Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium, Brussels
Categories: Art Museums, Museums
Dedicated to studying and displaying the work of Rene Magritte, Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium 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.

Pour les amateurs de la peinture surréaliste, un must !

There could be more objects by Magritte. The illumination and presentation is awful and oldfashioned.
Unfortunately, approximately 20 paintings were removed for restoration purposes (there was a ceiling leak) so the collection isn't at full strength. Despite this disappointment the Bruegel room and Bruegel box (a projected display of three paintings) made up for the missing paintings. The Magritte museum which is in the same complex was fantastic!
Old masters museum: huge halls for just a few paintings, mostly very very poorly illuminated. Very very disappointing. The main hall is nice. But I was there to see paintings, not the building. The old masters museum is a very limited collection. Get well informed before visiting. Unless you want to see something very specific, I don't think it's worth the time. I mean, most paintings have ZERO illumination. What else can I say???
The most beautiful and big museum of Brussels. A must visit!
Haven't seen the exhibitions, but it's here you have to buy tickets for the Magritte museum. They have a non professional security check, but they were working effectively.
Wonderful art collection and a an enjoyable museum experience.
