Museum Of Monterey - Review

Opened in 1992, this delightfully free attraction has thousands of Monterey related artefacts. It’s all about seeing the history of the city through the lens of it’s relationship with the bay. This cannot be helped, especially as its collections were started off the sailor Allen Kinight in the early 20th century. The exhibits are spread out over three floors: The ground floor has a fantastic photo collection from South America; the first floor has beautiful photos of whales (life-size); and the dazzling third floor has a permanent exhibit on the history of the area. This covers the early Spanish exploration, the rise and fall of the sardine fishing industry and Cannery Row, model ships, decorative pieces from Monterey’s earliest families and some early Californian art. There are also other historical objects specific to Monterey.

Museum Of Monterey, Monterey Reviews

  • I loved the exhibits, even if many were reproductions. The atmosphere was great. My llama I walked around and learned a lot about Dalí. We will definitely be coming back.

  • Tourist trap/borderline fraudulent operation. Not a single museum level item of art in the building. Take a look at the other negative reviews from people with a little knowledge to recognize the scam that is going on.

  • Although not as prolific as the works displayed in Dali Museum in St. Petersburg FL...an awesome contrast displaying how diversified and creative he was...the themes were an awesome way to show his talents...

  • Bacchanalia Ltd. was invited to serve concessions during The Erotic Eclectic's performance of Dali XXX last weekend. We found the staff upbeat, hospitable, and fun. The renovation of the old Maritime Museum makes excellent use the building's space. It is at once grand, simple, elegant, and spacious. Yet, it isn't cold. It's a place you would want to hang out in, alone or as part of a 200+ person crowd, which it will accommodate easily. The museum's central location makes it perfect for executing their mission. The goal is to draw a lively young crowd by offering a variety of art-centeic events. By showcasing local talent, (as Dali was, unbeknownst to me) from all genres, Dali 17 permeates the local art scene with diversity. This kind of art in motion approach frees art from the walls, bringing it alive in a 3D breath of much needed inspiration. Salvador Dali would approve!!

  • Good size art gallery with Dali pieces and art by other artists as well. Worth a look.
