The sheer range of Magritte paintings on offer at this museum makes it a strong recommendation for anyone visiting Brussels. Has paintings from every era of his output, including some from his sun surrealism 'vache' period. The 'Empire of Lights' from his later period was stunning to see. Overall I would say this a well put together collection that deserves... More

It's a very big museum and you can see a lot of paintings. I visited two times and i really liked it. I definitely recommend this museum.

Only €2 to visit a part of the museum as we got a student concession. Really interesting and beautiful works. Would love to do a tour next time and to see more of the galleries.

Its a really nice museum even if outside it seem to have hell of a lot of people it is well organized, outside I felt desperate but I got in really quick inside you really dont feel like there is that much people, its calm, clean and some how emotionally soothing. I went alone, it is cheap and nice for... More

I am only writing this review to warn future travellers that this museum has got a great queue for purchasing tickets! It is in a building with 4 other museums and the queue is one for all. So, we had to wait over one hour and didn't have time to see it. So go on a day you will have... More

The Museum is really small. I mean really really small, just handful of small rooms. There is a movie going about Magritte's life in a cozy theater. Were looking forward to see more artifacts and art on display. With 8 euros per admission ticket it was not worth it.

Climb up to the top floor, and visit all the galleries to the ground, and you'll have a great overview of Magritte's creative trajectory. The permanent exhibition is didactically structured, with plenty of good pieces - even though the most famous works are not in the collection. You can buy the combo ticket for other parts of the Musées Royaux,... More

I was so glad when I saw this place come up on TripAdvisor while searching for things to do on our day trip to Brussels. If you don't like surrealism, don't bother. This museum has some great stuff, and a lot of it will make you turn your head sideways and contemplate the meaning. This is my favorite thing about... More

The musem to visit in Brussels with the Royal Museum of Art (it is at the same location with separate entry). It is a quite new attractive designed museum with a wonderful collection of this iconic belgium painter of Surrealism (like Delvaux) and a good approach to understand the unique mind of belgium people with a very different view of...

A wonderful museum dedicated to Magritte, part of the complex of Belgian national museums in Brussels. The modest entrance fee is worth the expense - I only wish we'd had more time to visit the other adjacent museums. Dimly-lit galleries chart the work of Magritte through a well though-out series of rooms featuring ephemera, music, movies and - of course... More
