Having gone to the Mauritius in The Hague the day before, I thought my 16 year old son and I might enjoy some surrealism for a change. Nothing in this museum resonated with us. We both felt his life story was mundane and that what we saw could have been read about on the internet. I wish we would have... More

Interesting museum. Most items had English Translations. Provides a lot of history about the artist. The ticket for this museum also covers the other museums in the building (modern art and old masters).

Always intrigued by Magritte. An nice museum which has an interesting path evoking his life. A bit complicated but inspiring and informative.

Prices were very reasonable, 8 euro per person. The museum was very small, i thought. While it featured some nice pieces, there were not that many on display.

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.

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.
