About
Delve into the surreal world of Salvador Dali, one of the most ingenious and eccentric artists of the 20th century. The museum gives visitors with more than 450 exhibits from private collectors worldwide one of the most extensive insight into Dali's virtuosic & experimental mastery in almost all art techniques, directly in the centre of Berlin. "COME INTO MY BRAIN", Salvador Dali called upon the masses. The permanent exhibition shows works in which he shot with muskets on massive lithostones and invented the Bulletism or artworks where he let explode nail-filled bombs or drove a steamroller over a sewing machine. To facilitate the visitors the way into this fascinating world Dali_Scouts will guide visitors conversationally through the museum in public guided tours which are held almost hourly. Open daily (Mon–Sun): Jan–Jun 12 pm – 8 pm |Jul–Aug 10 am – 8 pm | Sep–Dec 12 pm – 8 pm (last entry 7 pm / Dec 24th closed) Public Guided Tours: 12:30 pm | 2 pm | 3:30 pm | 5:00 pm | 6:30 pm

Could be better if not for all the hidden costs
Sep. 2021 • Solo
Interesting collection, lots of illustrations and lithographs. Downsides were that there is no information provided throughout the exhibition and you have to pay extra for a small guidebook which only gives general information. Also, you have to pay €2 if you want to take photos. Kind of a rip off.

Nothing but prints
Sep. 2021
Not paying tribute to the great artist. Poor choice and quality of work presented. Too many small prints on walls in small rooms.

Disappointing experience
Sep. 2021 • Couples
You need to pay for the picture. No explanation so you also have to buy the guide of the exhibition. One room was closed. Overall disappointed. There are better things to visit while in Berlin.

Avoid this place !
Jul. 2021
AVOID :A total ripoff . You buy your ticket on-line, but when you get there the shake down begins. The museum has no info posted about any artwork or The artist, so you have to buy a tiny booklet with tiny print if you want to learn anything before you go in ( I believe 4 Euros). Then , they force you to check in your hand back, so another 1 Euro. And then, they have “ no photos” policy and if you want to take photos, you need to pay another 2Euros . Louvre doesn’t do any of this and trust me, this is not Louvre( even though it costs about the same ). The museum has mostly sketches and is hard to enjoy because it is not curated, you learn and understand little without pausing and trying to find any info I
Ina very basic booklet. Totally disappointing and dishonest place

Not worth the price
Oct. 2020 • Friends
The exhibition in itself is good, but god how everything was so expensive!
First you pay your ticket and the price was ok (12,50€). But then we took the additional explanation tour since there is no written explains in the museum that was 9€.
And the tour wasn’t good like, the person only explained us 3 pieces so didn’t make much of a difference.
If you want to take picture you pay an additional fee of 2€ ! I’ve never saw a museum that made you pay to be able to take photos inside.
And since it’s winter we needed a locker for our coats, and it was also 1€. In every museum that I went in Berlin this services was free.
And I mean it’s not the price that bothered me but just the fact that they made you pay for it. Not really a customer friendly approach.
Would not recommend for the price.

Inside the head of a genius
Oct. 2020 • Solo
I really enjoyed experiencing Dali and his art in the way it's presented. Dali might seem insane to you and his point of view might disturb you a couple of times, but for me, he just expressed his feelings and experiences in his very own way. I would totally recommend going to this exhibition, and take your time to study his art. I would also recommend booking a guide to get a much deeper inside of his art.

A capitalist take on an incredible artist.
Aug. 2020 • Solo
A full on scam with quite expensive tickets for such a simple exhibition, then includes extra payments required for ‘taking pictures’ and putting your baggage in the bag/coat check. Simply a capitalist take on an incredible artist and a sheer excuse to profit off of anything.

Dear 453nourh, thank you for your visit in our Museum. We would like to explain some of your defamatory points. We are one of the three official museums of the world dedicated exclusively to Salvador Dalí. As a privately run museum without any financial aid by the governement or any foundation we're really proud that we're able to show more than 450 original exhibits by Salvador Dalí in the heart of Berlin with the focus on his diversity of his whole body of work, e.g. lithographs, dry point etchings, xylographs, sculptures, movies, books, photographs and more. We have to take a 2€ for photos as a nominal fee due to copyright issues. Otherwise we have to forbid photos completely which is neither in our nor in your interest. To use the cloakroom or lockers is an extra service and, as in many other museums and cultural institutions, those extras have to be charged. Best regards, your Team DalíBerlin

What a rip off
Jul. 2020 • Solo
This place is such a dissapointment. It was mainly drawings, and no paintings on canvas. I’m sure it was copys, I had seen one of them in the amazing Dali museum in Barcelona. It is rubbish, don’t waste Your money on this

Dear Bettina J, first of all, thank you very much for your visit in our museum and the time you spend for your review, which we can not quite understand. Is is a pity that you do not appreciate the high quality of the exhibited works. The museum gives one of the most comprehensive overviews of Salvador Dali's extremely varied, surreal works in almost all techniques of art, the focus on his diversity of his whole body of work, e.g. lithographs, dry point etchings, xylographs, sculptures, movies, books and more. However, we have not exhibited any copies. We are one of three official museums in the world that are dedicated monothematically to the artist Salvador Dalí and his work. We are officially recognized as a museum by the ICOM (International Council of Museums), the DMB (Deutscher Museumsbund) and the Berlin Senate. Each of these three Dalí museums shows different emphases in the manifold work of this exceptional artist. The curatorial focus of our permanent exhibition is to show the versatility of his work and Salvador Dalí's virtuoso mastery in almost all techniques. your Team DalíBerlin

A let down

Quite unspectacular postsurrealism(?) selection of Dali's work. Uninspired venue, many lithographies, best suited for true fans of Dali

Great visit

The tour guide was super interesting and helpful with his explanations. Make sure you plane for another hour or so on top of the tour to be able to see the many other work of arts !
