The René Magritte Museum occupies the house in which the Belgian surrealist painter worked nearly 24 years of his life. On the ground floor the museum presents the apartment where the painter lived and worked from 1930 to 1954, A biographical...more
If you like Magritte, you will fall in love with him if you visit his museum. Such a special artistic!
The museum tour is nicely planned and not only can you enjoy his art, but also read his quirky quotes.
Whether you are a fan or not, it’s definitely worth to visit the museum. I, personally, adore Magritte. As we undertood some of the most famous paintings were not there (we were lucky to see them some years ago at exposition in Pompidou, Paris), you...More
It is sometimes hard to decide whether to visit a particular site as you do not always know what you will find there. The Rene Magritte House Museum may be one of those situations. If you are a die-hard fan, then you will not be...More
Ther museum shows the development of Magritte's art through the decades. I love his paintings, but his most famous, The Treachery of Images is not in the museum. Another pucture of a pipe is though, with the text "This is not a pipe either."

We are sorry you didn't enjoy the experience at the René Magritte Museum. We don't work with Hop-On.Hop-Off, we can't control the informations they give to tourists about the house.
It's a suburbian area of Brussels since it's Magritte's studio. He lived...More
Who said there weren't any famous Belgians?
Influential artist Rene Magritte painted some of the most startling images of the last century, he was a surrealist painter and is perhaps the most famous of all Belgian personalities. His work depicts everyday objects in quirky, odd...More
Rene and George Magrite and their dog after the war....
This museum depicts a large collection from the incredible Rene Magritte. It is attached (underground passage) to another museum as well. Two floors and few exhibition rooms in each. Each work gets you to stare...More
Easy to get there with tram 93. Essential to try to discover and to understand the deeper meanings of Magritte's art. Very bourgeois environment. Surrealism as an escape from an unbearable ordinary life.
The Hoho bus stops about 10 minutes walk away but the driver sent us in the wrong direction so took more like 30 minutes to find. Worth the detour for Magritte fans to see the small ground floor apartment, recreated like a time capsule, where...More
