Very interesting and informative exhibition, for travelers interested in Magritte's life and work. The museum is not too big, so doesn't demand a lot of time to visit and it is right by the lovely park and Place Royale. First Wednesday of the month, after 1 pm admission is free!

We bought a combo ticket instead of just buying the ticket for just this museum. Each museum was 8 euros but the combo was 13 for anywhere from two of the museums to all five of them. The Magritte Museum was amazing. The art was beautiful and well worth the price of admission. It took us about an hour to... More

We very much enjoy Magritte’s work so it was a real treat to visit a whole museum dedicated to this fascinating artist. The accompanying audioguide was informative with interesting background information As well as the paintings there is much autobiographical material on view, but our main focus was on his actual work. There is a comprehensive selection of his paintings... More

Arriving at exactly 10:00 when the museum opened, did not need to book tickets on line. The place was empty. This is a relaxing start to the tourist day. Once you've parked your bags in a locker there (2 € coin which is returned when you unlock) and go through the inspection by the rude little man checking the tickets... More

We like this museum a lot as Renee Magritte was from Belgium. The museum was nicely laid out. Be sure to get the head sets as the museum will be infinitely more interesting and make much mores sense (they are not expensive & you will get a great experience). They take you through in stages of his life (sort of... More

I'm a fan of Magritte's works, so I loved the museum. I was there during spring and it was crowded with anxious tourists and noisy school kids with their loud-speaking teachers. To enter, I had to wait in a long line, even tough I arrived before opening. Maybe in winter it's better to visit, with less people (at least I... More

This museum was extremely well done. I was not very familiar with the artist before I went here and I was really blown away. Really incredible work. The layout of the Museum was also very easy to follow.

Obviously if you are a Magritte officiando then you'll be seeking out this part of the museum but if you aren't we'd suggest you give this one a miss. The museum is reasonably well laid out, but the content is sadly uninteresting and in our opinion (art is truly subjective after all) Magritte just isn't very good! There were many... More

The kind of place where you go and after the tour you are much smarter. The audio guide was very efficient.
