Salvador Dali, the master of surrealism in Paris!

Espace Dali, located in the heart of the famous artists' village, Montmartre, exhibits the largest collection of artworks by Salvador Dali in France.

Dali as you have never seen before!

The collection is the fruit of the emblematic surrealist artist's extravagant inspiration: theatrical sculptures, erotic, dreamlike or irresistibly humorous engravings, poetic objects and furniture, are all part of the phantasmagorical universe of the inventor of soft watches.

The multiple facets of the Catalan Master

3D Surrealism

Thanks to Dali, everything can be transformed by the magic of dreams: the Space Elephant with spindly legs seems to defy gravity, a watch melts from a branch, a snail spreads its wings and Venus has drawers.

Stories and wonders

Dali had an encyclopedic culture and was fascinated by major themes from literature, mythology and religion. He used many different techniques to illustrate universal texts: Alice in Wonderland, Romeo and Juliet, Don Quixote, The Bible... As well as more personal works, such as Moses and Monotheism or The Alchemy of the Philosophers.

Each book is an art object.

Sculptures, drawings, water colors, engravings, lithographs, Espace Dali invites us to explore the main themes of his work: dreams, mythology, sensuality...

This little museum is a bit tucked away, but well worth the visit. They've done a good job incorporating the work of Dali. Once you get to the museum, you're also offered an alternative (yet fabulous) view of Paris. Surrounding area is work exploring as well, so do allow a couple of hours for your visit.

If you love the work of this surrealist artist, Dali, you will love this place. Ever since I watched the movie 'little ashes' it has been my dream to visit one of his museums. This was great!

So I have to preface this by saying the following. I really enjoy the work of Salvador Dali, and they did a great job of incorporating the history of his work into their exhibitions. That being said, at €11,50 a ticket, it's a bit steep for what it provides. There are only a few artworks, a few illustrations, and it... More

This is an interesting museum in Montmartre, dedicated to the art of Salvador Dali. The audio guide really helped to make sense of it- it really deals with his philosophy, and with his feelings about Catholicism and physics, and also about his own personal difficulties. It helped paint his art (as it were) in a new light. The sculptures are... More

I guess it’s somewhat fitting that this museum is found a bit off the beaten path, somewhat reflective of Dali’s aura in general. Fortunately Montmartre is small enough and the route is sign-posted sufficiently to make a journey here somewhat easy in the end. I visited during my last full day in the city, walking through a few minutes before... More

An amazing exhibition of Dali's works, including glassware and scultpure, painting, drawings and even the LobsterPhone! Spent about 2hrs in here, and spent some hefty money in the gift shop! Can be difficult to find, but so very worth it when you make the effort.

I adore Dali, and was excited to visit this exhibit in Paris. Extensive advertising around the area and at the venue promised a large range of original works. We went in to find not a single original Dali, but work from an artist inspired by Dali. We went straight back out, thinking we had gone into the wrong room, and... More

Very disappointing experience. No original artwork, only a couple of representations of his concepts. I do not recommend it. I am a big fan on Dali, the only interesting and fun things were the texts written next to each object. Save your time and see something else.

No originals, even got rid of the copies and sculptures they used to have on display. Disorganized and tiny. It's quirky but don't go if you're here for Dali.

Staying in Montmartre

Neighbourhood Profile
Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colours, and styles which changes from one street to another. Ride the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy features shops not intended for young audiences, while residences are scattered to the north and east. The diverse population includes a large part from the Arab-speaking world, Africa, and Turkey. It’s a corner of Paris full of life and dynamism with charms that can’t be found anywhere else.
