Wed July 27th: Dali-town

Wed July 27th: Dali-town
With threatening skies this morning, we decided to go with plan-C, the Dali Museum north of us in the town of Figueras (link). I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the museum was unlike any other that I’ve ever visited.
The museum was located in a theater in the middle of town that Dali had converted into the Museum. You might even consider the museum to be an extension of his art, with the very huge exhibits of is work and the very very small. He is even buried in the middle of the main gallery where people walk on top of, many not even knowing that he is buried there.
When we got to the museum, there was a huge line just for tickets, but we found out that there are guided tours of the museum without any waiting for only and additional 6 euros. The tour was worthwhile and added a lot to the visit. I highly recommend it.
