St. Petersburg — The new $36-million Salvador Dali Museum has opened alongside St. Petersburg’s Mahaffey Theater near downtown.

The 66,450-sq.-ft. facility, twice as large as the museum’s former home about a mile away, will house more than 2,000 of the Spanish surrealist’s works. Designed by architect Yann Weymouth, the museum was built to withstand a category five hurricane and is topped by an organically shaped glass atrium.

After meeting with climate scientists, what should Gov. Scott's next move be?

  • Take action: He should adopt recommendations and move quickly to avoid greater disaster and economic problems.
  • Remain neutral but at least make a statement addressing concerns.
  • Take no action. Gov. Scott has more important, more immediate matters to attend to.
