We only had an hour to spend here before our train home, so the visit was short, but it was definitely worth it. There's amazing contextual material about Magritte's life and work and so many paintings and sculptures. If you can, try to allow time to see the other museums - you can purchase a ticket for all three. Not... More

If you like Magritte, this is a required stop. Lots of history about the man, his contemporaries and his time. Laid out chronologically, you literally walk through his life as you go from floor to floor.

visiting or living in Brussels - it is a must to see the Magritte Museum. Magritte is a very important Belgium artist. If possible get a museums guide. Don't know what it is in Belgium, but the museums guide I ever had, are sp passionate about their Belgium Artist, that the tours are not boring. They talk so lively and... More

I recall going to the Magritte museum about 20 years ago, and being quite pleased with it. This time I felt a bit cheated in that there was not much to see On the plus side I gained an insight into the diversity of his technique, and could see the progress from his early days, thru to the art that...

My husband and I went with our 4 year old son and enjoyed it very much. 4 or so levels of his work and life story. Definitely worth a visit.

This museum has a very impressive collection of Magritte's works. From early days to the filan days of his career. Of course, not all of his works you can see there, but you'll like it - I'm sure. Especially I would suggest to see the "Empire of Light" series - very impressive!

The exhibition is very well done. The dark wall colours make the exhibition pieces come to life, and I loved the quotes everywhere. I also loved the fact that they were only in French and Dutch (I am all about authenticity), with the English translation in a book you can take home. The only negative thing I can say is... More

What a waste- loads of photos of Margrette and his family. Most of his work seems to be copied from Dali. No imagination- waste of time.

I was taught about Magritte at school but my boyfriend didn't know about him, so when we decided to go to Brussels and I told it was a must-see. The museum is really interesting, and my accessing Magritte's exhibition you can also access other exhibitions. Students tickets are very cheap by the way (if I remember well, 5€ for all... More
