I visited the Dali Theatre Museum in Figueres the other day and was fascinated by it. I have to be honest, I knew very little about Dali before entering the museum but knew a heck of a lot more by the time I left. Before I even set foot in the museum, I wondered about his obvious interest in eggs because of the egg-shaped structures on the top of the Dali Museum (see photo below). Apparently, these are a common image in Dali’s work, which symbolise hope and love.
I found the museum both interesting and entertaining: interesting because you can see so much in just one painting and entertaining because there were a few things in there that made me laugh. I think it captures the spirit of Dali. There is a suggested route that you can follow so you don’t miss anything but, as it is a museum about Dali, you are encouraged to find your own way round. I think it’s well worth visiting.
