A three floor museum devoted to the work of one of my favourite painters, and NOT AN ICONIC painting to be seen!!! No bowler hats, no apples, etc. Apparently they are all abroad, lots in USA. Would not have bothered to come all this way...More

I'm not a huge art fan but my partner wanted to visit. I was pleasantly surprised at the paintings and in the end wasn't a bad way to spend a few hours. Remember if you come to Brussels via the Eurostar, you get 2 for...More

It's a wonderful gallery, comparable to the Van Gogh in Amsterdam where such a great name in Surrealism can be known in a chronology of events, work, story and art through the 3/4 floors. Seeing this museum has only made me an even bigger fan...More
