not really one for the 'tourist' gallery visitor in my opinion. You'd have to be really into your art to appreciate this one. Not much info to explain the works or the art movement as a whole, I found it a little dull unfortunately.

Located in the heart of the city, Place Royale, just minutes walk from the train stration (we came from paris), The building has been superbly restored in early 1980's and it´s a charming place. Take a walk outside to see some sculptures. the museum is... More

This is a collection of many, many Magritte works from throughout his life. The audioguide really led me to understand how his art developed over the years. A wonderful afternoon spent sinking into Magritte's world.

This was our second time visiting the museum and we enjoyed it just as much as the first time. It chronicles his life through video, paintings and other artefacts. Set over several floors, there is lots of seating. The museum, which has a large café in the main part, is part of the collection of museums in this area, near... More

As a big fan of Magritte this is a great gallery and somewhere I have been several times already. Next to the museum of fine art (also worth visiting), this has all the must see paintings and items. There is a good museum shop and a great bar/restaurant in the main museum. Really worth a visit.

I'm biased - Magritte has always been a favorite artist. The Museum curates his vision and art from the very beginning, and touches on his relationship with Georgette, a lot. The audio guide helped capture a lot of details. My only complaint is that I wanted more!

In over 2.500 m² you can admire here more than 200 works of the very talented founder of Surrealism. Not only oil on canvas and drawnings, but also posters, gouaches, musical ideas and so on. The annexed Royal Museums of Fine Arts contains further interesting pieces of modern and pre-modern art: Rubens, Brueghel father & son, Delvaux. You can buy... More

I like very much this style called sur-realism. The museum has 3 parts from different moment the painter Magritte was making paintings. The shop has cool Magritte souvenirs. I recommend you go visit this place!
