23 September 1974. Salvador Dalí’s dream came true when his Theatre-Museum was opened in the heart of Figueres, where he could finally display the bulk of his artistic creation all in one place. Today, over four decades later, Dalí’s dream is still alive and the Theatre-Museum provides a dream-like experience for all who visit it. Before going in, walk around the building and observe some examples of the artist’s creative energy. On Plaça Gala-Salvador Dalí, right in front of the main façade and around the corner, Dalí placed representations of some of his obsessions: science (homage to Newton on the steps leading to Carrer de la Jonquera), academic art (three sculptures by Meissonier perched on columns of tyres); innovative art (Obelisk Television by Wolf Vostell with a bust of Gala on top), and Catalan philosophy (monument to Francesc Pujols and Ramon Llull). Continue walking around the museum, observing it from different angles. Admire the gilded mannequins on the roof and windows; the huge eggs crowning the building represent the hatching of the children born to Leda and the god Zeus transformed into a swan.
