Daytrip - Figueres Tips (17)

Salvador Dali Museum in Figueres

I've got (or will have shortly) most of the information and pictures of this fabulous museum of art in my Figueres pages. I usually hate art museums, but this one was special. Dali had a unique style that impressed even me, the art unenthusiast. If you're going to do one artsy thing, make this the one.

Figueres is just a little bit more than an hour from Barcelona by car. Many tour busses make the trip each day. Most likely you can easily arrive by bus or train as well, but we had a car. By car, follow the E-15 (tollway) or N-11 (the local) north, then follow the signs to the city center.

Salvador Dali Museum in Figueres

The Salvador Dali Museum in Figueres is really spectacular. With 21 rooms of his work, including some which are very large, it is impossible not to be fascinated. I usually don't like to do too many things like this, and I admit the museum was very crowded after the tour busses came, but this isn't to be missed.

Salvador Dali lived and partially worked in and around Figueres. Very few people would fail to recognize the work I show here, with the dead clocks. Although he packs his work in symbolism, I don't really care. I FEEL when I look at a Dali, sometimes several different emotions at once. When you look at something and feel emotion, you're looking at art.

Train trip to Salvador Dali

I LOVE Salvador Dali. I have been to the museum in Florida and I have always wanted to go to the original museum in Spain. Since we had an entire day to kill, we decided to hop on the train and head out to Figueres. It felt like it took forever to get there, but I think it was less than 2 hours. The town is in the middle of nowhere and there wasn't anything else to do there except visit the museum. You know you're getting close when you start seeing the Dali statues around. The museum was huge, much bigger than the one in Florida, I guess that should be obvious since Dali had a hand in designing the museum. I typically hate museums but I Love Dali and there is so much more to see here than just paintings. Well, worth the trip. I bought a bunch of souvenirs from the gift shop before leaving.

Teatre-Museu Dali

If you are planning to visit the Dali teatre-museu in Figueres, you can't really plan ahead unless you're in a big group - unfortunately the website will only allow group booking (of 25 people or more). It's weird because it will let you book in smaller numbers for some of the other Dali museums, but not that one.

But a lack of tickets shouldn't be a problem... when I went with a friend a couple of summers ago, we just turned up and queued for a while and it wasn't a problem that we didn't have a ticket in advance. However, it was big queue so be prepared to wait; we were there for over an hour, but it was the middle of summer, so I guess it might vary throughout the year?

As the museum closes at 5:15pm (and some of the rooms start to close a little before that time), I would recommend getting there before lunch rather than afterwards, so you have time to get round it all. The other bonus is that if you aim to get into the museum at around lunchtime, a lot of families with small children will have left to eat - when I went there were tons of kids! We took a snack and some drinks for while we waited in the queue - there is a supermarket quite near the bus station. so there's no need to carry snacks all the way from Barcelona if you're on a day trip!

The museum is less than 15 minutes walk from the train and bus stations.

Don;t forget to take a student card / pensioner's ID if you have it as you can get money off the ticket price.

A Great Place for Dali Fans

This is a great museum for any fan of Dali. It showcases his work from various stages of his life and when we got a ticket we also got admission to the jewelry museum right next door. That was also an amazing museum to visit. There were his designs sketched out along w/ the actual piece of jewelry produced based on his designs. Spectacular!

well worth the trip

We took a tourist bus to see the Salvador Dali museu. It is a must see if you are going to Barcelona. The art is incredible.
On the way our bus stopped in Girona and a guide showed us around the city. It was a very pleasant stop and great way to break up the bus ride.

Hello Dali !

A popular day trip from Barcelona is to Figueres to visit the Dali Museum. I traveled there from Girona, not directly from Barcelona, but I understand it's a bit over an hour by train. From the train station it's about a 10 min. walk through town to the museum.

It's well worth the trip, even if you're not that farmiliar with Dali's works. Even the building itself is a work of art, and once inside , there are several floors of his works, and a courtyard that houses some of his sculpures.

Salvador Dali Museum, Figueres

Figueres, the birthplace of Dalí. This is where he built his own Museum in the Dalí style.

Dali wrote, "In Barcelona, you will eat the best fish of the Mediterranean. Add to this the true art of preparing dishes, which I do not hesitate to call philosophic and Homeric."

Figueres - Teatro-museu Dali

Teatro-museu Dali is definately a must see when you're around in Catalunya. You can take the train from Barcelona to Figueres. It takes you about 1,5 hour by train.

Teatro-museu Dali is so much more than a museum. Can you think of any museum where you can actually walk on a camel, look through a loop and see the image of Mae West? In Teatro-museu Dali you can. The building is wonderful and the paintings and scupltures are marvellous.

Besides the museum there is nothing much to do in Figurueres.

It can be quite crowded in the museum. I heard that it´s the second most visited museum in Spain (after the Prado in Madrid).

Oh, you might wonder why I putted a picture of this statue by my Figueres tip. That´s because this statue stands in Figueres in a little park and it SQUINTS terribly!! We had a great laugh. The first time I went there I thought we saw it wrong because we drank too much Catalan Rose, but the second time I took this picture to prove it: he actually squints. That´s the story behind the picture, fascinating huh? ;-P
