René Magritte Museum, Jette

(4.2/5 based on 1,600+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Nice discovery of this painter, who offers many surprises over the tables. See several times to collect I think... The documentary film in the end is very interesting and sheds better light on the work and personality of the artist

  • This Museum takes us into the poetic and confusing world of Magritte; of course the surrealist works but also lesser-known areas, advertising posters for example.

  • The Magritte Museum is located in the Centre of town-by pass. It is included in the complex of the Royal Museum of fine arts, so there are options when choosing a ticket-go to only one or all at once) Museum of unusual, very Chamber-not a Museum in the classic his understanding, as we have, such as Pushkin, Pushkin Museum of fine arts in Moscow. This is another: another feed, different mood and way of communication with the audience, this is the kind of game or charade, how actually and Surrealism) generally, very you are inspired. If you love the creativity of this artist-definitely recommend) and if you have never experienced such art-I advise you to "prepare"-a little read and about the artist, and about that time because any art is inextricably linked with the era in which the artist lived and worked.

  • It's a nice museum, but I expected something more. You will need an audio guide, if you don't speak french.
  • 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
  • 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.
  • Very nice and interesting. Don't miss it If you are an art lover
