Holy smokes.
To state my biases straight out, I'm not a huge museum guy -- call me what you will, but if it's not the Met in NY, the British Museum, or the Louvre, and it's not raining cats & dogs, I'd much rather do something (anything) else, particularly if it's a museum devoted to a single artist, which is usually a much larger display of ego than of art.
But WOW!
The Dali Museum is simply overwhelming, and you must go, even if you hate museums or surrealism or both.
There are many famous works, including the monumental "Rainy Cadillac" (Dali's '41 Caddy convertible with a fat lady on the hood, dummy passengers getting rained on inside, and a boat on a flagpole high overhead); the Palace of the Wind room with its magnificent ceiling fresco; and the ever popular Mae West room; but in a sense the Museum as a whole is itself a work of art -- maybe even Dali's masterpiece -- because it, and everything in it, was conceived and designed by the artist himself as a collective sensory experience -- a Cliff's Notes of surrealism, if you will. Dali literally gave this project his "all" -- he's buried here, and his grave lies among the exhibits!
Don't forget the jewelry collection (included in admission price) -- not really jewelry so much as sculpture using gold & precious stones as the media of expression -- magnificent stuff.
There is little other reason to visit Figueres, IMO, but this museum is more than enough reason all by itself.
Stay at the El Moli bed-and-breakfast nearby (see my review), and drink it all in. It's an experience simply not to be missed.
