Throughout the museum there was lots to see and everything appeared to be 'frozen in time. In the garden it was wonderful to see the Dali elephants amongst the undergrowth. The village of Pubol is also worth a visit.

I probably would only recommend this place based on the artists reputations and the beautiful setting. The interiors are more like new rich style...just tasteless...even for Dali or Gala in this case. Worth going, only if you have nothing better that day.

This is one place you don't want to miss if you are a fan of Dali. The castle, once the home of Gala and Dali, helps the visitor get a sense of the couple's complex and strange relationship, from the throne room to the dark...More

To get a glimpse of Gala's and Dali's life from 1970es to 1980es you should visit this castle in Pubol where gala is buried. I found it quite cosy but the same quite elegant. It sort of sums up the life of Gala and Dali...More

You really have to be a Dali fan to fully appreciate this place! If not it is interesting enough to warrant a visit if you are in the area! Well organised, but quite limited space so could be crowded at popular tines!

This castle will give you insights into Dali and wife Gala and their deep connection. The castle's exterior is modest but it's a wild visual ride once inside the courtyard alone. Space is well utilized and unlike any other museum I've ever visited...
