It’s surreally happening! The Dali Museum will officially reopen to the public on July 1. Members will be allowed to visit between June 24 and 28. During its. first few days of reopening, The Dali Museum is offering FREE admission to all healthcare workers. That offer will run from July 1-5.

The Dali plans to hold late hours on Thursdays and Fridays, and will extend senior hours each week Wednesday and Thursday from 10-11am. Museum employees have worked exhaustively to prepare one of the marquee cultural centers in St. Pete to safely reopen to the public.

Face masks will be required for all visitors and staff 

Here’s how The Dali Museum plans to reopen in the ‘Burg:

There will be temperature checks for staff and visitors with thermal cameras; a temperature above 100.4 will not permitted entry into the museum.

Hand sanitizers and plexi screens have been installed throughout the Museum and all staff and visitors required to wear face masks. Dalí-inspired reusable masks are available for purchase for $6.

The Dali will offer touch-free payment and credit card only (no cash handling) to minimize contact.

One way flow through the Museum

Visitors may enter the galleries at their indicated pre-purchased ticket time and will follow a dedicated, one-way flow through the Museum.

Physical distancing reminders and indicators will be present throughout the Museum.

While public docent tours will not be available, Museum staff & volunteers will be available in the galleries to answer questions; private docent tours are available for groups of 10 or less. The Dali also strongly encourages visitors to bring headphones and download the free Dalí Museum App as our audio tour loaner devices will not be available.
