The Salvador Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg will open on Tuesday, January 11, 2011.

The public is invited to participate in a surreal procession departing from the current museum (located at 1000 Third Street South in St. Petersburg) at 10 a.m. and concluding at the new museum (located eight blocks north at One Dali Blvd.). Entertainment, a dedication program with S.A.R. la Infanta Cristina of Spain, Duchess of Palma de Mallorca, and a ribbon cutting ceremony with Spanish Royalty presiding — starting at 11:00 a.m. — will mark the beginning of a new era for the Dalí at its new location. The festivities will continue until 3 p.m.

The new museum is designed by global architectural practice Hellmuth, Obata and Kassabaum (HOK).

Dalí Museum’s new 66,450 square feet building features 50% more space allotted for the 2,100 pieces of the permanent Salvador Dali collection.
