DALI MUSEUM

June 9, 2020

We know many of you are limiting travel during these uncertain times.  Although we continue to feature trips and places to visit, we are not encouraging you to visit them until it is safe.  We want to support Florida's attractions and businesses during this situation, and hope you will plan to visit them when things get better.  In the meantime, enjoy them virtually from the comfort of your home.

Art connoisseur or not, you will be enthralled by this St. Petersburg Florida tourist attraction which pays tribute to the czar of surrealism, Salvador Dali.

Dali is best known for his dreamlike paintings in which he showed people and objects transformed into fantastic images that were often set in deserted landscapes.

Upon entering the Museum you find yourself confronted with Dali's work which can be a real "mind-bender". It's recommended you take a Guided Tour which informs you of the artist's work and what he was trying to convey.

Half the fun is comparing your perception with that of the artist!

Like other Florida tourist attractions, the museum frequently changes what the public is going to see to keep interest at high levels.

While exploring the fascinating gift Shop keep in mind Salvador Dali was a Master of Marketing. His merchandise is to be found nowhere else in the world. You can shop on-line by visiting www.theDali.org/store.

This quote from Salvadora Dali tells you a lot about the man:

"If someday I may die, though it is unlikely, I hope the people in the cafes will say, "Dali has died, but not entirely"."
