What Can You See at the Salvador Dali Art Gallery?

Many people are familiar with Dali's paintings, such as The Persistence of Memory, but have no idea that his work goes far beyond just the two-dimensional. At the Figueres museum, you will find everything from Salvador Dali sculptures to exclusive Salvador Dali jewelry. You will leave this attraction with a far deeper understanding of Dali and the wide variety of art he created.

Plus, the museum itself is considered to be a piece of art. It is widely referred to as “the largest surrealist object in the world!” Dali put lots of time and energy into creating this attraction, which opened to the public in September 1974. Inside the museum, you can even find the artist's crypt.

He chose Figueres for the museum's location because it was his hometown. When it first opened, thousands of people celebrated in the streets. Dali sought to make the opening the landmark art event of the decade.

Incidentally, if you are ever in St. Petersburg, Florida, you can see a Salvador Dali museum with the largest collection of his work that is located outside of Europe.

Seeing The Salvador Dali Jewelry Exhibit

After seeing the Salvador Dali Museum in Figueres, be sure to see the separate collection of the jewelry that he created. While many artists overlook jewelry design, it fit right into Salvador Dali's philosophy. He was inspired by architecture, math, physics and even nuclear science. It is more than likely that this will be some of the most memorable jewelry that you have ever seen!

You will have the opportunity to view 39 works that were created between 1941 and 1970. Some even share names with other works of Salvador Dali. For example, there is a piece of jewelry from 1949 called The Persistence of Memory. Another example of Salvador Dali jewelry that you will likely be unable to forget is the Royal Heart, which moves (thanks to a proximity sensor) and looks just like a real beating heart. This mesmerizing piece is made from precious stones and gold.

In addition to Salvador Dali jewelry, there is an impressive collection of sculpture at the museum in Figueres including Mae West Lips Sofa, and Queen Esther. Impressive Salvador Dali sculptures are also scattered across the globe in locations ranging from Florida and Singapore to London and France. These works of Salvador Dali are often located in public spaces, such as parks so that they can be appreciated by all.
