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.

Well presented collection of Magritte's works and times, as well as placing his presence in the historic era during his lifetime. Well documented exhibit.

In a stunning building with beautiful views down into Brussels and Grand Place, this exhibition is set over 3 floors. From Magritte's early work creating advertising pieces to his journey though paintings and sculpture, this is a walk though a mans life I didn't really know much about other than his bowler hat movement. Worth a visit!

Interesting review of Magritte's life as an artist and certainly he is highly regarded in Brussels. We should have gotten the audio guide in English as the write ups were only in French and Dutch.

Booked ahead to secure a time although not sure if necessary. Worth noting that there is a combined entrance for several museums. Very helpful staff and a very efficient entry system. The museum has a great mixture of paintings, printed works and films and is a fascinating two hours. And on a hot day the climate control!!

I think the actual building for this museum is really pretty. I like the interiors and the rooms and layout and general flow of the museum. The exhibit itself was fine there are some pieces that are really cool but a lot of it is sorta boring. My friend took me here as it's one of her favorite museums and... More
