I really enjoyed going to this museum. My knowledge of Magritte's work was limited to the painting from the movie "The Thomas Crown Affair" called "Man in the bowler hat". However I loved to learn that Magrette was such a complex artist with different styles. I saw many paintings that I loved. Exhibition is well structured by periods and museum... More

Beautiful, well organized and stylish are the words that I would chose for this museum. It gives you a great insight into the work and life of one of Belgium's leading artist Réne Margritte. Photos and videos add to the experience. The museum is on several floors and I would not skipp any, each level is full of surprises. It... More

This museum is located on "museum hill," which is very close to the Grand-Place. It has an interesting collection of Magritte works, but the curation is a little confusing -- it isn't always clear why certain works are grouped together. definitely worth a visit, and you don't need more than an hour to see the whole thing.

Interesting insight to some of Magritte's artwork but mostly not in English! Would be good to add more English

I went there with my partner and a couple who are very good friends, just before Christmas and had a really interesting visit to the Magritte museum. do not believe the maps! The Magritte museum is part of the same building as the two other art galleries located in the centre of Brussels and is just across the road and... More

I really like this museum a lot and tend to visit it each time I go to Brussels. It has the perfect collection of Magritte's work. The museum shop is also very good.

If you are an art lover, brussels is the right place. We went afternoon, therefore all museums had free acces. We visited Magritte Museum as I just love Rene Magritte. Even my husband, who is not a big fan of surrealism, enjoyed it. And we also went to the Royal Museum of Fine arts particularly to see Bruegel but walking... More

As a Magritte lover since my teenage years, I liked forward to seeing his work in a museum dedicated to him. Arranged over several floors, there is w wealth of paintings, drawings and the information, but there was alack of cohesiveness and continuity, as well as sufficient explanation in English for us. Worth going - but your French or Flemish... More
