3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

It's a small museum, despite being the biggest Magritte colection, the main master pieces aren't here...

“Maybe for the Magritte fan”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

I was somewhat familiar with his work and was hoping to be wowed into becoming a fan, but that didn't happen. His work is interesting, but not engaging. The museum does have a lot of his work, but almost none of the works that people would recognize.

“I could stay forever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

From the first painting I was lost. I lost time and space, it was so interesting. I guess I stayed for very long - it seemed like everyone passed me when i tried to get the most out of every picture, knowing that I wont come back for long. I've known Rene Magritte from books and articles on the Internet, still I was astonished. It was a wonderful day in a wonderful museum.
