Crammed with iconic buildings, world-class art and a culinary scene steeped in history, Paris is one of the world’s great capitals, overflowing with style, romance, and art de vivre.
This museum in the Montmartre neighbourhood is dedicated to the surrealist artist Salvador Dali, displaying over 300 of his works.
Dali’s art is characterised by his unique blend of dreamlike and bizarre imagery, exploring the realms of the subconscious and the irrational. His works often featured melting clocks, distorted figures, and fantastical landscapes, reflecting his fascination with the subconscious mind and the exploration of the human psyche. His creativity also extended beyond the art world as he collaborated with filmmakers, designed sets, and even dabbled in fashion and jewellery design.
He lived in France throughout the Spanish Civil War (1936 to 1939) before leaving for the United States in 1940 where he achieved commercial success.
When to do it
The museum is open all year round, seven days a week.
