Spectacle-Laden Dali Museum Now Open for Business

Spectacle-Laden Dali Museum Now Open for Business

The new Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida, has finally opened its doors, and, exactly as we expected, it’s a great, big masturbatory tribute to The Great Masturbator himself.

We don’t really need to get into that again, though. Suffice to say, the museum — designed by the architecture giant HOK — is still a raging spectacle. Its geodesic blob still looks like a tumor (for all its engineering wizardry). And the building still may or may not be an homage to adolescent horniness. But hey, judge for yourself.
