Musée Magritte

Musée Magritte Review

After years sharing display space with his contemporaries in the neighboring Musée d'Art Moderne, Brussels's own surrealist genius René Magritte (1898–1967) was finally handed the honor of his own museum in 2009. You can reach it through an underground passage from the Musée d'Art Ancien, or enter via the separate entrance on place Royale where it is housed. Note: you must buy your tickets at the central desk in the Musée d'Art Ancien. An elevator on level two takes you to level three, where the collection starts. The exhibition traces Magritte's life and work chronically, expanding key moments through letters, sculptures, films, and of course, a great many fine canvases. There are around 200 paintings on display, including such masterpieces as the haunting The Empire of Light and The Domain of Arnheim.
