...about surrealism, go anyway. Magritte's art will blow your mind, and leave you with two major questions. Who is still making surreal art, and where can I see some more? So far, nothing I've seen affects me like Magritte, except maybe the album covers of the late Storm Thorgerson.

My friend and I visited the Magritte Museum as it was recommended on a lot of 'Things to do in Brussels' websites. It was cheap as we are under 25, the lady selling us our tickets was rude when we thanked her for her tickets, we said 'Merci' and she responded bluntly 'I'm not french'. You are not allowed to...

If you are fascinated by the Belgian Surrealist artist René Magritte then this is the place to visit, the museum chronicles the life of Magritte through the huge collection of paintings, posters, newspaper articles, books, sketches. We found it very informative and fascinating and am still intrigued by Surrealism and its meaning. Two hours later we ended up in the... More

You start on the third floor and work your way down. It has a several of his important and recognizable works. I recommend the audio tour. I didn't get it but when I could stand by others who did and listen in for a tiny bit, it had very good info, and I wished we had picked one up on... More

This museum is part of the package of 3 when visiting the Royal Museum. We found it to be an interesting story of the life of Rene Magritte. As a current artist it was much different than the old masters.

This museum is part of the amazing Royal Museums of Fine Art. It's a good overview of one of Belgium's most famous artists Rene Magritte's work. It's a good museum, but it doesn't feel like it has his best or most famous pieces. Still it's definitely worth seeing.
