The six museums of the Royal Museums of Fine Arts of Belgium contain some of Europe's greatest artistic and cultural heritage - drawings, prints, decoratives, furniture, sculptures, and paintings. There are four museums at this location, with the same opening hours and a combined ticket (the Magritte Museum has its own building adjacent to the main building). The main museums out of these are the Musee Fin-de-Siecle which contains turn of the century art from Brussels between 1868 and 1914. Mostly paintings, but also smatterings of literature, furniture, decorative arts, architecture, photography, opera, music, and poetry.
The Magritte Museum is named after Rene Magritte, who was Belgium's favourite surrealist. He created paintings, drawings, photography and sculptures. It is housed in an exquisite neoclassical building named Hotel Altenloh. The Musee Modern Museum is another museum that covers art from the 18th century to contemporary times, this museum also regularly rotates its arts exhibits. It even has a comic strips section. The Musée Old Masters Museum has artwork from masters of Southern Netherlands between 15th to the 19th centuries. This museum was founded by Napoleon Bonaparte.
The beautiful building in which these paintings are housed, the exquisite Palais des Beaux-Arts. It was built in 1887, and is one of the defining buildings of the Beaux Arts style.

Seven flowers of art, from Medieval to Nova days. Plus temporary collections (usually 2 - 3 months). There is presented an amazing collection of the old Flemish masters, like Bosch, Bruegel and Wan Eyck. The museum contains 4 separate exhibition, you can buy a ticket for one exhibition, or for all of them. Be ready to spend bout 2-3 hour to see all pictures. As a separate part of the museum, there is Rene Magritte collection. Try it , if you like surrealism.
impressed in every way I can be. exposition was really pretty, I saw everything I wanted to see. pleased by the whole vibe of gallery. also, kinda in city centre which makes this gallery super cool if you're sightseeing. it's 5minuted from cathedral and main square. strongly recommend
Lot's of great pieces. Ongoing Magritte expo was very unique. But to me personally, as a kid it used to be one of the great museums to visit in Brussels. Then I don't know when, they redid the inside, and it's not the same. Besides the main hall that is still an impressive room, the rest feels cheap and smaller. I think they tried to rejuvenate, appeal to a new crowd, but with limited budget, and they ended up taking the soul out of the place.
We went to the Berlin 1917 to 1933 exhibition. Nicely presented and was very interesting. The building itself is well worth a visit - beautiful.
Come every year to visit my favourite Bosch, Bruegels and Reubens(es). Gallery is *just* the right size, wonderfully laid out and lots of natural light. Some world class art right here, if you are a lover of Flemish art it is an absolute treasure trove.
