René Magritte Museum, Jette

#5 of 89 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.

  • It's definitely a small museum for connoisseurs. Magritte's works are certainly important and interesting. The history of this artist is full of successes but his most important works here are not there and this greatly diminishes the value of the monothematic structure. We still recommend that you see it.

  • Amazing!! The staff are so passionate and well informed and his house is so lovely to visit. So many places and objects that inspired many of his paintings are here
  • Small and simple museum on the life of René Magritte, allowing for a glimpse into the more intimate life of the man, as well as some lesser known works (such as his advertising posters). I recommend downloading the free audio guide on Cloudguide (mobile app).
