The Salvador Dalí Museum

With the exception of the Dalí Theater-Museum created by Dalí himself in his home town of Figueres, Catalonia, Spain. The Salvador Dalí museum, located in St. Petersburg, Florida, houses the largest collection of his works. A few years ago I was fortunate to check it out and it turned out to be a wonderful experience not only for the chance to see some of Salvador’s works of course but also for the beautiful architecture which houses them. The museum was designed by Yann Weymouth of the architectural firm HOK. It features a large glass entryway and skylight made of 1.5 inch thick glass. Referred to as the “Enigma,” the glass entryway is 75 feet tall and encompasses a spiral staircase which ends up pointing towards the skylight which itself is reminiscent of “Santiago El Grande” another one of his masterpieces. The overall truly blends well with the Dalí universe and is definitely worth experiencing.
