The 3 museums of Dalí

In the so-called "Dalí Triangle" there are 3 different museums that are all worth visiting. To get you started we have listed them for you below:

The Teatro Museo Dalí is the largest museum where he lived and also died during the last years of his life. Tickets can be purchased at the door, or ordered online.

TIP: Dalí by Night; In the month of August, this museum is also open at night. Highly recommended!

The Casa-Museu Salvador Dalí is a museum in Port Lligat (Cadaqués) entirely dedicated to the artist's life. It is located in a villa where he lived for many years, and many of his works were created here. Reservations are required!

The Castell Casa-Museu Gala Dalí is located in Púbol, (Baix Empordà region - Girona) In this medieval castle, Dalí's creative efforts were focused on 1 single person, his wife and muse Gala. The intention was to offer her a unique refuge and resting place. Gala is buried in this castle.

Tip: Also fun with the kids!

Salvador Dalí was an eccentric artist with a long curly mustache. But was he a genius? Or a complete idiot? Melting watches, a telephone in the shape of a lobster or a sofa formed by big red lips; Dalí's work is a bit "crazy" which also appeals greatly to children!
