“Great museum”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

A must for Dali-fans and all other people who love surrealistic art. I brought my son (15) and he also liked all the different paintings. It is a private collection but better than lots of museums around the world. Two huge masterpieces, The Toreador and The Discovery of America, steal the show but there is a lot more to see.
If you want to eat something, there is a museum bistro but the restaurant "The Hangar" across the street is also very good.

“A unique outing”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

The new building is awe-inspiring with it's spherical 3 story glass window that gives a view of the waterfront and the (sadly) soon to be demolished pier. There are tours available but we enjoyed exploring on our own and slipping in and out of the tour groups when something sounded interesting. Which with Dali it usually is. A must see if you visit St. Pete

“Not what we expected!”
Reviewed 9 August 2014

I always thought Dali was a little on the weird side until I actually visited the museum and took the guided tour. They happen every half hour and are free. The knowledge that was shared by the guide made it much easier to understand Dali genius and perspective of the world. When we finished the guided tour, we went back and got the FREE headset for the audio tour and went back through the exhibits. We spent 2 hours enjoying ourselves and learning a whole new perspective on Dali's contributions to the art world. This is the number one attraction in St. Pete, and worth a few hours of your time if you are interested in art or history.

“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.
