If you ask me which Florida city has the most amazing downtown area, my answer will always be: St. Petersburg. Even through the years, I feel like it has improved.
Downtown St. Pete has many places to see. Restaurants, galleries, the famous (and beautiful) The Pier and even museums. Among the museums, this one that it’s incredible amazing on the outside and that offers a large collection of the famous Spanish artist: Salvador Dalí.
With the exception of the Dalí Theater-Museum created by Dalí himself in his hometown of Figueres in Spain, this museum in Downtown St. Pete has the largest collection of works by the artist in the world. Definitely a spot that you have to visit in Florida.
St. Petersburg is located on the west coast of the state, on the Gulf of Mexico, south of Tampa. It really is a beautiful city to visit. You could spend a weekend here or more days to be able to visit the museums, get to know downtown, enjoy the beaches including Fort de Soto Park and obviously you cannot miss the sunset from the beach.
When you arrive at the museum you are going to entertain yourself just by looking the outside of the building. An unusual structure, in the best style of the artist.
The museum not only has a Dalí collection, it has also been home to different exhibitions, including one of “Van Gogh Alive” at the end of 2020 until April 2021.
And to feel a little bit in Spain, there’s a cafeteria where you can try some typical Spanish dishes.
Here’s the official web site so you can learn more about prices and exhibitions that you can find when you visit.
