As I've said in the past, I tend not to add my two cents worth to places that have thousands of reviews. However, I feel compelled to when my experience goes against the consensus. That's true of Musee Magritte. Let me say that Magritte is one of my favorite artists, and so I had high expectations going into this. The... More

An artist known to other members of my family, the exhibition itself is extensive and well presented. You will leave feeling that this is time very well spent.

Wonderfully situated close to the Museum of Fine Arts. I had only a basic knowledge of Magritte's life and works and this was one of the places I really wanted to go to during a short visit to Brussels. I was fascinated from start to finish and took about 2 hours to see (and read) everything here. The building is... More

This museum is a must for art's lovers. Entrance fee is totally reasonable (8€ for just the Magritte Museum, 13€ if combined with the others). On display also some works from Dalì E Di Chirico. Excellent museum!

My husband wasn't that interested for the museum at first but as soon as we entered he loved René's art The way that they divided his work was really exciting

I am an avid Dalí fan but this museum may have changed my mind! I was blown away by the paintings and the information. The paintings were very mind-opening and thought-provoking. I did not get the audio guide but if I would have I imagine I would have enjoyed it even more! Some scripture is in English, but even though... More

Definitely check out this museum - it has some great Magritte pieces and is an excellent space. When we went it was not crowded at all, and we were able to get through it in about 1.5 hours, taking out time. I think even those who are not as excited about art as I am would enjoy it.
