Salvador Dalí Museum
Price: $$ ($17-$22); $10 on Thursdays after 5pm. Bring a student ID if you have one for the best pricing.
Hours: Friday through Wednesday 10am-5:30pm; Thursday 10am-8pm
Parking: $10 but free for members. I'm cheap and haven't made the dive into getting a membership yet (although I want to). Unless I plan on spending a really long time here, I try to find street parking and pay the meter. The meters go off of the Parkmobile app so don't worry if you don't have coins. Parking on the street in front of the Albert Whitted Airport is usually a good choice and only a short walk.
Food: Located inside the museum is the Gala Cafe, named after Dalí 's muse. It's a small but open space and serves unique food. Heads up that if you go during peak hours you may have difficulty finding seating. I would also suggest checking out FarmTable Cucina in SunDial before or after your visit. They serve cocktails inspired by the current exhibit and always hit the spot.
The Salvador Dalí Museum houses the largest collection of the surrealist painter's work outside of Europe. It is a must see for any local or visitor. If you are local, I highly recommend becoming a member. Membership is tax deductible and allows you to enjoy the museum for free whenever you want. To see if it's right for you take a look at the exhibits they have currently and coming up.
Check out the events going on at the Dalí, one of my favorites being the yoga classes (held on most Sundays). They're $10 for members, $15 for non-members, and for $10 extra you can visit the museum. They also have "Mimosas and Masterpieces" for a new spin on Sunday brunch!
