  • We were recommended to go in the evening hours, very good advice. It is impressive. I highly recommend it. Nothing more with the input you get impressed, and the exhibition of jewelry worth watching also.

  • We had purchased tickets online to avoid the queue in the bright sun. That worked out well - arrive but is prerequisite, otherwise the ticket is worthless. Visiting time was Saturday at 15.30 and this is not recommended: too full and due to the heat according to bad air.

  • Very nice place, lots of world and difficult accessibility, a few major pieces missing but an essential step

  • This was a great museum that celebrates the genius and quirkiness of Dali. We stayed here for over 2 hours despite the crowd. We got in when it opened so there weren't as many people compared to later in the morning when it got quite crowded, especially by tour groups. The artwork is amazing and eclectic. The main reason I did not give this a 5 star is that there is no audio guide which would have helped in learning more about each artwork. But the artworks were enjoyable nonetheless.
  • This is a cannot miss if you are going to Barcelona. Dalí designed this museum... It is incredible. Every corner, ceiling, stairway... there's something to see. I'm sure if I ever go back, I'll see more things that I missed! The famous melting clocks tapestry can be found here.
  • Pure genius! Take your time on each exhibit and admire the work it would've taken to put each article together. We spent three hours in there and could've done four. A tour guide would have been great as there is no audio guide. Perhaps do some reading or research first and it'll provide context.
  • Dalí's home and studio for the later part of his life was converted into this museum. His genius is quite evident in the work on display here. We were surprised by his jewelry; be sure to leave time for that area. We went through the museum with a guide who was quite helpful.
  • Wow Wow Wow!!! this is the most interesting museum I have ever been to in that it takes you into the mind of one genius. Yes not all you may like but the variety of work is incredible. I highly recommend you buy tickets online and go early. It gets crowded for sure.
