St. Petersburg, Florida headquarters the largest collection of Spanish artist Salvador Dalí’s artwork outside of Europe. In the Salvador Dalí Museum, tourists are able to view more than 2,100 works from the surrealist, including original paintings, illustrations, manuscripts, and photos, as well as a virtual reality experience.

Salvador Dalí was a Spanish artist from the 20th century. He was a prominent figure in the surrealist movement and is known for works such as The Persistence of Memory (1931), The Burning Giraffe (1937), Spider of the Evening (1940), Lobster Telephone (1936), and Melting Watch (1954).

The museum features “Dreams of Dalí”, a virtual reality escapade that allows guests to venture around the scenery of Dalí’s painting entitled Archaeological Reminiscence of Millet’s “Angelus” (1935). Tourists undergo a 360° experience where they are able to explore the details of the panorama and go inside and around the towers featured in the painting.

The museum holds various artworks by Dalí, such as The Discovery of America by Christopher Columbus (1958-59), Nature Morte Vivante (1956), Oeufs sur le Plat sans le Plat (1932), and Old Age, Adolescence, Infancy (The Three Ages) (1940).

Guests generally had positive feedback regarding their experience at the museum. Teresa Patro, a visiting tourist, commented “I was hoping to find Dalí’s more iconic works, like ‘The Burning Giraffe’, but I was very impressed with the number of artworks the museum had. I was especially amazed with the virtual reality that transferred the guest into an unexpected world.”
