The Dali Museum, St. Petersburg

For a glimpse at the creative process of a master of Surrealism, visit The Dali Museum. Here you'll see the largest collection of Salvador Dali's works outside Europe. The museum contains works from the private collection of Albert and Eleanor Morse, Dali's patrons and friends for over four decades. The collection includes 96 oil paintings, 100 watercolors and drawings, and over 1,000 graphics, photographs, and sculptures. Pay special attention to the seven works considered Dali's masterpieces, including a metaphorical representation of Christopher Columbus' discovery of America, which took nearly four years to complete. For a taste of traditional Spanish fare, stop by the on-site restaurant, named after Dali's wife Gala.

  • Fascinating collection of Dali artwork. Learned much about his paintings from the self-guided tour with audio headphones. Grounds are also lovely. The only problem was that they do have additional dif...  more »

  • Although we thoroughly enjoyed the museum, we were surprised by how small it is. Entering such a grand building and with an entry price of $17 per person, we expected several floors of history, collec...  more »

  • Very interesting. It was really crowded today. And it was kind of difficult to find the entrance - some signage would be helpful. Unfortunately the garden wasn't open. But the exhibits are really amazing. Loved the fashion exhibit. The Dali works are so intriguing. Great place to take visitors for an interesting cultural experience.
  • The museum is amazing!Really unique layout and architecture.A good collection of Dalis work as well from his early years to just before he passed away.The gift shop is decently priced as well.I only rate this 3 stars for customer service and lack of communication amongst coworkers.We went on a Thursday which is 10 dollar entry after 5 and apparently free parking after 5 as well.However we drove in and were greeted by a lady in a booth she directed us ahead to parking for 10 dollars.We assumed the free parking lot was full but when we pulled to the gentleman taking 10 dollar to park in the parking deck we asked about free parking.He said it is free if we could find a parking spot in the other lot.We turn around following his direction and find a parking spot.We are walking up,almost at the building,when a guy yells at my wife and I and says we need to pay for parking and we said it’s free and he claimed it was not and persisted to yell and said unless we paid we would be yanked out of the exhibit he said it’s 5 until 5 and we needed to pay the 10 dollars.We continues about our day without paying and nothing happened but if it was communicated better between employees we wouldn’t have minded or if he spoke to people like decent human beings we wouldn’t have minded either.Nonetheless the experience in the museum was great and I plan to go back.If you have time to do the virtual reality dream experience I strongly suggest it.Go,have fun and don’t let stupid people ruin your day!
  • Our museum visit was fantastic. We did it as a holiday family outing, ages 14 to 87, and we all loved it. The area where is located is an addition to the museum. While visiting, my son lost his wallet with money and ids in it... the wallet was found and returned to us by the museum at no cost. Very happy with their customer service as well. I recommend the Salvador Dali museum for its quality and their employees.
  • Nice little museum. Has lots of art packed into it. Well worth the visit. You can see some really iconic original pieces here. If you're interested the tours are informative. But I learned a lot just wandering around with the head phones. The gift shop is a cut above what you normally see at places like this.
  • This museum not only met but far exceeded our already high expectations. With a name like the Dali museum we expected to see art work and perhaps personal effects, tools, and others which would illustrate the painter's life and the world he lived in. We got this and more! The free self-guided audio tour was absolutely fantastic and insightful. We are coming back again!!
