About the Museum
The Espace Dalí is a permanent exhibition space in France devoted to Salvador Dalí and more particularly to his sculptures and engravings. The museum, near the Place du Tertre in the Montmartre district of Paris, has around 300 original artworks. The collection features three-dimensional sculptures of Dalí's best known surrealistic paintings. Sculptures such as Space Elephant and Alice in Wonderland are presented, and the visitor can also see other aspects such as Moses and monotheism, Memories of Surrealism, Don Quixote.
Music plays in the background, and there are creative workshops for children to give them the opportunity to become familiar with Dalí’s art. Adjacent to the museum are two art galleries: the Galerie Dalí which presents a selection of some of the artist’s works (sculptures, engravings and lithographs), and the Galerie Montmartre, which shows the works of several contemporary artists.
