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.

Reading the previous reviews, I have to agree that finding and getting to the museum is a bit confusing. 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 ). Suggest you use one of the portable devices to get the... More

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
