Overview

The new Dali museum debuted in the spring of 2011 to host the largest collection of Dalí’s work outside of Spain. The first floor includes a reception center, museum store, 90-seat orientation theater, 150-seat community room and café with indoor and outdoor seating. Administrative offices and a research library are on the second floor, with exhibits on the third floor.

Features

TLC engineered systems that accurately control temperature and humidity, which is crucial for a facility that houses priceless artwork. Sustainable design features include a domestic hot water system with electric-fired back-up and a solar water heating system that functions as a virtual boiler for the museum’s dehumidification systems, critically important during St. Petersburg’s hot, humid weather.
