The Dalí Museum, St. Petersburg

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.

    have to be honest I didn't know much about Dali before coming to this museum - he was quite the artist for sure! Extensive collection of works throughout his life. The museum admission is a bit pricy ...  more »

    We are also in the Dali museum in Spain and that I found many make more fun. Though again, other large canvases that hang well. We were, however, lost with zn $80 celebrate and that is out of proportion with what there is to see in my opinion. Still, nice to have been there for sure if you have a number of days in Saint Petersburg.

    We visited here as a family of four whilst staying at St Petes. We were initially put off as we thought the entrance fee a bit high but decided to go for it and we were glad we did. It is quite a larg...  more »

    We brought our daughter. Not very kid friendly. One of the security guards asked me to take her off my shoulders for "safety" reasons. I did and then he didn't want her walking around on her own, and kept saying they have strollers downstairs. She screams when restrained in a stroller. Is perfectly comfortable on my shoulders. It just felt like they were trying to get us to leave because of our daughter. The art was awesome and the garden was fun. If you have kids check out the garden and gift shop...they are free to see.

    Very cool to see some of Dali's works up close. Gift shop has a lot of cool souvenirs. Place was super busy when we visited. I would recommend that you come during the week so you have some peace while viewing the art. Loses a star because you have to pay $10 to park. I would prefer parking be free and you just pay an extra $1 per ticket because it created this traffic jam outside the lot.

    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.

    It's a good collection, and admission gives you access to the special exhibitions as well as the permanent collection. That's rare, in my experience. The audio tours are free, and they offer public docent tours as well. The collection is small, however, and the solace can quickly feel crowded which is why I will only give it 4 stars.

    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.
