  • The Dali Museum is an enlightening experience that is a fantastic tourist destination. With over a hundred pieces from surrealism in drawing to portrayal of life through rocks there is beauty in everything Dali does. I particularly like the surreal drawings. There is his famous wall to wall painting of a naked girl that from far away is the portrait of Abraham Lincoln. This is a wonderful museum for art lovers and non art lovers alike and should be near the top of every list for places to go.
  • I loved this museum. It's a perfect combination of paintings and sculptures/installations. His ideas are truly extraordinary. The museum does get very busy, and even on a Monday in the off season, we had to book a time slot online in advance (so I couldn't use my student discount) and also queue to get in. Go in with an open mind and a sense of humour.
