Worth The Drive – The Dali Museum

,

Some of the most popular day trips for Clearwater Beach visitors are to places such as Walt Disney World and Crystal River, but not all day trips involve leaving the Tampa Bay area. You can visit places like Tarpon Springs, Dunedin and Caladesi Island all with a short drink, boat ride or even a long walk. While these areas are best visited on beautiful sunny days, where do you go on a rainy day? You can visit Salvador Dali himself at The Dali Museum!

Salvador Dali - The Dali Museum

The Dali Museum

The Dali Museum is located 45 minutes from the beachfront condos in Clearwater Beach. The Museum sits on the edge of Tampa Bay in St. Petersburg, Florida. The building itself is a beautiful structure. The large strict lines of the concrete structure are split by large glass windows known as the Enigma. “This geodesic sculpture constructed of 1,062 separate panes provides a kaleidoscopic view and summons you to explore Dali’s key philosophy: view the world from every possible perspective.” Beyond making the building beautiful, the glass windows provide an amazing view from within of Tampa Bay and the outside gardens that are filled with artwork matching Dali’s artistic vision.

Inside The Dali Museum, you’ll find a gallery filled with stunning art created by Salvador Dali in his surrealist views. You’ll have the chance to observe Dali’s creative objects, prints, photographs, works on paper, paintings and book illustrations.

You’ll also have an extremely unique opportunity to see and hear Dali share his observations on current events and sharing insight on what motivated his work through the Dali Lives exhibition, a truly amazing experience developed through artificial intelligence. Learn more about this amazing opportunity, including getting a selfie taken by Dali himself in the video below.

In addition to Dali Lives, if you choose to visit The Dali Museum on a weekend you’ll have a chance to enjoy Little Surrealist Tour for children ages 4-11 on Saturdays. On Sunday mornings you can experience Yoga at The Dali and Mimosas & Masterpieces: Brunch at The Dali.

If you don’t have time to for a day trip to The Dali Museum, you can experience the Dreams of Dali Pop Up in Downtown Clearwater! The Pop Up only lasts until June 20, 2019. The goal is to fully immerse you in Dali’s views through VR.

Clearwater Beach Weather and Events 2019

Clearwater Beach Weather June 2019

Clearwater Beach summer vacation time is here! The weather is in the 80°s and so is the water temperature! The warm weather mixed with the warm water makes it a great time of year to get out and play in the ocean! Swim around, rent a jet ski from the beach or head out for a sail! If playing in the ocean isn’t for you; enjoy relaxing on the beach and soaking up the sun in the warm weather. The average Clearwater Beach temperature in June is a beautiful 84°, but the direct sun may make it feel much warmer. Be sure to protect your skin, stay hydrated, and cool off in the pool!
