Located at the Museum of Monterey, the exhibition features the country’s largest private collection with over 580 works including lithographs, etchings, rare sculptures and tapestries. The Dali Expo’s mission is to revive Dali’s local history by showcasing his influence locally and capturing the rich history that ties him to the Monterey region.

At the Dali Expo, we are striving to enrich our neighborhood by creating a beautiful space that everyone may enjoy while touring the famous Fisherman’s wharf. Together, we hope to spark positive thought and conversation through accessible art.
My wife and I were visiting from Canada and stopped in at the museum and learned a great deal about Dali. I personally had no idea he was even from the area. The front desk staff were very friendly and professional and inside the gallery itself was beautiful. I enjoyed seeing much of the works on the walls, but I didn’t know he did sculpting work as well – I just thought it was a very interesting and fun place to stop in to see while we were visiting the Wharf area.
Amazing. I left here truly inspired. Huge thank you to the staff for their kindness and passion, and to the owners for providing such a sacred space.
