Dali’s Museum in Figueres opened in 1974 after an extensive remodeling and refurbishment of a former abandoned theater.
At the Dalí Museum, you’ll discover that all the works, paintings, and objects displayed there were chosen by Dalí, to offer future visitors an unforgettable and surrealist experience. But it’s not just the inside that’s his creation, on the outside squares surrounding the museum you can see some unique sets of sculptures designed by him. The peculiar transparent rectangular-shaped dome that crowns the building has become an icon and emblem of the city of Figueres. Dalí spent his last years living at Torre Galatea, a round structure just next to the museum. And he’s buried there too; you can see his grave from two different places inside the museum.
Hundreds of thousands of visitors from all over the world visit it every year, and having an expert guide will ensure that you get the maximum enjoyment out of this magical place. Our guides will lead you through the museum, making sure you see Abraham Lincoln’s face, the furniture set up that becomes Mae West’s face if you look at it through a lens, the “Palau del vent,” a room with Dalí’s version of the Sistine Chapel, and much more.
It’s quite a big museum, so don’t worry if we skip a few minor works. Of course, visiting the Dalí Museum in Figueres with a licensed guide means that you’ll have Priority Access.
Before leaving we’ll have some time for a light bite in Figueres.

Figueres with AVE (high-speed train).
We are working to offer as many tours as possible using public transportation, trying to help as much as possible. Figueres is reachable with our high-speed train, and it does not take longer than driving (avoiding traffic during rush hours). The train leaves from Sants (the main train station in Barcelona) and arrives at Figueres in 50 m approx) we then need a quick taxi ride to reach the Museum.
We visit the Museum, and afterward, we can take a nice walk around the city and have a nice lunch before returning to Barcelona.
Let us know your interest in taking the Train option, and we’ll calculate the price for you ( train tickets cost might change during the year).
