The “new” Salvador Dalí Museum is one of St. Petersburg’s greatest treasures, and I’ve been visiting there for more than 20 years. I hadn’t been in a while, so upon hearing that they are hosting a Warhol exhibit—the first time someone else’s work is being shown alongside Dalí’s—it was time for another visit.

Below are a few photos of the exterior of the new museum:

There are a lot of great reasons to visit St. Pete, but this one might just be the best.

    When I was a child, the museum was located in a suburb of Cleveland. I went there when I was 12 and it blew my mind.

    And here I was, wondering why there would be palm trees in Russia!

      There once was a large, special exhibit of Dalí’s sketches at the museum years ago. I’m not sure if they are part of the permanent collection or not.
