Teatro Museo Dalí
The Teatro Museo in Dalí’s hometown Figueres is an absolute eye-catcher with its red walls, golden ornaments and giant dome surrounded by enormous eggs placed on the roof. Dalí wanted this museum to be a surrealist journey through his bizarre world, and definitely succeeded in that aim. One of the most remarkable aspects of this museum is that it was built around the old town’s theatre, below which Salvador Dalí himself is now buried. The museum houses the single largest and most diverse collection of works by the artist; not only paintings and drawings, but also three dimensional installations and collages, mechanical devices and even a marvelous collection of jewelry designed by Dalí. This museum is definitely the first place to go for Dalí-lovers.
Opening hours: 9am – 6pm
