Visit to see the Magritte Exhibit. I am not sure how long it will be open but it is nicely designed and contains some rare pieces. Amazing!

I really enjoyed this gallery. 3 different areas all very different from each other. Pay the £13 to see all three. Curated in a very different way from many other important Art galleries which kept you interested and intrigued

Very nice and cozy museum. All , undergrounded, with no direct light flowing inside (unlike the Magritte museume). Nice artworks, but the creme-de-la-creme is the art nouvou works at the very low level. Cool elevator as well- you can sit there.

We visited the Royal Museum today and we were both delighted with the Bruegel paintings as well as the extensive collection of Rubens and Van Dyke. The collection was quintessential Belgium - quirky, randomly ordered, and yet somehow it all made sense. Not the Louvre...More
