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

Very interesting and informative exhibition, for travelers interested in Magritte's life and work. The museum is not too big, so doesn't demand a lot of time to visit and it is right by the lovely park and Place Royale. First Wednesday of the month, after 1 pm admission is free!

We bought a combo ticket instead of just buying the ticket for just this museum. Each museum was 8 euros but the combo was 13 for anywhere from two of the museums to all five of them. The Magritte Museum was amazing. The art was beautiful and well worth the price of admission. It took us about an hour to... More

We very much enjoy Magritte’s work so it was a real treat to visit a whole museum dedicated to this fascinating artist. The accompanying audioguide was informative with interesting background information As well as the paintings there is much autobiographical material on view, but our main focus was on his actual work. There is a comprehensive selection of his paintings... More

Arriving at exactly 10:00 when the museum opened, did not need to book tickets on line. The place was empty. This is a relaxing start to the tourist day. Once you've parked your bags in a locker there (2 € coin which is returned when you unlock) and go through the inspection by the rude little man checking the tickets... More

We like this museum a lot as Renee Magritte was from Belgium. The museum was nicely laid out. Be sure to get the head sets as the museum will be infinitely more interesting and make much mores sense (they are not expensive & you will get a great experience). They take you through in stages of his life (sort of... More

I'm a fan of Magritte's works, so I loved the museum. I was there during spring and it was crowded with anxious tourists and noisy school kids with their loud-speaking teachers. To enter, I had to wait in a long line, even tough I arrived before opening. Maybe in winter it's better to visit, with less people (at least I... More
