Wonderful Brueghel and Rubens. The Rene Magrittte exposition taking you through his life with descriptions of key events in his life, his artistic development and examples of each period was great. But I had never heard of Leon Frederic and the Triptych of the family of Chalk Sellers. It tells a powerful story. Downer, was the poor lighting of some paintings. Plus, use 2 for 1 available with Eurostar ticket.

There were so many exhibits to see it was almost too much to take in, but some of the works were just top quality.
I'd not heard of most of the artists, but I don't think that matters if the paintings are great.
Well worth a visit.

My husband and I have enjoyed many incredible museums in Western Europe--the Royal Museum of Fine Arts is on our list of favorites. Every painting demanded our attention. The museum is well laid out and easy to traverse. Of course, the "easy" is only within each of the three sections; however transitioning between each museum wasn't overly difficult. We began our adventure in the Magritte. The audio guide was worthwhile.

My favourite epicentre for art- grazing in Brussels holds centre court because its twin museums in a sprawling complex that houses the country's best all-round art collection, especially the Magritte Museum. Your entry ticket price gives you access to the Ancient Art Museum, as well as, the Fin de Siecle.
If Flemish and Belgian art,typical of the 14th-18th centuries,brightens up your day, then Nirvana is in your path. there is a packed house of dazzling masterpieces with the pantheon -leaders ..... Bruegel, Bosch, Van der Weyden and Rubens leading the way. Titanic canvasses move you towards a contextual look at art of the 19th and 20th century with a delightful accent on Art Nouveau.
To avoid paying an entrance fee, time your visit to the first Wednesday of the month,when Belgian taxpayers will subsidise your visit for free...gratis..zip....... But only after 1.00 pm Seriously though, for the price of a couple of waffles, you can get a combo ticket for 13 euros entitling you access to all the above plus a must- have audio guide for 9 euros.

I visited Old masters and Fin-de-Siecle museums. For those who love Art Nouveau, Fin-de-Siecle (recently opened) is nice place to introduce (if not earlier) few (for me less known) but really considerable authors. There are also some pieces of furniture from the Seccesion period. Museum is really big and if you have limited time for visit you should carefully manage your time. I spent a lot of time in the Old masters and so did not have enough time for the Fin-de-Siecle Museum for which, I realised afterwards, I had more interest.
