Duncan McClellan Gallery
2342 Emerson Avenue South, St. Petersburg

The Dali Museum
1 Dali Boulevard, St. Petersburg
The Dali Museum allows you to experience the life and work of one of the most influential artists in history: Salvador Dali. You won’t find a more impressive or all-encompassing collection of his paintings, sculptures, and other surreal artistic projects anywhere else in the world.
The building, designed by architect Yann Weymouth, is a work of art in and of itself. It houses three floors of Dali art, exhibitions, educational resources, and merchandise.
Museum of Fine Arts St. Petersburg
255 Beach Drive NE, St. Petersburg
While the Dali Museum offers an in-depth look at the life and work of one incredible artist, the Museum of Fine Arts St. Petersburg also offers thousands of years worth of art from across the globe. They both have their merits, of course, but if you’re interested in taking in the grand scope of humanity’s artistic endeavors, this is the place for you.
There’s plenty to enjoy from the permanent collection alone, but the traveling exhibitions are what make repeat visits a necessity for any art lover new to independent living in St. Petersburg.
