Dalí Museum

Dalí Museum
   The "Theatre of Memory", as Dalí named it, opened in 1974 in Figueras (Girona), the painter's birthplace. The museum itself and its setting attract as much interest as the collection—mostly works made from the 1960s onwards. Under Dalí"s supervision it was built on the remains of a former playhouse. Its reticulated dome, baroque decorations, surreal paraphernalia and installations, all embody the eccentric spirit of the artist's legacy to his homeland. In 1983 the Torre Galatea annexe was added in homage to Gala, his lifelong companion and muse, who figures prominently in the museum's paintings.
