very interesting. most of his famous pics are somewhere else in the world.

enjoyed every minute and whatever we saw, but most of the famous work is probably in other places. we took the audio guide and it helps.

Rene Magritte is one of my favourite artists, so whilst in Brussels I had to visit here, and I wasn't disappointed. On display is some of Magritte's famous pieces of art, many from his 'Dominion of Light' collection. Only cost me and my boyfriend €3 each to go in as we are under 25 which is great value for money.... More

Before I visited this museum I knew very little about Magritte, aside from his more famous work. However, this museum is very accessible and gave me a lot of insight into his life, motivations, and his repertoire. If you enjoy learning about an artist's life, then you should definitely visit this museum.

We had a day trip to Brussels and ran into the Magritte museum. We made the right choice. An excellent collection will open up to you for 8 euros per adult visitor. Every first Wednesday of every month is free admission past 13:00. The museum is open till 17:00. The visit starts with locker room where you need a two... More

A brilliantly designed and logical progression through the mind and works of a genius. At times the works surprise, baffle, educate and worry the viewer. Overall a great exhibition, well presented and certainly worth a visit.

An impressive collection of René Magritte's works, which includes not only paintings, but also photographs, posters, letters, sketches and films. The museum itself is very stylish and located in a beautiful part of town. I definitely enjoyed my visit, got inspired by the art and learned a lot about the artist. I would not recommend this museum if you are... More

We spent about 3 hours in the museum, everything was easily accessible and we enjoyed the souvenir shop as well. It's placed in a city part, where there is a lot to do after you finish with the museum.

Not just for art experts or people mad about surrealism. I've never been a big specific fan, but having lived in Belgium for so long, we decided to make the effort and, finally, go into Brussels and see the museum. A bit of a walk through another museum to get to it, and the rooms are surprisingly dark, but that... More
