“Not to be missed Florida attraction!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

I visited this museum on two occasions: in April 2011 with my Mom and then again in July 2011 with friends. It is simply a must-see place in Florida!!!
Beautiful building in a beautiful setting and the 2nd largest Dali collection in the world (and the largest outside of Spain.)
The in-person guides are great but if you have the time take the headphones tour -- it's pretty in-depth and covers a lot of the art you'll see displayed.
The Dali museum and the St Petersburg boardwalk have become my Florida routine :)

“Great Docent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

A good tour opens up Dali and his art in all of its complexity. I think our docent was named Ali. Take a tour because it makes a big difference with this artist.

“What a wonderful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

If you go, rent the headphones/audio tour. It's so worth it because you can better understand the times Dali lived in, and gain greater insight into the amazing artist's motivation for his art. Thursdays from 5pm-8pm the museum admission is only $10. Very worth it; plan to go back soon.

Take the guided tour - you get way more out of the art work.

“Interesting Inside and Out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

The outside of the building is impressive and located near the harbor in St. Petersburg, FL. Free parking a plus. The inside staircase to the third story gallery gets you ready for the unusual nature of Dali's art. Great selection of early to late period Dali with very nice displays. Free headphones with admission provide helpful background to understand the 'strangeness' and context of many of Dali's work.

Local shopping and habor within walking distance.
