    We saw this at The Dali Museum in Florida a few weeks ago. It was very cool, and worth checking out.

    They're doing this in Philly, too. Hoping to get tickets.

    With many fewer tourists around, there may be a chance to see it in DC.
    Most of the ticketed shows are impossible to get into without a lot of patience, or shenanigans, and the free time to take what you might be able to get.
    Very cool looking.
    I might wear some VR goggles to take in that show. Would not be much different.

    Explain. Because it's also coming to Pittsburgh.

    I just checked ticket prices. No thanks. I'm not going to spend more that $200 for a four of us.

    When we saw it in Florida it was just part of the regular admission to the Dali museum. No extra charge.

    Aren't the original paintings enough?

    It looks cool, but I feel it is more a kind of gimmick. Wonder what Vincent van Gogh would think of it? Would he be turning in his grave?

    I just don't have an ear for it.

    It is a gimmick and are not original paintings if that is what people think it is. Still, I found it to be a cool exhibition of his life and works. Nothing I would go way out of the way to see, but since we were at the museum anyway, i thought it was a cool exhibit.

    I'm not saying I wouldn't want to experience it, but it still gives me a weird feeling. Perhaps a bit the same way people reacted on rocking the classics.

    If anyone in the US wants to see an unbelievable art museum, I highly recommend the National Gallery of Art in Washington DC. It is beyond mind-blowing and it's free. I've never seen anything like it. My wife was brought to tears.

    And, BTW, the US citizens own the collection.

    We just stumbled upon it by accident. I enjoyed it for what it was, but would not gone out of my way to see it.

    We saw it yesterday here in Charlotte. I thought it was cool. Was it a gimmick? Sure.

    It's not the same as going to a museum, but it's not trying to replace (or replicate) that experience.

    It’s coming to London too and I’m tempted. I’ve been lucky enough to see many of his famous works up close, but this looks to be fun way to experience his visions.

    Was it worth $250 for a family of four?

    I mean, no. But we don’t have kids. A whole bunch of shit is worth a hundred bucks when you don’t have kids.

    Weird.....when we saw it in Florida it was included in the regular Dali Museum entrance fee. Personally, I would not have paid extra for it.

    Ottawa prices are $52.50 for "timed entry" or $63 for flexible/untimed admission. There is also a VIP ticket for $105, which comes with a Van Gogh face mask and some other unspecified swag.
