Newest Review: ... £8 (7 - 14) Family Ticket £38 (2 adults 2 children) These prices might seem a little expensive especially compared to the free galleries in London, but as a Dali fan it was worth paying. Although we didn't pay the whole amount, as there were people outside the gallery handing out tickets for £4 off and they gave us two so we only paid £10 each. I ... more

A visit to the 'Dalí Universe' opened up my eyes about Salvador Dalí - an amazing artist. I had seen some standard posters of his most famous works but now I know that Dalí has created so much more.

These sculptures are definitely the highlight of the exhibition. A friend of mine, who has visited several exhibitions of Dali's works, tells me that this is definitely the best ...
