  • Excellent Dali Exhibit. The reason we went to the museum. We arrived about and hour before they closed and should have allowed more time. Worth a visit.  more »
  • Tripadvisor lists "Dali17," "Museum of Monterey" and "Stanton Center" at 5 Custom House Plaza. All are the same, with a permanent exhibit of Dali, and most recent reviews are at Dali17. Powerful image...  more »
  • This place had a traveling Dali Exhibit when we visited but overall their artwork seems good. Its not very large but the natural light and location make it very nice to walk thru and enjoy some art.  more »

  • Richard was a very informative docent. Clean and nice grounds and bathrooms. Interesting exhibits. Free! We donated a couple bucks.
  • Lovely, quiet site. The docent was great, and patient for all the questions we had. At the entrance of the site to the presidio is the cross marking California Historical Marker #128 (the landing site of Vizcaino and Serra). The museum covers a wide period in time and the site behind it allows for the walking up to the eagle statue and indian grinding holes.
  • Beautiful views!
