Must 'Stache Dalí
There's one undisputable commonality between the famous masterworks of Salvador Dalí and the infamous curl of his moustache: They're surreal. And to get a good view of both, you'll want to visit the all-new Dalí Museum in downtown St. Petersburg, FL (One Dalí Blvd.).
The museum, a brand-new $36 million creation, houses 66,500 square feet of exhibit and meeting space—more than double the size of the old Dalí Museum a few blocks away—and is expected to entertain more than 300,000 visitors annually.

The new museum now offers a unique café for indoor and outdoor garden dining. On the third floor, view some of his more famous works, including The Discovery of America by Christopher Columbus, The Hallucinogenic Toreador, and the lengthy-titled Gala Contemplating the Mediterranean Sea which at Twenty Meters Becomes the Portrait of Abraham Lincoln. Scheduled to open on Jan. 11 (1/11/11), the new Dalí Museum is sure to be a good...one!
