The attraction for some is not the contents of the building but the building itself. Unique in design and acclaimed by most the architecture is most impressive. If you are fascinated with Dali or love surrealism it is the place for you. In addition, the museum is walking distance from the downtown area, easy to find with well place signs.

I absolutely adored it! I went with my aunt and we love art, just the outside was stunning! Whenever we walk on we found this giant spiral staircase that lead up to the paintings and inventions. It was just amazing! There was also a really nice restaurant and gift shop. For people who love art, I recommend this place 100℅!reccomend

Great way to spend a couple of hours.
The cafe is disappointing in their service, prices and taste. We could not drink the coffee it was so awful.
Everything else was nice when we went in June 2015. No workers were disrespectful nor ignoring us. We are a mixed race couple and had no problems. Actually everyone was very helpful and courteous to us.
We decided to purchase a one year membership & are very happy with our benefits.

I had to pay $10 for parking and then $24 for the entrance fee. This is definitely one of the most expensive museums I've ever been to, considering that I've visited the best ones in New York and other major U.S. cities. There were guided tours in the upper gallery that has all of Dali's paintings. This is a great option if you don't want to carry around a traditional audio guide with you. The gardens around the museum are beautiful with some cool structures inspired by Dali's own physical appearance like a mustache statue and some of his painting...Read More

I was so disappointed and disgusted with the way me and my friend was treated, she's in town and wanted to see the exhibit, but the way the audio recording guy acted as if we weren't standing there and just skipped over us, showed how ignorant he was, I've been to the Dali museum before and never been disrespected like that (Overall the Dali is a great museum) needs new staff who respects people of all race, religion, and culture.
