Using your city tourist map or google maps on your iPhone will get you there but follow the signs on where to purchase your general tickets ( 8 euros ).

An excellent collection of his works throughout his lifetime. I always liked his art before; now I am a real fan. There's an immense amount of depth and span to his artwork. The gift shop has lots of great stuff, too.

The Magritte museum contains a significant number of the artist's production, albeit not the most famous. It's stretched chronologically over three floors. The setup is bizarre. You have to first go down to floors to enter the museum to then take an elevator to the third floor to start the exhibit. There are quite a bit of documents such as... More

We were eager to see the Magritte museum. It was crowded, yet dull, and pretty short. They seem to have relatively few of his works, focusing more on documentation and words (few in English). It was not worth the wait in line, although I liked "Georgette in sections" on the elevator. I wish I had spent the time in the... More

This museum is a pretty good way to spend 20 minutes, but that's all. The exhibition is really short and consequently doesn't have many of his famous pieces: The Son of Man and The Treachery of Images being notable absentees. Having said that, the gift shop has a wonderfully inventive array of Magritte goodies. The Magritte mirror and blue sky... More

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
