The Building

The Building

    • Front Entrance
    • “As you arrive your breath is taken away by the beautiful exterior and interior of this building, and that is before you see the collection.” –Visitor Comment
    • Eastside View of the Enigma
    • The Enigma is homage to the Geodesic dome Dali placed over his own Theatre-Museum, in Figueres, Spain.
    • Waterfront View of The Dali Museum
    • The Museum is located on the Tampa Bay waterfront in the picturesque setting of downtown St. Petersburg, FL
    • Tom and Mary James Family Wing
    • The James Family Wing houses 8 galleries featuring an unparalleled collection of Salvador Dali works.
    • Hough Family Wing
    • The Hough Wing houses special exhibitions and is redesigned to accommodate each unique show.
    • The Gardens
    • The Dali Museum Avant-gardens were inspired both by local flora and by Dali’s fascination with duality, art, and nature. The Avant-gardens consist of the West Garden, the Grotto, and the East Garden.
    • Math in the Gardens
    • Dali loved the irrational number Pi and was fascinated by the way mathematics reveals a hidden order in the world.
    • The Labyrinth
    • The Labyrinth was modeled after the labyrinth at the Chartres Cathedral; one can enter heading toward the center and then around each quadrant of the labyrinth circle to arrive in the center.
    • This is The Dali
    • The Dali is a destination in which you will be surrounded by the works of the renowned artist Salvador Dali, a place to enjoy an afternoon wandering through the awe-inspiring building and interactive gardens.

The original Dali Museum opened in St. Petersburg in 1982, after community leaders rallied to bring the Morses’ superlative collection of Dali works to the area. The Dali’s stunning new building opened on January 11, 2011. Designed by architect Yann Weymouth of HOK, it combines the rational with the fantastical: a simple rectangle with 18-inch thick hurricane-proof walls out of which erupts a large free-form geodesic glass bubble known as the “enigma”. The Enigma, which is made up of 1,062 triangular pieces of glass, stands 75 feet at its tallest point, a twenty-first century homage to the dome that adorns Dali’s museum in Spain. Inside, the Museum houses another unique architectural feature – a helical staircase – recalling Dali’s obsession with spirals and the double helical shape of the DNA molecule.

On the waterfront of Tampa Bay, The Dali’s garden creates a unique environment of learning and tranquility. The Mathematical Garden allows students to experience the relationship between math and nature, and a labyrinth in the southeast corner invites exploration and well-being.

First Floor
Visitors enter through The Dali Museum Store, featuring the largest collection of Dali-inspired merchandise in the world. Café Gala offers Spanish-themed light fare with both indoor and outdoor seating. The theater regularly shows a short film about Dali and the Museum and is also the setting for concerts and lectures. Children and adults can take classes or participate in making art in the Classroom. The Raymond James Community Room is a space for conferences, weddings and other private events.
