The Fine Arts Museum is huge and too much to cover in one visit. One wing is dedicated to the work of Rene Magritte and it is a comprehensive collection. It is based on three levels, and the lift for entry takes you up to 3rd floor and you then work your way down. This is surrealism at its best... More

As a big fan of Magritte I have really enjoyed this museum. It is not too big and can be seen in 1-2 hours. I didn't take the audio guide which I kind of regret. The gift shop has many interesting things...

This museum, obviously dedicated to Magritte, isn't too time consuming and houses many of his less known works. If you are going here, don't be expecting many of his famous pieces. The shop is great and the price is affordable. You have to buy tickets in a certain building that connects to four different city museums. This whole process is... More

Enjoyed the Magritte Museum, reasonably priced, audio guide was informative, enjoyed the journey through his life, although it is the biggest collection of his work left feeling slightly disappointed I had not seen more of his famous work.

...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...
