I was familiar with Magritte's work and I really enjoyed visiting the museum and learning more about the artist, his life and work. The museum is beautifully curated and the artworks are well displayed. Also the museum shop has a nice variety of products from books to decorative objects.

I had been a fan [but no more than that] of the works of Magritte until I visited this. I left fascinated, intrigued, excited and with the feeling that I had gained rea,l fresh insights into dimensions of his work, his view of the world and, significantly, my own limitations. What I had previously seen as excellence, I now see... More

Very good range of work , from early poster work, up to mid sixties.A lot of his well known work, and some I had never seen even though I am a big fan.Excellent half day.

Belgians could not do anything else than dedicating a museum to one of their most famous nationals. A great collection, very well displayed.

I would recommend this museum highly. The museum explains so much about Magritte, his life and the different stages of his career as an artist and it does this very well. If you travel here by Eurostar you may be able to get in 2 for 1 using your train ticket.

Not knowing much at all about Magritte I was talked into visiting this museum. However, I'm glad. Firstly, many museums offer concessions, so as a 24 year old my ticket only cost €2. The museum is well laid out & has been clearly thought through - there are a variety of different kinds of exhibit and installation and the art... More

Do not expect the see the well-known masterpieces. Unless you are fan of this artist or, at least, of modern art, not the best choice to spend time in Brussels

Everything about Magritte. His work is chronologically displayed on 3 floors with explanations from his life. I also liked the soft music and dusky environmlent in the museum.
