Set in one of the houses of Rene Magritte this museum is quite simple. Basically see and old house and some simple memorabilia of the painter. Lots of stairs, no wheelchair accessible.

If you love Magritte don't miss this! It's fascinating to see where he lived, how he lived, and to see how his work was influenced by this. We also went to the Magritte museum and seeing his house made it that much more fascinating. Definitely recommend! 8 euros per person but worth every penny.

There isn't any original artistic work. It's interesting only to understand some element that appears in his pictures. It's difficult to join the place without a car.

Dear Madame, thanks you for your visit in our biographical museum. It's true that visitors may be disappointed not to see the big oil paintings of René Magritte in our museum. Nevertheless some original works are available on the second floor of our museum: landscape of his youth, portrait, 3 surrealist watercolours, many original drawings. Our exhibition presents a private... More

Three floors of everything to do with Margritte, if your a fan you will love it. If not a fan you will still be interested. Museum is on the same site as the modern museum and the classics. We got the combined ticket to all three. If you do this its a full day commitment as there's a lot to... More

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

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

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
