Specialty Museum
For a glimpse at the creative process of a master of Surrealism, visit The Dalí 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. Put The Dalí Museum and other St. Petersburg attractions into our St. Petersburg trip itinerary builder, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Amazing museum. I was blown away by the collection the museum has. The building is beautiful. The audio tour is fantastic, download it on your phone, bring your own head phones and you can skip picking that equipment up when you get there. It seemed like a pricey entry price before going but after you definitely understand why and it's worth the price. The garden is very cool too.
  • Visited the Dali while attending a conference. This was fascinating and I highly recommend that you go through with a guide. Our group had a private tour which provided so much additional information. If I had just walked through on my own I definitely wouldn't have gotten as much from it.
  • The museum, tour, and everything in general was fantastic and very impressive! However, I'm giving it two stars instead of five, because of a very rude employee. I didn't catch her name, but she is white, has straight medium-light brown hair with glasses. She was middle aged. She did NOT like her job apparently and was NOT having a good day. I asked her if what she was doing was a tour, and she said "This is not a tour, now please get out of my way." I thought it was a tour because it was 2:30 and she had a clipboard in her hand and there were people swarmed around her in the viewing area on the third floor. Her tone was extremely condescending to me and my family. She continued to use this horrible tone to speak to other customers waiting around for a tour. A lot of strangers around me gasped and said "wow" because they were appalled at how she spoke to us. I'm not sure how she still has a job being that rude. I went there 6/4/2017 if that narrows down whoever the rude woman is.
  • A great place to see Dali's works. The listening guide didn't seem to follow any sequence within the exhibit, but that's just a quibble. The paintings themselves were marvelous examples oh his style. A "must see" is the Virtual Reality, which he envisioned but couldn't realize in his lifetime.
  • Love this place! The one hour guided tour made a real difference in understanding the mind of Dali, and his works. Also recommend using the audio sets that give valuable details about each work of art. The staff is helpful, the gift shop is cool, and even the cafe has pretty good food.
