René Magritte Museum, Jette

4.2
#5 of 67 in Museums in Brussels
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.

    For me, this museum has become an addition to the Royal Art Museum. It was interesting to pass through its halls, but can't say that Magritte-my favorite artist ...

    My friend and I spent a very long time in the Magritte museum. We didn't know anything about him beforehand and left feeling well educated and absolutely in love with his works and his family life.  more »

    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.

    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!
