This museum houses several different classifications of art divided into easy bites. You can buy a combo ticket or to just the bit you'd like to see. I like the Old Masters and the Magritte Museums.

Loved the Chagall exhibition. Old masters good but not great. Signage not great I had to ask constantly but staff were helpful. Lots of children on school excursions. Easy to find and not far from the centre of town.

I visited all four parts: oldmasters, modern, Magritte and fin de siecle. The weakest, in my opinion, was musee modern with quite a few exhibits, I don't think it is worth going to see just it alone. Musee oldmaster unfortunately had a lot of missing...More
