As much as I love Magritte, I put this museum a must go on my list. If you are a student, the discounted price will only be 3 euro, which was significantly lower than my expectation. (the ticket also included the admission the the royal museum). Basically I was contented with all the art works this museum presented: everything. However,... More

Arrived at the museum a little before 10am on the first Saturday of 2015 only to see crowds of people waiting around a tiny paper sign on the entrance saying that the museum of fine arts (Magritte museum is part of this larger museum) has new hours in 2015 and would not open until 11am on weekends. A bit annoyed,... More

The Magritte exhibition is located in the Royal Museum of Fine Art. At a cost of 8 Euros, one has the opportunity to view examples of Magritte’s work from different phases of his life. Not all of his works are exhibited, noticeably ‘The Son of Man’ but other famous works such as ‘Black Magic’ are. My regret in not hiring... More

One of five separate museums within the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Brussels, the Magritte Museum is wonderfully presented with many paintings, posters, photographs, films, objects, sculptures and drawings = over 230 plus works of art and archives. One begins the visit by starting on the 3rd floor, making your way down to -1st floor. You learn just how... More

While this museum doesn't have many of the artist's major works, it more than makes up for that with the variety and extent of its collection. Letters, magazine articles, drawings, even videos made by the artist are all amply represented. This is a must-see for anyone in Brussels with an interest in surrealism. And if it doesn't exhaust your enthusiasm... More

I could live in this museum! When I visited in 2013, I was already a fan of Magritte's, but when I left, I was completely in love with his work! This has such a huge, amazing collection, that you are bound to see all your favourites and discover many, many more. It has a variety from all the periods and... More

One of the most instantly recognisable surrealist artists in the world, Rene Magritte is celebrated on three floors of the Royal Museums in Brussels. The exhibition, whose works were mostly donated by Magritte's widow Georgette, covers his entire life and includes paintings, posters, sketches, films, letters and other documents. There's also a very good documentary about Magritte. The cinema was... More

Never-ending blue skies filled with cotton clouds; icons of the surrealist René Magritte. This is the museum home of his best-known art pieces, and the majority of his works. Here, you will also discover his letters and more personal artworks. A splendid permanent display housed in a beautiful facility ... which happens to be at the heart of Brussels' art... More

I do like Magritte so it was never going to disappoint. There is a lot of work here, many that I have not seen before. I have seen a lot of the more famous Magritte paintings, some of which are not here, and enjoyed seeing something I hadn't seen before. It gives you a more historical view of Magrittes life,...

Take a trip down from the top of the museum to the bottom. There are about 200 drawings, sketches and photo's of René Magritte. The only thing we were missing, were the most famous paintings from René Magritte (the pipe, the man with the hat, the apple, etc.). There are about 6 musea where the René Magritte is one of...
