Rejoice art enthusiasts! You have a new place of worship now!

Yesterday, St. Petersburg in Florida was the place to be if you had a pencil-thin mustache and a love of Surrealist art. The brand new Salvador Dali Museum opened, after a $36-million remodel, to put on display a priceless collection of the artist's work.

In replacing the old museum, the place has expanded to twice the exhibition space as well as new striking architecture by Yann Weymouth. Taking into account that this is considered the world's most comprehensive collection of Dali's work, the place was also upgraded in hurricane protection too.

Brilliant! Maybe we'll make it down there one day!

Any of U planning a trip to the museum?

    I live about 10 minutes away. I've been once before many years ago. I plan on waiting for all the "hype" to die down. It was awesome then so I can only imagine what it looks like now!!

    Lucky! Good idea to let the crowds to die down. I recently went to the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland on a weekend and had people up my bum the whole #@% time.
