For anyone with a slightest interest in art, surrealism or Dali himself, the museum in Figures simply has to be on the 'to-do' list whilst visiting Catalonia. Words and superlatives cannot convey what a unique experience it is to take a step inside the world and mind of one of the most influential surrealists of recent times, and the museum... More

recommend to buy tickets online, because otherwise you can spend an hour in a line. Museum is awesome, very well structured. But unfortunately too many people which are just taking pictures of them selfs and not enjoying the art. So if you can afford to visit it on other time, please do it.

I hadn't heard of this museum, though perhaps I should have since Dali is one of my favorites. It's perfect. It's him. It's whimsical, it's light, it's dark, it's beautiful, it's so unique. We went on the way to Cadaques, had lunch and spent a couple of hours at the museum. Well worth a little drive from wherever you were/are... More

What a revelation this trip was! This was a full day trip from Barcelona and although it took some time getting there, it was well worth it. We were astounded at how forward-thinking Dali was and had no idea of how much he has contributed to hte art world and the world in general. 3D paintings before 3D was even... More

Seeing so many examples of the genius of Dali in one location is a truly memorable experience!!! I highly recommend a tour as it seems the line for those entering as individuals was several blocks long! His works are so varied that even those who normally dislike museums will enjoy a visit!

This is a good place to visit for Dali aficionados. The idea of a museum inside of a theater is really cool. We saw a lot of art that we'd seen before, but also some things we'd never seen. It was really cool to be able to explore Dali's art from a 3D perspective as well. The museum is crowded... More

I was traveling with my 25 year old grandson. When he was 13 we were in London together and stumbled on an exhibit of small Dali pen and ink drawings. There began his connection to Dali. So it was special that when we decided to meet in Spain, we were able to visit the museum in Figueres. Almost everyone who... More

Extravagant artist, extravagant building and such an amazing, so much different experience than in any other place in the world. The room of Mae West is much of surprise and very worth seeing also from top through the glass. Good museum from beginning to the end where I love Dalí's picture Research of the Fourth Dimension. Highly recommended to all... More

The Dali museum was really enjoyable, more than many others I've been. There is so much variety in his work, and so many small details to see that could easily be potentially missed. My only gripe with the experience was that the amount of tourists pushing their way through made it a bit difficult to appreciate those details. All in... More
