I had not a lot of time, so I visited the museum in a hurry. It is in the centre of the city, big enough, it hosts not only Magritte's paintings but also some other surrealists too (Dali, Miro etc). I was a little disappointed...More

Very good for those who like modern art, plenty to see as the museum is spread between several floors.

I visited the place, it was hauntingly beautiful, I liked the distribution of Magritte´s exhibition but I found out that his most famous artworks were in San Francisco. Anyway, take your time to visit this place, and trust me, get lost in the art with...More

Thankfully I read Dutch, but even Dutch was sparse. If you only read English, be sure to get a guide. Apart from this, the building was beautiful, the museum well organized and the exhibitions thoughtful and sensitive.

This is a good museum. If you like art then you should visit. If you are a Magritte fan, then you can't miss it. It's in the centre of Brussels, the museum area and quite easy to find.

This museum is a very important museum for the European history. Magritte was a Belgian surrealist artist. Must see!

Fairly compact museum spread gently over three floors and covering all aspects of Magritte’s artistic life. As others have said, there is a lack of his most famous works however I found his early and later work which, I assume, is less well known to...More

I don't know much about Magritte, but decided to visit this museum to learn. What was there was well presented, but many of the most famous works that you can purchase replicas of in the gift shop, were not actually displayed in the collection. So...More
