I went during Musees Nocturnes, during which time entrance was exceptionally free. I only had to pay 3 euros for the audio guide for the permanent exhibition. (Watch out! There's normally an admission fee of 5-8 euros.) I enjoyed the temporary exhibition on Nervia/Laethem-Saint-Martin very much and thought it highlighted the works of relatively obscure (to me) Belgian artists really... More

Liked the old masters and19th/20th century museums but was a bit disappointed by the Magritte section. Still, a fine place to spend the day.

super variety of mainly paintings, but also some furniture and sculpture, organised in a confusing manner, its not easy to tell where you are and what you have covered, you can see they know that as they have implemented colour coding to try and help. classical to modern, with frequent special exhibitions, definitely worth a visit

Friendly staff. Interesting exhibits. Saw the Magritte section. I would go back to see the rest. Downtown and close to other attractions.

The Musée d'Ixelles is not usually in the itinerary of the tourists, maybe due to its location, or to the focus in the Centre and Mont des Arts attractions. Should you linger a little longer in the city (which as someone in love with Brussels I recommend), take the bus or the tram to Place Fernand Cocq, and with a... More
