A nice recent museum with wonderful Magritte art but with bad lighting, it's hard to take in the art when you have to move around the paintings trying to see it. Overall a too dark museum. Rude personnel at the entrance, there is no reason being impolite to museum visitors. On a rainy day we had umbrellas and of course... More

interesting and informative exhibition, I enjoyed the time I spent there. But, buy a combo ticket to see all 3 museums while you are there. Such an interesting collection of his work

We were very disappointed by the museum, for many reasons. Not only did it not have many of the most famous paintings (bowler hats/words included), but the lighting was so poorly placed that in order to see the paintings without glare, one has to stand to the side of it. I have never encountered such a problem in a (supposedly)... More

We knew a little about Magritte so decided to visit. 3 floors of his work, well displayed, with English translations of the titles and some explanations of the different periods in his life.

The exhibit provided was fantastic - a real treat for those who are big fans of art, or Magritte specifically. There were numerous floors and rooms filled with his work, with lots of information provided about him along the way. We were able to purchase a ticket which enabled us access to multiple rooms within the building (the Magritte exhibition... More

It was a nice exhibit. But 8 euro was to much to only visit a portion of a larger museum. I wanted to see more but like a previous reviewer noted. The louve is only 15 euro for the whole museum. And this one is 13 to see magritte and also the modern wing. Then upon entering the exhibit. There... More

A great place to go in Brussels. If you are a student they give you a very good discount. I think I paid about two euros with my student ID. Also make sure you don't carry a big bag or backpack they will make you put it in the locker and you have to pay for lockers, which is a... More

We went there on a Saturday and due to circumstances only had an hour left to visit the museum. Luckily we had some free tickets. One hour is certainly too short as you don't have much time to stand in front of the paintings for some minutes and certainly not for taking the audio-tour. But we did enjoy it very... More

Had been looking forward to this visit. When in Belgium and all... It was only after shelling out 8 euros that I went through the museum, round the corner, past the rude man checking tickets, stowed the dangerous umbrella in a locker, back to the rude man, into the lobby, up to level 3 in the lift and started the...

Unfortunately the world's top museums and galleries already play home to his most famous pieces. there is however a rainy afternoon's worth of indulgences to view. in fact, 200 works housed on three floors in the Neo- classic building. Try winging your visit on the first Wednesday of the month after 1.00 pm for free entry,otherwise its 8 euros plus... More
