Among all of Dalí’s creations are oils, watercolors, sketches, sculptures and plenty of other objects. The Dalí Museum contains 8 out of the 18 masterworks that Dalí produced. Exhibits by other surrealist artists are also temporarily displayed at the museum.
The entrance for visitors is located through The Dalí Museum Store. The store features the largest collection of Dalí-inspired merchandise in the world.
