Magritte Museum Musée Magritte, Brussels

(3.9/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web)
Dedicated to studying and displaying the work of Rene Magritte, Magritte Museum Musée Magritte combines education with exhibits. The collection is one of the largest and most diverse of Magritte's work and took many years, and many donations, to collect. Magritte's paintings, drawings, posters, and advertising work fill the walls with surreal images. These artworks are arranged by period on three floors spanning from 1898 to 1967 and Magritte's later "Enchanted Domain" periods. Your tour ends in a cinema that screens both films inspired by Magritte's work and films he enjoyed. Book tickets online or purchase them when you arrive, but be aware that with a reserved ticket you use the Place Royale entrance, whereas if you are purchasing a ticket, enter from the Rue de la Régence. Consider purchasing a combination ticket that includes all the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium.

  • Before I visited this museum I knew very little about Magritte, aside from his more famous work. However, this museum is very accessible and gave me a lot of insight into his life, motivations, and hi...  more »
  • By mistake I entered the Royal Museum of fine arts, was in the Magritte Museum. Magritte and written on the ticket, I realized. Magritte in Brussels-born painter, works are exhibited along with a description of his life. Would the vast exhibit floor has 3 floors, are not, or not enough in about an hour. No description of the picture not borrow audio guide (charges apply), there were strange. I think that had a picture once in a while have taken prohibited mark, shooting and other possible.

  • Not enough information in English, many things are only in Dutch and French. Otherwise a great museum, I enjoyed it a lot. They can't boast the great masterpieces by Magritte, but the ones they have are interesting, too.
  • Really good chronological presentation of Magritte's work. There aren't many famous paintings, but the history of his art and the progression are fascinating to see. One of the highlights in Brussels for visitors!
  • A great collection of historical information about Magritte's life and an especially great collection of his early printmaking works. As Magritte was a commercial artist who sold most of his most famous works this collection might be disappointing to some, but I found it fascinating to see some of his lesser documented works in person. Also, a multi-ticket with the Royal Museum of Fine Arts makes this a bargain. Recommended to fans of art and Surrealism.
  • A chronological presentation of the artist's life, his circle, style evolution in a broader context of history & artistic movements. Plenty of documents, aside from his works. You can either stop by for a brief tour, if pressed for time, or spend a few hours - equally worthwhile. Do not miss the museum shop!!
  • I'd known of Magritte's work apparently, but not who he was. This exhibit is wonderfully curated with some of his great works and a wonderful exposition on the man and his milieu.
