This Museum has 4 museums within itself and houses over 20,000 paintings, sculptures and drawings: Old Masters, Modern Art, Fin-de-Siècle and Magritte and thus by the end of the tour, you are engulfed in the awe of the art masterpieces you have seen.

Magritte Museum: They make you begin your tour with this museum in case you have bought tickets for all, else you could choose to buy for 1 or 2 museums as well, I of course went for all. This Museum houses the largest collection of René Magritte’s works- brilliant surreal works. Unfortunately, you are not allowed to take pictures inside the museum and hence my pictures are limited to the ones taken outside.

In the other museum I got to see the works of Pieter Brueghel, who I deeply admire. His works are so detailed and engaging that you could spend hours gazing at a painting, trying to figure it out.
