The Magritte Experience - Three Adventures in One
This summer, on the beach opposite the Grand Casino of Knokke, an outdoor exhibition is being organized that will give visitors a profound insight into the life and art of Magritte. Upon entering the giant Bowler Hat, visitors will be handed a Virtual Reality headset that will take them on an unforgettable 3D-journey through the magical world of René Magritte.
Afterwards, you can read all about several works that featured in the virtual tour. You can hang out, have a beverage, in the Magritte Lounge and have your picture taken next to a giant pipe; inspired by the painting with the famous words ‘Ceci N’est Pas Une Pipe’.
For the children, there’s a treasure hunt, where they can crawl through a world of clouds and color Magritte’s most famous paintings. At the end of the exhibition, they will be awarded with a ‘Magritte Certificate’.
The Enchanted Realm
Right across the beach, Magritte’s largest painting, ‘The Enchanted Realm’, is exhibited in the Grand Casino of Knokke. It will only be exhibited this summer and presents the visitors of the Magritte Experience a unique opportunity to admire the full-size 300m2 mural during a 15-minute sound and light show.
And finally, a special Discovery tour of approximately 90 minutes has been laid out in Knokke to discover the city with the help of René Magritte. When purchasing your ticket for the Magritte Experience, you can download the app where the discovery tour begins.
