Owner description: Delve into the surreal world of Salvador Dali, one of the most ingenious and eccentric artists of the 20th century. The museum gives visitors with more than 450 exhibits from private collectors worldwide one of the most extensive insight into Dali's virtuosic & experimental mastery in almost all art techniques, directly in the centre of Berlin. "COME INTO MY BRAIN", Salvador Dali called upon the masses. The permanent exhibition shows works in which he shot with muskets on massive lithostones and invented the Bulletism or artworks where he let explode nail-filled bombs or drove a steamroller over a sewing machine. To facilitate the visitors the way into this fascinating world Dali_Scouts will guide visitors conversationally through the museum in public guided tours which are held almost hourly. Open daily (Mon–Sun): Jan–Jun 12 pm – 8 pm |Jul–Aug 10 am – 8 pm | Sep–Dec 12 pm – 8 pm (last entry 7 pm / Dec 24th closed) Public Guided Tours: 12:30 pm | 2 pm | 3:30 pm | 5:00 pm | 6:30 pm

How to make money out of tourists. Gather some 100+ drawings and sketches from a famous artist, advertise it in key places with vague and exciting flyers, charge 12,50 at the entrance and insistently promote extra services, guided tours, books etc. Better stay away from that kind of exhibitions..

Dear alcol67,
Thank you for your visit. Unfortunately, we cannot understand your review about our museum. We would like to explain some of the misunderstandings you seem to have had at our museum. First of all, we do not show any sketches and drawings at all. We have over 450 original works by Dalí, e.g. graphics, books, film and sculptures and more. As a private museum without any financial aid by the government we're really happy that we have the opportunity to show all theses original art works to a broad audience.
Thank you again for coming. Your Dalí-Team

We had seen that this was on before we headed to Berlin. We both love Dali and we weren't disappointed. There is an audio guide which was interesting and well written, and the works are arranged carefully and well presented. You can buy a permit to allow you to take photos which was great, and the exhibition is a lot larger than it appears.
We really enjoyed it and will be going back again next time.

Was fairly disappointed with this exhibition. Not an art expert but do like Dalí's art. Too much up selling at the till for my liking which angered me before we got in.

The information about hours should include that the last entrance time is at 7:00. When we showed up at 7:20 we couldn't go in, and we were told that the closing at 7:00 was in our best interest because the exhibit requires at least an hour to go through. Frankly, it's not all that impressive a collection of work, as a number of reviewers have said, and the amount of time one spends should be up to the visitor to decide. If we wanted to pay to spend only 15 mins even, that should have been our choice. At the least, the information that it's not possible to get in after 7:00 should be prominently displayed with the hours.

The entrance fee is high, you're charged extra if you want to take pictures (by the way, the collection does not contain any works that are that spectacular that you would like to take pictures anyway) and the guide is very young and not really an expert.

The collection is fairly large, and shows complete sets of Dali's illustration work. No real "Waauw" moments though.

A dissapointment, really.
