Great museum, just a bit small. Do not expect to see the most popular works of Rene, only less known ones are there. Great and informative audio guide. Worth a visit.
Simple, medium-sized, beautiful museum dedicated to Magritte, whose work I love. The audio guide is very helpful and gives way more information than the written descriptions. Worth it to me. Entry was a little confusing because you go to the basement for tickets and then take the elevator to the top. The exhibition works its way down. We went on the first Tuesday of the month and entrance was free. Check website to see if that’s consistent.
If you like Magrit this is the place. The exhibition is excellent and contains not only his work but also his quotes, photos and other memorabilia. What I liked most is that at the beginning of every part of the exhibition (every floor) there is a written summary of what happened to the painter in the years when he created the work presented on said floor. That way, you can imagine how we was influenced when creating the art you are seeing.
An obligated visit while in Brussels. Magritte is perhaps the best known Belgian modern painter. There are paintings of all his periods from naive to surrealist. I must confess I got acquainted with Magritte work about 40 years ago when he was not as known. I enjoyed the museum very much. there is also a small museum in what used to be his house, not far from the Magritte museum
Very sad to see that lots of the most famous paintings of Magritte were not there. The lighting isn't very good on the big paintings, as it is right above it, so when you are in front, you have that huge light spot in the middle of the painting, so you have to look it from the side to get rid of the effect. On the good point, the dark atmosphere and the AC were really nice and more than welcome in a hot weather. There are some spots to sit at each floor, it is also pretty nice. Good choice of museum if you want to rest a bit during your Brussels visit.
Only museum I went to in Brussels. The building and layout of the exhibitions is one kid the best I’ve seen, and the lighting inside is perfected. The AC is also very welcome too. However, be warned that a lot of Magritte’s most famous works are in San Francisco now and won’t be back until October!

Gave a view into his life and art but (as other reviewers have noted) does not contain any of his major works. There were also numerous works missing as they were on loan. The museum assumes you have some degree of familiarity with surrealism. Audioguide is an absolute necessity.
8 euros for adults, don't recommend the 4 euro audio guide because you don't really learn much. Paintings are top notch. Surrealist art is stuff anyone can appreciate because it's more modern and less abstract. I recommend watching a YouTube video about surrealist art before coming because there is no explanation there, only paintings.
A very well done museum about the great Magritte. I have always enjoyed his work, and loved seeing early works, photographs, and drawings by him, as well as lots of paintings I have never seen. Loved the dark ambiance of the galleries, and even though it was quite busy you felt like you had it all to yourself. Very cleverly designed exhibition spaces, as the typical white box experience would not make as much sense for Magritte. If ever you wanted to buy a book on Magritte, surrealism, or any merch, the shop has it all, in French. Wish I could have bought some books!
In half dark halls, you can gaze at the art of an amazing artist. To understand better the work, I recommend to take an audio guide at the entrance. It's a must visit!
Very lovely collection covering largely the life of Magritte. Though there is a lot to see, you should definitely take the audio guide, as the written info, though in three languages, is sparse. Don't expect a best of, but a nice overview of a great artist. You'll spend between one and three hours there.
Nice visit but masterpieces are not there. The museum wasn't well organized. There were a long queue for getting the tickets with no information for the visitor. Price is 8€ for adults and the audioguide is 2€. There are lockers available to leave your stuff and have a more comfortable visit. The museum it's organized in three floors showing different ages of Magritte life. As described above, some masterpieces are not in this museum so the visit is good but not complete.
Excellent museum with interesting displays and historic perspective on the artist's life and works. Not too expensive either. Great way to spend a few hours. Adjoins to other galleries also worth a visit
Very nice insight into the life and work of René Magritte. Museum is modern, clean and spans across three floors each covering a different time period in Magritte's life. Spent €8 for one adult entry and I would say it was worth the 1-2 hours spent there. I didn't get an audio tour and I think I would do so next time, as it would have given me even more insight to some of his work.
