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.

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.

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.

The museum holds a vast and wonderful collection of Magritte's works, including less known and interesting advertising works. The black painted interior is atmospheric and perfectly highlights the light and shade games Magritte liked to play. The museum shop is wonderful in off itself. Highly recommended, not just for rainy days.

An excellent collection, exclusively Magritte. Well-designed, with some very cool pieces, including advertisements he made early in his career. The discussion of the man himself was a bit limited, and works of his contemporaries would have been welcome.

It was a little confusing that the entrance is not where you see the Magritte Museum signs, it is thru the other bigger art museum and then you have to go in, thru, down & around (annoying). Other than that it was fabulous! I have to admit I have been a fan of Magritte for many years so my opinion... More

Visited the exhibition in January and is totally perfect, museography is also praiseworthy. Magritte's pieces are absolutely wonderful, the museum structure is very good and its very cheap.
