DALI THEATRE – MUSEUM – More than an excursion

May 30, 2014

The Dali Theatre-Museum is the largest surrealistic object in the world. It occupies the building of the former Municipal Theatre, a 19th century construction which was destroyed at the end of the Spanish Civil War. On its ruins, Dali decided to create his museum.

MuseuDaliThe Dali Theatre-Museum of Figueres offers a unique experience of being able to observe, live and enjoy the work and thoughts of a genius. As Dali himself explained: “It’s obvious that other worlds exist, that’s certain; but, as I’ve already said on many other occasions, these other worlds are inside ourselves, they reside in the earth and precisely at the centre of the dome of the Dali Museum, which contains the new, unsuspected and hallucinatory world of Surrealism.”
The different collections managed by the Gala-Salvador Dali Foundation include all kinds of works of art: painting, drawing, sculpture, engraving, installation, hologram, stereoscopy, photography, etc., up to a quantity of some 4,000 pieces. Of these, some 1,500 are on show in the Dali Theatre-Museum of Figueres.
