#51 of 193 in Museums in Berlin
Dali - The Exhibition at Potsdamer Platz is a house of the surreal, with more than 400 exhibits displaying Salvador Dali's genius. Look for the "Apocalypse of St. John" with holes punched in it--a painting that was blessed by the Pope and that Dali tried to destroy in a fit of self-abasement. English-speaking guides are on hand at the museum, so there is no need to book ahead. These Dali Scouts lead you through the rooms, describing paintings and sharing details about Dali's life along the way. The exhibits showcase more than 2,000 pieces of Dali's work gathered from private collections around the world. The modern building doubles as an event venue Add Dali - The Exhibition at Potsdamer Platz to your Berlin travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Berlin online itinerary planner .

  • Be sure to book with a guided tour. There were very interesting details and anecdotes. Here, the well-known oil paintings were deliberately dispensed with.

  • To me frankly this museum did not like it at all ... Berlin offers many but much more beautiful ones, so I advise you not to spend 14 euros useless for a very small museum with very few works !

  • Very interesting exhibition with a large amount of art to look at. There is also a viewing area to watch 3 different short films. One thing to know is that you must pay a bit extra if you would like to take pictures inside in order to insure that the photos will not be used for further uses. This is fine, especially when in a group. There are hourly tours that go into details of certain drawings, letting you know more about what was drawn and also of hidden features one wouldn’t immediately see. If you happen to be there just before a tour I recommend joining the tour.
  • Stunning, awe inspiring. A fabulous collection of some of Dali's lesser known works and lithographs. Very well sorted collection. One can definitely get lost in the tiny intricate details of each piece. Staff was also very friendly. Get a free coffee if you bring a brochure from your hostel. Would have liked some better explanation regarding materials used, etc or English descriptions.
