If it’s inspiration you’re seeking this summer, there’s no better place to find it than the Dalí museums peppering Spain’s landscapes. The surrealist painter’s quirky, flamboyant style is beloved the world over, but is best appreciated in the artist’s home country: Spain. Reignite your soul this summer with these famous Dalí museums in Púbol, Portlligat and Figueres.

Salvador Dalí House-Museum (Portlligat)

For the true surrealism fan

Why you’ll love it: Dalí’s home of more than 50 years in Portlligat is a surrealism-lover’s dream come true – even the building is considered a work of art! Windows of all sizes and shapes, impossibly quirky furnishings and some of the artist’s most famous sculptures make this museum a must-see.

Dalí Theatre-Museum (Figueres)

For a peek into Dalí’s home life

Why you’ll love it: Home to the largest collection of Dalí-related art objects and a spectacular homage to the artist himself, the Dalí Theatre-Museum is at once an art-lover’s paradise and a glimpse into Dalí’s life. Wander through roomfuls of the artist’s work and learn a little bit about his life in this museum in the artist’s hometown.

Gala Dalí Castle (Púbol)

For the romantic at heart

Why you’ll love it: Arguably the most romantic gesture of all time: Dalí bought this 11th-century castle for his wife, Gala, to have as her own. Lovingly decorated by Dalí for Gala, the castle is a treasure of Dalí artworks and sculptures and a testament to his and Gala’s iconic love story.
