What will I see?

No matter what you know already, this provocative surrealist painter will surprise you. The genius of Salvador Dalí was cultivated in L’Empordà and Costa Brava terrain, in the centre of which is his Figueres, his birthplace and home to the Dalí Theatre-Museum.

The Dalí Museum

The Dalí Theatre-Museum of Figueres offers a unique experience of being able to observe, live and enjoy the work and thought of one of the most extraordinary minds of the 20th century. It contains the broadest range of works spanning the artistic career of Salvador Dalí (1904-1989), from his earliest artistic experiences and his surrealist creations down to the works of the last years of his life.

Salvador Dalí decided, early in the 1960’s, to construct his museum inside the ruins of the old Municipal Theatre of Figueres which had been destroyed in the Civil War. Everything in it was conceived and designed by the artist in order to offer visitors a real experience of getting inside his captivating and unique world. Therefore, the Dalí Theatre-Museum has to be seen as a whole, as the great work of Salvador Dalí.

Booked prior to Barcelona visit. Transfer from hotel to Barcelona Sant Station was on time, and hotel reception had already been informed of departure time. My wife and I were picked up in good time and told exactly where to wait for our guide while we waited for the other party to arrive. The train was a high-speed TGV which was comfortable and very fast and arrived in Figueres exactly on time- 55 mins- and the previous stop is where tour guide, Jessica, met us. We were transported by minibus to the museum (10 minutes max) where Jessica took us around and explained in great detail Dali's fantastic museum and a lot about his quirky, complicated personality. Jessica was obviously very passionate about this man's life and work, and was a great bonus for people like ourselves who know a little about him and his work. Would always recommend an English- speaking guide with such depth of knowledge. We also had another hour or so to tour the museum on our own including the jewellery display rooms which were equally impressive. Everything ran like clockwork and we were back in Barcelona by 1:40PM, still had time for lunch and the rest of the day to tour other sites. Would highly recommend this visit.

It was wonderful because of our guide Jessica C. She was incredibly knowledgeable and so well organized. She helped us see all the highlights of the Dalí Museum and manage the crowds. She made the experience a joy.
Jessica brought Girona alive for us. We would have never understood the depth of the history had it not been for her knowledge.
Thank you for making our trip to Figueres and Girona a great experience.

“Bellissima e consigliata!” 5/5 stars
Jessica, the guide, was good at getting us talking about Dali private details. Stupendous theater museum and everything that goes around Dali. Heavy tour starts very early but it is to come back for lunch time in Barcelona. 55 min by train to go and 55 return, and about two hours and three quarters for the museum. For fans, super recommended and 5 stars for Jessica!

"Superb experience". 5/5 stars
If you’re considering visiting the Dali Theater-Museum in Figueres on a day trip from Barcelona, I highly recommend doing it through Barcelona Guide Bureau’s “Dali Museum Trip By High-Speed Train.” Promptly at 7:30 the morning of your tour, a BGB driver picks you up at your hotel and whisks you to the train station, where you board the most comfortable train on earth, enjoy the scenery, then arrive at the Dali Museum just as it opens. Our guide, Jessica, was personable, organized, knowledgeable and passionate about her subject. Speaking through BGB’s quality radio-guide system, she offered insights into Dali’s psychology and vision that deepened our understanding of his imaginative work. I’m not usually one for museum tours, preferring to explore on my own terms, but this museum gets very crowded very early, so BGB’s flawless logistics and Jessica’s concise guidance provided a perfect solution for us. We were back in Barcelona by lunch!

“The Dali train trip was well orchestrated.” 5/5 stars
Our trip was carefully executed and no detail left to chance. The taxi was prompt and efficient, Carla a d Claudia were welcoming and carefully explained the procedure. Laura boarded the train the stop prior to our stop and led up the rest of the way. Laura was always pleasant and taught us so much more than we could have otherwise learned. I recommend this excursion to everyone.

"Salvador Dali Museum." 5/5 stars

We really enjoy our tour to the Dali Museum. The guide was very entertaining and gave us a very good idea of Salvador Dali's personality and life's work. She made us laugh with her tongue in cheek humor! Salvador Dali designed this very quirky and immersive museum making it quite entertaining.

We had a wonderful time. Jessica is a fantastic guide. I know she must have to go through the same material over and over, but she managed to make everything sound fresh and exciting. She provided many lively anecdotes and gave me a new perspective on Dali.

Everything was exceptionally organised by your group and it was a great tour. You were recommended by an Australian friend who did the tour a year ago. She was certainly right and we will highly recommend your tour to everyone.

Terrific tour! We live near the St Petersburg, USA, Dali Museum and are members. Today's guide, Jessica, was one of the best we've had in a lifetime of travel and visiting art.

Thank You all for smooth arrangements and very fine guiding.

"One of the best!" 5/5 stars

We decided to book this tour as we would be back in Barcelona by 1.30pm and all other tours to the Dali museum took a whole day. We were picked up by taxi from our hotel at 7.30am and taken to the train station where we were met by a representative of the company who made sure we boarded the correct train. We went by high speed train to Figures where our guide Jessica met us and gave us one of the best experiences we have had with guides!

Organizing a guide for this museum is a must, as the whole place comes to life in greater depth as we shared Jessica's passion for Dali, his life, perspective on life and work – particularly useful as my husband was totally clueless about Dali and usually adverse to visiting 'arty' museums – he has now become a fan! Our guide's anecdotal stories really brought this place to life! We highly recommend this tour.

"Dalí Museum Tour" 5/5 stars

What a well-organized tour! Our taxi picked us up at the hotel at the time set and we were met at the train station by Carla. She showed us where to get coffee and some snacks, as we requested and then escorted us to the security line for our train. She explained exactly what we would experience at the station and on the train. She handed us our tickets and we were off.

The fast train only stopped once before arriving and that's where our guide, Jessica, got on and introduced herself. We met our driver who took us the short distance from the station to the museum.

The museum and the separate room of jewels were both included in our ticket purchase. They are both stunning and to listen to Jessica describe Dali, Gala and all that was going on at the time was such a treat. For instance, the story behind the diving suit perched on top of the museum is something I'd never heard before and shed light on Dali and his genius. Dali wanted this museum to house only things by himself and those he respected that he thought were worthy. I think he got it right!

Not being familiar with train travel in Spain, we really appreciated the door to door service. This is a well-run operation with the right attention to detail!
