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

If you like Magritte then you will love this museum! Exactly what it says on the tin - was a tad too much for me but it is the Magritte museum so that was to be expected!

Before visiting this museum, I knew very little of Magritte except for his most famous works. I found this museum to be a useful addition to my knowledge of art history. I have one recommendation on how to view the museum. The first thing one should do is to see the movie about Magritte on the floor just below the... More

A very nice exhibition presenting Margritte's main paintings in a very interesting way, that enhances the modernity of his work.

Part of the Musee de Beaux-Artes, The Magritte section provided a lovely calm element to the day, and kept the 9 year old engaged. Turns out she prefers this to the Old Masters. We had a fab time wandering around the displays and discussing the art, and ended up buying arty fridge magnets in the gift shop. Winner!

Really engaging museum to learn about the life and work of Magritte and his circle of collaborators and friends. I was impressed to see sculpture included in the displays (this is something I did not know about Magritte !) Also included is a selection of the commercial artwork (posters, flyers etc) that Magritte produced to make his living at several... More

I have been to this museum twice, it shows of Magrittes personality as well as his work. You can also find napkin "art work" that gives you an insight in Magritte beyond his paintings. I definitely recommend a visit to this museum while in Brussels.

A good collection of his work throughout the years. I was confused as to why everyone in the lift had their phones out filming the wall, then when we started moving I understood, on the wall as you go up there are paintings of different parts of a woman's body. Better than taking a selfie I guess.
