Salvador Dali Museum - St. Petersburg, FL

My fiancee Duane and I have been wanting to go to the Salvador Dali museum in St Pete for awhile now, but with work and the kids we just never had time.  In the past year the museum underwent a huge facelift and expanded from their previous 11,000 sq ft property to one that is almost 22,000 sq ft.  The building and the grounds themselves are beautiful before you even enter in the exhibit.

As cameras are not allowed in the exhibit I have added some shots of the items that are on display. The price was $21/each for adults with children being cheaper depending on their age. check out the times, prices and directions for yourself with this link -
