“A Must See Museum”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 via mobile

If you're a fan of Salvador Dali (and even if you're not), this is one of the few truly Must See Attractions in St. Petersburg, FL

It showcases one of the most comprehensive art collections available from well renowned painter and artist Salvador Dali. Integrating technology with the arts, it gives the visitor the option to either take a guided tour or just picking up a headset and walk through it at your own leisure pace. It also features a good Spanish themed Café and and an extraordinary Gift shop. Admission is very reasonable but bring some extra cash when you visit, just because the gift shop is so utterly amazing, you'll want to get one of everything available!

“A St Pete must!”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

The building itself is a piece of art! The Dali Museum is easy to find and easy parking (although you do have to pay). Very friendly employees make the experience even more pleasant.

“Dali-epic”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

My new word- meaning to go above expectations, which is exactly what this museum did. Not only do you see the amazing pieces up front and almost hands on. Starting from the beginning and to the very end, you will be riveted in the art that shaped the world. Our kids liked it to, and the gift shop at the end, though a little pricey had many items under 10 dollars. and not just your typical knick knacks, but true Dali items, miniatures of his paintings and pretty cool t-shirts!! Next time we are here we will definitely visit again

“Beautiful museum”
Reviewed 8 August 2014 via mobile

This is a great gallery for art lovers. The tour guides are well informed.
They also have free audio headphones so you can hear about each painting.

This is a small gallery, but give yourself at least 2 hours to see everything.

This is not a place for small children!

The gift shop is fantastic!! The prices are not bad at all.

I recommend that you go on a Thursday after 5 pm. You can get in for $10. That is more reasonable price for this gallery.

Students (with school ID) get a discount.

It is okay to take pictures, but they do ask for no FLASH photography.

It would not hurt to read up on Dali, before the gallery. The more you know about his life, the better the tour becomes.

“Extraordinaty!”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

I saw a Dali exhibit at the Philadelphia Museum of Art years ago, bit it was somewhat disturbing.

The Dali museum in St. Petersburg was nothing at all like that because of the way the presented the art, the guided recordings and the beautiful natural light.... What a special day I had there with my adult son. A fond memory.
