I love Magritte's art, so it was very nice to see this museum with the rooms very nice separated and organized. One can understand much about Magritte's story and ideas through it. The most famous paintings weren't there, but it is worth while anyway! If you love art, you can spend until 3 hours in it. And have fun in... More

For me, this part of Royal museums, museum Magritte, is the highlight of Bruxelles! I really loved the museum.It is on 3 floors. Each floor represents a period in his life and work. Yes, maybe there are not many of his most popular/known paintings, but I was not disappointed.On the contrary! Plus, my favorite Dali painting was there! I did... More

The museum features an extensive collection of the artist's works, from throughout his career. On this, it cannot be faulted. All the text is in French or Dutch, so if you're an English speaker, there is not much added insight (although I'm guessing the audio guide would solve this). On the day we visited, trying to buy a ticket was... More

I was very underwhelmed by this museum. Maybe they had a lot of pieces out on loan, but I would describe this collection of his work as meh.

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...

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.
