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. Worth visiting!

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."

Unless you like this art, do not spend much time (or at least do not expect much from it) there, plus most of the most famous paintings are exposed in other museums, so you do not see them here

Dear Mr. Lozzatrip, 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

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.
