Fabulous collection of French, Belgian, Dutch and other European art, the highlight for me being seeing David's masterpiece The Death of Marat. Incredible!

Easy to get there with tram 93. Essential to try to discover and to understand the deeper meanings of Magritte's art. Very bourgeois environment. Surrealism as an escape from an unbearable ordinary life.

Specific melancholy of this place allowes to learn more about the atmosphere of Belgium. It allowes you to forget about the world outside, and immerse yourself in the world of imagination of that particular artist.

You have to get a timed-reservation on line -- it is really a three story house in the middle of a block in a residential area. Ring the door bell at the time appointed on your ticket and someone will let you in. They have...More

Very off the beaten track museum: the house where Magritte lived and worked. It has many of his works and exposes his professional work, largely in Advertising
