  • My boyfriend loves maritime and naval history, and we always go to the local maritime museum while on trips. He had heard about this one, so I looked it up and saw that there was a new Dali exhibit. W...  more »

  • A good small museum with lots of paintings by Salvador Dalí. View the pictures takes about 2:00. Especially suitable for museum lovers.

  • 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.
