Great Places and Spaces: Dali Museum expansion

St. Petersburg’s Salvador Dalí Museum submitted a capital-projects funding request to the county’s Tourist Development Council in hopes of receiving $17.5 million in public funding to construct a $38.6 million expansion.

The museum wants to expand to accommodate 50 percent more visitors, estimating the proposed expansion will bring in an additional 900,000 visitors over a 10-year period. The expansion would consist of a new digital Dali permanent exhibit and a  parking garage.

If approved, the museum would match the grant with private money to complete the project.

The project is tentatively scheduled to break ground in March 2020, with the garage wrapping up in February 2021, and the new gallery exhibits and community spaces opening in 2022.
