Really Enjoyable Short Visit

Lovely house, brilliant sculptures, particularly liked what I would term the "Colonial Room" - need to see it to understand.

This is a very luxurius apartment with view of the sea and the cathedral. On the patio there are sculptures displayed, inside antique furniture and splendid antique rooms. Don't miss the trompe l'oeiul with the circus acts

This is a place you should visit to see a Dali collection and a most wonderful toy representation of X-mas. You can also see some living space of a wealthy family of the mid-XX century.

Some nice sculptures in the courtyard, staged rooms from when it was a private residence, although nothing that I could see to describe its history. A couple of rooms of lavishly detailed nativity scenes and Dali prints.

The museum has sculptures and artwork, but the nativities are unbelievably beautiful. The details are amazing. We spent hours looking at the various rooms. The building itself has gorgeous details inside. You need to spend time and look in every nook and cranny.

Amazing nativity collections with remarkable detail - probably world class and modern sculpture! Beautiful proportioned rooms and stunning views!

We felt this attraction was poor. On the plus side, great views and some nice sculptures in courtyard. Some displays and nativity mannequins/dolls and second rate Dali artwork.

The Palau itself is a lovely building with an amazing terrace to the front where large sculptures by people like Barbara Hepworth and Auguste Rodin are well placed. Inside there are some of Salvador Dali's uniquely-styled paintings plus the most unusual but beautifully detailed nativity figures in several tableaux - these alone are worth the entrance fee.

The very quiet atmosphere takes you away from the surrounding bursting activity. High ceilings, very good art collection including old maps. Sculptures in the patio outside.
