Layout was great, but not much of the work he's famous for. Only allow you to carry small handbag, but plenty of lockers. Excellent value with the other museums,

Not just his paintings, but lots of his photos, sketches, etc. Entrance fee a little steep, in comparison with similar galleries, etc. But still worth it, if you like Surrealism.

A very well done exhibit on Belgian Rene Magritte. It has a good historical perspective, and shows the development of his art.

I've been several times to this museum, if you want to understand Belgium, you need to get to know Magritte. Visiting his house is a addition to visiting the permanent expo of his art at Bozar. Visiting his house enlightens the eye of the visitor as to understand Magritte's view of the world.

I've had a real interest in magritte and his work for quite some time, the museum did a great job in giving me context for the works he produced which are on display in the museum, however there is this obvious gaping hole when it comes to his most notable works i.e. their absence... well that is until you get...

One of the newest Brussels museums, it is modern and very nicely appointed - one can learn a lot about magritte, his time, life and Europe actually. If you have little time in Brusels, do not miss this most Belgian experience!
