The Museum's 20,000 sq ft state-of-the-art gallery spaces allows the full permanent collection of 96 oil paintings, plus a selection of drawings, prints, photographs, videos and Surreal Objects by Salvador Dali to be on display.
Designed by architect Yann Weymouth of HOK, the museum building combines the rational with the fantastical: a simple rectangle with 18-inch thick hurricane-proof walls from which erupts a large free-form 75-foot tall geodesic bubble known as the enigma, made up of 1,062 triangular pieces of glass. An interior helical staircase recalls Dali’s obsession with spirals.
