This museum has an impressive collection of large format works by Dali, as well as a number of smaller works, most all of which are oils. I recommend the free docent-led tours, which provide a lot of background info, although admission includes a free audio guide anyway. The building itself is also quite impressive.

I was thoroughly impressed with the building itself, it's so beautiful and unique! Inside being able to view some of the incredible works by Dali, we took a private tour which I highly recommend, it gave you so much more information you would have not gotten by simply walking through yourself. The museum is set up nicely so it doesn't... More

I was not a fan of Dali's art until I took a self guided tour of this museum of his work. It was an interesting comparison between the creativity of Disney and Dali, and how they became friends and influenced each other. I left with a newly found appreciation for Dali's intellectual creativity. I highly recommend the pricey cost of... More

I'm not personally a Dali aficionado but have to admit it was a worthwhile experience one should not miss if in St. Petersburg and an art lover.

I had seen some of Dali's work before in books but didn't realize how much I disliked the style of painting until I was wandering from gallery to gallery. There's a nice garden outside and a small gift shop.

The Dali collection itself is stupendous. The docent who gave our guided tour was very entertaining. Oddly enough, though I liked this building, particularly the way one can access the outdoor seating area from the cafe, I thought the art was more effectively showcased in its previous home. But I suspect I'm in a minority here. The gallery space seemed... More

Great collection and worth the time. The entry fee is a bit steep but it's a fair donation. Right now a Disney -Dali exhibit is featured so it's a good time to go.

When we first arrived we were 'awed' by the building with its rounded glass windows popping out of the building. We were so awed by the building that we walked around it was very impressed. One side you can view a local marina and another side has a nice garden area with art mixed in. This is all free. (Super... More

Wonderful collection of Dali masterpieces not to be missed. Do join one of the guided tours included in the entrance fee and/or take advantage of the loan of headphones to guide your tour, also included. The docents are really helpful and will answer questions until there are no more. Take time to walk outdoors and enjoy the view and admire... More

My wife and I decided to become members even before this first cursory visit of ours. The joint husband and wife membership is very good value for money. The museum itself is an example of impressive architecture. The surrealistic world of Dali is always interesting to explore and the Disney exhibit we found to be very informative. We will definitely... More
