  • I visited this museum just out of curiosity when I learned about the permanent exhibit of some of Salvador Dali paintings. Very interesting and good Dali's work from the period he lived in Monterrey.  more »
  • Right now they have a Dali exhibit.. not sure if it is permanent or temporary.. Although I have seen the one in Spain and another country, this museum added quite a bit of stuff that I had never seen....  more »
  • Nice exhibit. Was not aware of his connection to Monterey. Not really my cup of tea but enjoyed the various themes and styles  more »

  • Loved the staff was very helpful. Was excited to see the lens for point sur lighthouse.
  • Amazing works by Dali. Few suggestions, improve lighting on the art which is very uneven, add more explanations around the art maybe even an audio guide and get better glass the current one is really reflective
  • Lithographs... The largest private collection of Dali's lithographs. A few statues (5 or so) and one old print machine used by Dali (and a few other artists).
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our hour long visit to this small but worthwhile museum. The first floor had pictures of the Monterey pop festival of 1967. and the second floor had a variety of historical artifacts about old Monterey. We enjoy history and had a lovely time. There were rare military artifacts and deep sea diving information Okay, Children should enjoy it, but it won't be good for more than an hour or so. Staff was super helpful. ****
  • The Museum of Monterey - Stanton Center has kept it's famous maritime collection and incorporated in more of the local history. The art community has been there to help keep the museum open and available to the public by adding to it's exhibits and donating funds from sales. The Stanton Center itself has opened its doors to other non-profit organizations in need of a meeting place and offered free to low cost tours to schools and children's groups. It's really turned into a terrific community outreach program. Needless to say I work there and very proud of what we are doing, our Monterey history and the incredible artists, authors, poets and many more, who have stood by us.
