The Magritte Museum is a must for anyone interested in the artist. It is multi-level in chronological order and includes excellent background on his life as well as an important sampling of his work at each stage of his career. Because of the museum's approach,...More

The paintings match with the theme of each floor of the gallery. However, the information of the paintings is not well exhibited. The audio guide is terrible that a lot of code is not valid. Good for surrealist!
