Magritte Museum, Brussels

4.0
#7 of 88 in Museums in Brussels
Dedicated to studying and displaying the work of Rene Magritte, Magritte Museum 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.

  • Surreal painter although Museum relatively succinct but necessary to better know Brussels

  • The collections of the Magritte Museum are truly exceptional. However, this museum is a real track game. never seen such a maze. Perhaps it is a surreal architectural bias in the image of the painter's work...

  • One would expect at least a few items that challenge your theory of the world and you will not be disappointed. But there is also ample information about the artist and his career, next to quite a few of his works. It helps of you are already into his work, it is not to everybody's taste.
  • Not a single famous or recognizable Magritte art work here. Very disappointing - especially when advertised as the worlds largest collection of Magritte. If you like to see his lesser known works, letters, home videos, and graphic design, they have those. The museum itself is a disappointment, terribly laid out, with millions of levels. At the entrance level they search bags and you must walk through a metal detector. Tickets are to be purchased on the -2 level. The Magritte exhibit starts on the third floor, but there’s a film is on the 1st, and there are no instructions or directions given on where to go. They also asked my backpack/ purse to be checked in a locker (free). The film was the most interesting part. It’s 10E for just the Magritte museum and 15E for the three museums combined, which is the ticket I bought. The three museums combined is a huge space with many steps and levels, and quite confusing.
