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.

René Magritte Museum reviews
It took us more than an hour by train, tram and walk from central Brussels but we go there and it really was wonderful to see how Magritte and his wife lived in this house with many artefacts about..... more »
Rene Magritte House Museum is not the same as Rene Magritte Museum. The price was more affordable than the Museum closer to centre. This was a good trip if you're visiting the Atomium as you can see..... more »
Great staff for an amazing afternoon performance between Magritte, jazz & poetry! What a way to #ComebackBrussels! Highly recommend for an afternoon visit to Jette!
To be visited if you like the painter, great insight on his life
