Art Museum
Housed in the home where he lived for 24 years, René Magritte Museum paints a picture of the life of the Belgian surrealist painter. Rene Magritte, world-renowned for his surrealist painting, lived in this house from 1930 to 1950. Walk the same halls as did the celebrated painter, and see where he created roughly half of his works, including many of his masterpieces. On five floors, the museum displays 200 of Magritte's paintings, including "Scheherazade," "The Return," and "The Empire of Light." See beyond Magritte's paintings as you explore the ground floor, decorated as it would have looked when the artist occupied the home. Take a look at our Brussels vacation trip planner to schedule your visit to René Magritte Museum and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • This is the home of Magritte Museum. Small spaces but well styled. I am a great admirer of the painter and for this I really liked (tral'altro cordial girls giving the brochure containing the various explanations for each room and opera). If you're not a big fan Council, however, only the museum itself.

  • It's a nice museum, but I expected something more. You will need an audio guide, if you don't speak french.
  • This museum is the house Magritte lived in. The art aren't the originals. The house is kind of in the middle of nowhere but worth a visit if you a big fan of Magritte.
  • Beautiful quaint museum
  • I love this little museum. The other museum, in the center of town is great to see a lot of real works, but this museum, the former house of Magritte, still has the atmosphere of it's former owner, and his wife, in it. It makes you feel closer to him, and there is so much to see on every floor. A lot of objects and some interesting copies. A hidden Gem!
  • Height plz i'ts really good guys check it
