Expert review of Salvador Dalí House Museum
Just a short drive from Cadaqués (or a scenic walk), this converted complex of fishermen’s cottages is the smallest and most intimate of the three Dalí museums on the Costa Brava and for my money, the most personal. This is where Dalí and his wife Gala lived for around fifty years and whilst you get a sense of this being a home, there’s nothing remotely ordinary about it. You walk in past a seven foot tall stuffed bear carrying a hand-held photo flash whilst in other rooms there’s a full-size replica of Michelangelo’s David wearing a fencing mask, a den kitted out like a Moroccan tent, assorted stuffed swans and skulls and a wacky, pop art-style swimming pool.
Admission is 10 euros for adults, 8 euros for students, unemployed or OAPs on presentation of relevant id.
Advance booking essential – they won’t let you in unless you’ve booked ahead, ideally a day or two in advance. (Tickets can be booked via the website or they also speak English on the phone.)
