I'm sure many of you have been to the large museum of Rene Magritte in the art quarter but did you know that you can visit the house the he and his wife lived in for 20 years in the Jette district of Brussels? It is not a big museum but it is worth the effect of finding it. The... More

When do you have the chance to see the home and workplace of one of the greatest painters of all times in its almost original state? If you like surrealist art, this is a must-see. Interesting fact: the museum features 30 painting from three local artists, trying to recover lost works of Magritte.

This museum is in the building that was once home to Rene Magritte and his wife for over 20 years. You have to ring the door bell to be admitted, and it's like stepping back in time. The ground floor is laid out much as it would have been when Rene (and his wife) lived there. Upstairs you pay your... More

Magritte Museum impressed us a lot, it was like a daydream journey in time. I liked the logistics – first the visitors enter the big elevator, and lifted up to the third floor, where the exposition begins. So eventually, for seeing the next halls all have to go down. Very clever idea. Halls are all darkened, designed like empty rooms... More

Wonderful house museum dedicated to the undisputed father of Belgian surrealism. It needs careful examination given the intricacy of some of his works, which require a thorough analysis. A must for fans of the genre. @gargio76

A truly must see in Brussels if you are interested in painting, surrealism and Magritte work. There's much more to discover than just paintings and its worthy of every minute.

Nice museum even if I did miss some of his best works. Besides that it is well organised and managed you can really learn about his life and his work.

The must see place in Brussels, there's a very good collection of Magritte's works not only paintings, the structure of the museum is also interesting and surrealistic.

I visited around 10.30 since the museum opened at 10 am. So many kindergarten students visiting, but they were very organised and sat in small circles. Really interesting to see young learners discussed arts and shared their perception.

Really strange paintings that really hold your interest. Worth an hour of your time to explore. A good rainy day activity in Brussels.
