Salvador Dali, the master of surrealism in Paris! Espace Dali, located in the heart of the famous artists' village, Montmartre, exhibits the largest collection of artworks by Salvador Dali in France. Dali as you have never seen before! The collection is the fruit of the emblematic surrealist artist's extravagant inspiration: theatrical sculptures, erotic, dreamlike or irresistibly humorous engravings, poetic objects and furniture, are all part of the phantasmagorical universe of the inventor of soft watches. The multiple facets of the Catalan Master 3D Surrealism Thanks to Dali, everything can be transformed by the magic of dreams: the Space Elephant with spindly legs seems to defy gravity, a watch melts from a branch, a snail spreads its wings and Venus has drawers. Stories and wonders Dali had an encyclopedic culture and was fascinated by major themes from literature, mythology and religion. He used many different techniques to illustrate universal texts: Alice in Wonderland, Romeo and Juliet, Don Quixote, The Bible... As well as more personal works, such as Moses and Monotheism or The Alchemy of the Philosophers. Each book is an art object. Sculptures, drawings, water colors, engravings, lithographs, Espace Dali invites us to explore the main themes of his work: dreams, mythology, sensuality...

This is a hidden little gem. Well worth the ups and downs of the streets to get a visit. Skip the translation headphones. They were more of a bother. All the exhibits had an English description. The souvenir room isn't much. Could easily spend over...More

Yep, this place is mind bending, namely because it show cases a lot of Salvador Dali's art. You can even buy some originals, though don't expect them to be cheap.

You cannot miss going here, despite being small. The collection is impressive and the statues are all the better view up close. Wallet emptying shop in you have room for a piece!

Espace Dali is a gem. A well thought out and organized space. Very different experience from other museums. Fascinating since we are given explanations of the meaning behind various recurring themes in his works. Very worthwhile and enjoyable diversion from the touristy Place du Tertre.

I'm glad we found this little museum in Montmartre. I've always liked dali's works and here with the statues they really came to life. Very interesting pictures and there were good explanations telling some background information. Do yourself a favour and pay a visit there.

Montmartre
Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colours, and
styles which changes from one street to another. Ride
the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the
steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the
Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The
church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano
bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers
thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy
