“Groups visiting The Dalí will enjoy a unique and unforgettable experience,” said Kathy Greif, chief marketing officer at The Dalí Museum. “In addition to the galleries, visitors to The Dalí enjoy the museum’s Avant-garden, an outdoor environment of learning and tranquility. The museum store features artfully inspired jewelry, apparel and books. Cafe Gala offers Spanish-themed light fare and beverages. A theater plays an introductory film on Dalí and the museum throughout the day.”

Dalí was a prominent Spanish artist, known for his fierce, yet unusual and bizarre paintings and sculptures. The museum’s collection boasts more than 2,100 of Dalí’s works spread across different mediums, including prints, sculptures, photos, drawings, manuscripts and oil paintings. It is the largest collection of Dalí’s work outside of Europe.

“The Dalí protects and displays an unparalleled collection of Salvador Dalí artworks,” Greif said. “We welcome the public, educate and promote enjoyment. In a larger sense, The Dalí is a place of beauty dedicated, as is Dalí’s art, to understanding and transformation.” 

The museum’s building is an intricate work of art on its own. Featuring 1,062 triangular-shaped glass panels, it’s nicknamed the “Enigma” for giving an unrivaled view of St. Petersburg’s gleaming waterfront.

Tours of The Dalí last about one hour, and discounted rates are offered for a maximum of 30 students, which includes three free adult admissions. Complimentary docent-led tours are provided based on availability for student groups, and customized tours are offered.

School lunches are available for purchase from the museum’s cafe and can be ordered prior to visits. Motorcoaches may drop students off at the entrance of The Dalí. Parking is available at the east end of the museum’s parking lot.
