Pope and that Dali tried to destroy in a fit of self-abasement. English-speaking guides are on hand at the museum, so there is no need to book ahead. These Dali Scouts lead you through the rooms, describing paintings and sharing details about Dali's life along the way. The exhibits showcase more than 2,000 pieces of Dali's work gathered from private collections around the world. The modern building doubles as an event venue Add Dali - The Exhibition at Potsdamer Platz to your Berlin travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Berlin online itinerary planner .

  • A true masterpiece for us Dali fans. I was so happy when I found out about this exhibition as Dali is one of my favourite artists. We paid the extra fee to take photos as there was no way I was going ...  more »

  • This was an amazing exhibition. Pricewise it was cheaper than similar exhibitions in my hometown London, it had a wonderful range of his less well known works (very much focusing on sketches) which were beautifully executed. The staff were friendly, nicely stocked gift shop, and I would heartily recommend it to art lovers. The €2 surcharge for permission to take photographs is probably the best €2 I spent all holiday. Really enjoyed my visit here!
  • I must respectfully disagree with any of the reviews saying the exhibit wasn't worth the money or was too small. They had 450 works! If you wanted his more well known works, perhaps visit his museum outside Barcelona. I thought the exhibit was wonderful and it provided me with a good insight into the variety of works that Dali created over the course of his life. It showed accurately his varied artistic style and, indeed, gave a well rounded view of some of his lesser known works. The biblical works were especially intriguing. Well worth the 12 euros IMO.
  • Very nice museum and very kind staff. there are a lot of things to know price wise before going in but they explain it all to you wwithout any fuss, really appreciated that. Dali's work was spectacular and was a highlight of my day, would even consider going back
  • Absolutely fascinating trip into the mind of one of the most eccentric artists. Some fantastic exhibits. Would definitely recommend purchasing the guide book for a couple of euro's. Discount available with the Berlin Welcome Card.
  • Well thought out exhibition primarily of prints and some small sculptures occupying four rooms on a single floor. Great opportunity to appreciate the diversity of themes and styles.
