This new museum is very well constructed. It provides a wide collection of the famous Belgian painter Renee Magritte. The path through the museum is very well thought through making it very enjoyable for all ages

Really nice museum! If you pass for Brussels you can not lose it! It's really cheap (like 2euro for student and guys under 26) but also really nice, precious and well-explained! I loved it!

This visit was disappointing not because of the content but because of layout and lighting. The movement of people did not flow. People did not know where to begin in each section and in fact I don't think there was a start point so they were constantly bumping into each other. Sometimes due to the light you had to stand...

I was there on a Sunday morning after a Hungarian friend suggested this visit. A really amazing exhibition, extensive, well organized, comprehensive, educating not only about the artist himself but also abut the era, the art, the personalities of the time etc. All in three languages - French, Flemish and English it extended on 3 floors and it was a...

the museum is great as the exhibit is organized in a kind of timeline of Magritte's life and career. There are chronologies of his life as you enter each room, and his art is mostly displayed in the same order. Therefore it is interesting to see how he evolved as he played around with different styles during his life. The... More

As someone who isn't big in to looking at art... this building displayed artwork to capture the imagination of both art loving individuals and those who art as much that way inclined.
