Just two hours outside Barcelona is the hometown of Surrealist artist Salvador Dalí. A scenic walk from the train station takes you to a museum of his work, entirely designed by him. The result is a labyrinth of exhibition spaces that are as shocking and fascinating as the works, themselves.
Highlights include an actual room as depicted in his painting, Mae West’s Face which May be Used as a Surrealist Apartment, an exterior covered in eggs and croissants, as well as the famed Galatea of the Scrolls and Venus de Milo aux trioirs. The Dalí Theater-Museum in Figueres, Spain is well worth a visit for fans of Dalí or anyone looking for a unique museum experience.
