If the title caught your eye and continued reading, good on you. Those of you who know Rene Magritte well, he would often use the lines "This is not a ..." for the titles to his art pieces. This was one of the quirky facts about Magritte. A painting of a pipe with the title "This is not a Pipe" was meant to tell his viewers that the painting is a depiction of a pipe and not a real pipe. Similarly this is a review of Magritte Museum, not Magritte Museum itself.
Welcome to the world of Margritte when you step in. The musuem showcases both Magritte's work and his life story, which influenced his work. Many hailed Magritte as a genius and a creative artiste, and his life itself was very colourful. Claimed to be one of the first to use surrealism, his works very very intriguing. Visit the musuem to find out more about this man who influenced Belgium fine arts scene and his works.
The shop at the end will sell lots of books and other literary stuff on Magritte. Worth buying a trinket or 2 for memorabilia.
It cost me 8 euros for an adult ticket. My Eurostar ticket gave me a 2 for 1 museum pass so I paid a total 8 euros for my other half and I. All thanks to Eurostar.
4 stars overall for the memorable experience.
