Museum is amazing and very new. Displays pieces of Magritte work during all his phases. If you are going with small children be aware that they might not be allowed in some galleries.

This is a very extensive exhibit about Magritte's life and association with other artist of his time. It's worth purchasing the head set, which was 4 Euro; fyi, you can probably share one.

If you are a fan of his famous painting "This is not a pipe", you will LOVE the rest of his collection! Highly informative and not too long to visit with kids: NOT to be missed

There was a queue to get in the museum and security to go through, but it is worth the hassle. The gallery is spread over several floors and is truly a spectacle to see. Even if your not an art fan, you're sure to find some paintings that will blow you away.

I adored our visit here, and I learned a ton about Magritte. The museum did not have many of his major works, so if you're expecting some of his most iconic images, you will be disappointed. But there was a lot here and it's well tagged and arrange.

The prices for museums are quite high, but this one is worth to visit. Make sure you take the audio gide - without it it would be so interesting.

The museum has some interesting pieces and spaces. They have a couple of very iconic pieces and many smaller pieces that are unexpected but lovely. But I felt surprised they have relatively few major works; I think many are in other museums or collections around the world. I certainly recommend it if you like Magritte or the surrealist movement. If... More

It is one of the best museums you can visit in Brussels, of course, if you like modern painters. I saw there practically all the key paintings of Rene Magritte. He is one of my favourite surrealists. But when you go there, be sure to check, if those are present and not borrowed to other museums or galleries. Really nice... More
