Tripadvisor lists "Dali17," "Museum of Monterey" and "Stanton Center" at 5 Custom House Plaza. All are the same, with a permanent exhibit of Dali, and most recent reviews are at Dali17. Powerful images, and not just the stereotypical Dali. It's even more mysogynistic than most...More

Right now they have a Dali exhibit.. not sure if it is permanent or temporary.. Although I have seen the one in Spain and another country, this museum added quite a bit of stuff that I had never seen... surreal mind ;-)

Nice exhibit. Was not aware of his connection to Monterey. Not really my cup of tea but enjoyed the various themes and styles
