This incredible, vibrant and unique museum will literally leave you speechless and begging for more. Dali’s creative mind is showcased in this exquisite museum. It is absolutely a must see attraction for all. Young, old, fan or not, you will become one after seeing this amazing collection of works.
From the outside, the museum has a beautiful mix of old and new including blue glass and straight concrete slabs. There are also fun things to do outside like a massive Dali mustache, perfect for pics and representations of the Golden Ratio on the ground.
As you enter and explore, you will see Dali’s works through a timeline in which he did them and you can even order a headset to hear explanations of certain pieces and their meanings. Highly recommended!
The Dali Museum celebrates the life and work of Salvador Dali (1904-1989) and features works from the artist’s entire career. The collection includes over 2,000 works from every moment and in every medium of his artistic activity including 96 oil paintings, many original drawings, book illustrations, prints, sculpture, photos, manuscripts and an extensive archive of documents. Founded with the works collected by Reynolds and Eleanor Morse, the Museum has made significant additions to its collection over the years.
Located outside of Tampa in beautiful St. Petersburg, FL lies the gorgeous glass and concrete style psychedelic Dali Museum. This place fits Salvadore’s style perfectly, with the curved glass panels on flat concrete walls, it is a site to behold. The huge mustache out front and the Golden Ratio floor model make for some pretty cool pictures outside, but once you enter the museum, you enter an entirely new world. This museum houses some of Dali’s most famous, rare and beautiful priceless pieces of art.
The food in their cafeteria is even amazing and the staff is more than happy to assist and answer any questions that you may have.
