In Truth, really did not know much about the artis, but was hoping to be intrigued by the work. 8euros for the Museum and 4€ for the audio guide. I liked the lay out. Easy to move about. Free lockers. Starts off with his early...More

If you are not familiar with the works of Magritte before you go, I would recommend giving this gallery a miss. All of his big works were missing, despite the Museum using them as advertising material and the text was poorly translated. The rhetoric failed...More

Definitely recomended to visit this museum. With Brussel card you can visit three sections of Royal Museum of Fine Arts of Belgium - but ofcourse the Magritte is the best part. Perfect collection of Magritte paintings on three floors with great atmosphere. Pity is that...More

Big effort of presenting life and overview of oeuvre - but key paintings are missing. Overcrowded, in spite of advance booking. And certainly don't try to take prams or your small children' s little foldable scooters - lengthy discussions of security concerns ensue. Staff, however,...More

Reading other recent reviews, I didn't even know it was a 50th anniversary celebrating Magritte's death. I did not care for this special exhibit at all. I had seen the MOMA NYC special exhibition of Magritte's work in 2013 and that was a far superior...More

When our second day in Brussels included rain in the forecast (and a weirdly huge fire that clouded the city with smoke and hard-to-breathe air), we decided to make our way to the Magritte museum. While I’m not a huge art nerd, I️ recognized some...More

Such a beautiful collection of this painter's work. During our visit there was special exhibition, making it even better. So many ideas come up when you look at the surrealistic pictures, such a thrilling experience.

Although I enjoy Magritte’s work, and this collection has some great pieces, the organisation of the museum is letting them down. I arrived at about 2pm and after the slow process of clearing security (needs must), I waited nearly 30 minutes just to buy a...More
