Sadly, no photos allowed in exhibition halls.
One enters via the gift shop - being tempted to buy!
Just not, perhaps, the Daliesque car?
To then pay a hefty admission fee, even for seniors, and with a $2 off coupon.
Was it worth it?
The closest to the iconic melting watches a bench in the 'garden:
I was rather excited to return to see the "Dalis",
remembering well the just stunning exhibits at the 'old' museum.
And by the big selection of art cards and magnets, there. ;-).
I am happy I bought most then, because this time I found only 3 cards and 1 magnet I did not already have!
BUT if one wants posters, tee shirts, scarves, ties, mugs..... one will find lots there, now!
The park like grounds also boast a rock from Cadaques donated to the museum, and a sculpture of a dolphin, brightly colored.
The joy of seeing the White Pelicans and other birds on Sanibel island.. and a grey???
plus alas just a few others.Missed (our luck) the Roseate Spoonbill, seen by earlier 'birds=visitors' in the day!

And lagoon - left
at early morning on way to eagles' nest whose inhabitants seem to have been out to lunch ;-)
