AAA Editor Notes
The Dalí Museum, jct. Bayshore Dr. S.E. and 5th Ave. S.E. at 1 Dalí Blvd., houses an unparalleled collection of Spanish artist Salvador Dalí's art; more than 2,000 works, comprising nearly 100 oil paintings, eight of which are Dalí masterworks. A geodesic glass sculpture (nicknamed The Enigma), made of 1,062 triangular-shaped glass pieces, sinuously wraps around a portion of the exterior. The museum’s Avant-Garden is comprised of a subtropical grotto, a hedge labyrinth, a wish tree and a stone patio.

Inside, a helical spiral staircase climbs to the third floor where two exhibition galleries are located. The James Family Wing holds the permanent collection and the Hough Family Wing hosts all special exhibitions. The Dali Museum’s preeminent collection represents every moment and medium of Dali’s creative life. Paintings range from small impressionistic works to gigantic surrealistic montages. Sculptures, prints, photographs and other objects illustrate Dalí's artistic diversity. In addition to the extensive permanent collection, the museum showcases frequent special exhibitions curated from top worldwide collections. The museum also features a children's education classroom, a theater, family programs and special events.
