The Musée René Magritte was formerly the home of one of Belgium’s most famous painters, the surrealist René Magritte. Today his home has been transformed with authentic furniture and architecture that transports you back to the world of the early 20th century as a young Magritte. The aim is to allow the visitor to live through the eyes of the great painter and to offer inspiration to the aspiring artist.
The museum does a fantastic job at achieving this aim and really lets you see how the young Magritte did his work. Most of his paintings are now located in the nearby National Art Museum but many remain in the Musée René Magritte to display his brilliance. One of the best museums in Belgium which offers you a completely new experience compared to other galleries.
