Create an itinerary including Magritte Museum
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Magritte Museum and other Brussels attractions using our handy Brussels itinerary maker app.

  • The paintings are very pretty, and I appreciated that it's possible to understand the artist from a 360° point of view, also the staff is very nice. But THE LIGHTING of the rooms is awful! Sometimes it's very hard to fully see the paintings because the light reflects on them. They are so beautiful, please, make it possible to see the perfectly.
  • Beautiful museum. Saw many incredible paintings didn’t know existed and where simply breathtaking. Amazing artist and the museums honors him correctly. If you like art you must simply go. I bought my tickets in advance but you can also buy them there.
