The most surreal experience in Florida these days isn't the flying wizards over at Universal Orlando, it's behind the walls of a new museum in St. Petersburg. The Salvador Dali Museum houses more of the surrealist's masterworks than any gallery in the world.
We just visited the Dali Museum this past weekend, and even the new building is a surrealistic master piece, most impressive.
The 2,140-piece collection sits in a concrete fortress that appears under attack from a curving crystalline blob (Dali would have approved). Though the structure, designed by renowned architectural firm HOK, appears fantastical, there is an element of the practical to it. The building's 18-inch-thick walls are designed to withstand a Category 5 hurricane, to protect all those melting clocks and Dada dreams. And that is something to twirl your mustache at.
Thanks a lot for sharing this nice place with us.I am planning a trip to the Florida probably the Disney world and I am also considering to visit several others places in the Florida...
