I was so glad when I saw this place come up on TripAdvisor while searching for things to do on our day trip to Brussels. If you don't like surrealism, don't bother. This museum has some great stuff, and a lot of it will make you turn your head sideways and contemplate the meaning. This is my favorite thing about... More

The musem to visit in Brussels with the Royal Museum of Art (it is at the same location with separate entry). It is a quite new attractive designed museum with a wonderful collection of this iconic belgium painter of Surrealism (like Delvaux) and a good approach to understand the unique mind of belgium people with a very different view of...

A wonderful museum dedicated to Magritte, part of the complex of Belgian national museums in Brussels. The modest entrance fee is worth the expense - I only wish we'd had more time to visit the other adjacent museums. Dimly-lit galleries chart the work of Magritte through a well though-out series of rooms featuring ephemera, music, movies and - of course... More

So you may or may not like Magritte, but after you visit everyone will be convinced of his contribution to the age of surrealism and to twentieth-century art in general.

magritte s surrealism has left a huge impact on modern art /seeing it firsthand was really magical and soothing/what a great artist/everything you see around you there in belgium has been captured somehow in the light of his paintings/the mystery of words vs reality another puzzling phenomena in his art...truly enlightening

Was high on my list for years. Finally visited the exhibition. Visited the Magritte home in Jette, Brussels 6 years ago, definitely worth a go!! Magritte painted several murals in the casino of Knokke, Belgium at the seaside. One has to attend an event to be able to see them, but sometimes you might get a bit of a view... More

A good selection of the great man's work,well laid out and interesting. Magritte's paintings are scattered all over the world so you don't see everything you wanted but still an impressive collection.

As much as I love Magritte, I put this museum a must go on my list. If you are a student, the discounted price will only be 3 euro, which was significantly lower than my expectation. (the ticket also included the admission the the royal museum). Basically I was contented with all the art works this museum presented: everything. However,... More

Arrived at the museum a little before 10am on the first Saturday of 2015 only to see crowds of people waiting around a tiny paper sign on the entrance saying that the museum of fine arts (Magritte museum is part of this larger museum) has new hours in 2015 and would not open until 11am on weekends. A bit annoyed,... More

The Magritte exhibition is located in the Royal Museum of Fine Art. At a cost of 8 Euros, one has the opportunity to view examples of Magritte’s work from different phases of his life. Not all of his works are exhibited, noticeably ‘The Son of Man’ but other famous works such as ‘Black Magic’ are. My regret in not hiring... More
