ST. PETERSBURG, FL (March 9, 2012) – The Dalí Museum will offer discounted admission rates to visit the museum during the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg, March 23-25.

The Dalí Museum is located within the race area and accessible only to race ticket holders. Dalí Museum tickets must be purchased separately. “The discounted Dalí admission is a way to help bring The Dalí experience to race ticket-holders, and Dalí patrons to the excitement of the races, at a great value to both,” commented Dr. Hank Hine, museum director.
“This is a great opportunity for fans to enjoy two world-class experiences during the same weekend,” said Tim Ramsberger, vice president and general manager of the Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg. “We are pleased to work with the Dalí Museum on this initiative.”
This special Museum admission rate is available on Friday, March 23, Saturday, March 24, and Sunday, March 25, 2012, and can be purchased at the Dalí Museum on those days (no advance purchase is available).
