It's small with a nice collection and information about the painter. There is a tour included in many languages.

We love Magritte ... if you do too it's very nice location and evolution of his production. Difficult parking space

Terrific day here. The staff were so kind, friendly, knowledgeable, and they each spoke English beautifully. Spent 2 hours, partly self-guided. The staff popped in and out to answer any questions. They suggested we visit the pub where Magritte and his friends gathered, and have a traditional Belgian meal. Before we left, they inquired if we knew how to navigate... More

I'm sure many of you have been to the large museum of Rene Magritte in the art quarter but did you know that you can visit the house the he and his wife lived in for 20 years in the Jette district of Brussels? It is not a big museum but it is worth the effect of finding it. The... More

When do you have the chance to see the home and workplace of one of the greatest painters of all times in its almost original state? If you like surrealist art, this is a must-see. Interesting fact: the museum features 30 painting from three local artists, trying to recover lost works of Magritte.

This museum is in the building that was once home to Rene Magritte and his wife for over 20 years. You have to ring the door bell to be admitted, and it's like stepping back in time. The ground floor is laid out much as it would have been when Rene (and his wife) lived there. Upstairs you pay your... More

Magritte Museum impressed us a lot, it was like a daydream journey in time. I liked the logistics – first the visitors enter the big elevator, and lifted up to the third floor, where the exposition begins. So eventually, for seeing the next halls all have to go down. Very clever idea. Halls are all darkened, designed like empty rooms... More

Wonderful house museum dedicated to the undisputed father of Belgian surrealism. It needs careful examination given the intricacy of some of his works, which require a thorough analysis. A must for fans of the genre. @gargio76

A truly must see in Brussels if you are interested in painting, surrealism and Magritte work. There's much more to discover than just paintings and its worthy of every minute.

Nice museum even if I did miss some of his best works. Besides that it is well organised and managed you can really learn about his life and his work.
