"A true painter is one who can paint extraordinary scenes in the middle of an empty desert. A true painter is one who can patiently paint a pear in the midst of the tumults of history."  - Salvador Dalí

A virtual tour of the Dalí Museums, currently closed for the public health emergency, let's you visit inside galleries and glimpse the Surrealist's home in Spain. 

Visit the museums' website to tour the interiors and collections of the Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres, Salvador Dalí House-Museum in Portlligat and Gala Dalí Castle in Púbol.

Of the fisherman's hut that the artist bought in 1930, and shared with wife Gala for decades, Dalí said: "Portlligat is the place of production, the ideal place for my work. Everything fits to make it so: time goes more slowly and each hour has its proper dimension. There is a geological peacefulness: it is a unique planetary case."
