This is not a museum in the traditional sense: the museum itself is actually the house that Victor Horta built for himself in the late 1890s, which truly exemplifies the Art Nouveau style that made Horta into one of the most acclaimed architects in Belgium.

We were spellbound by this little museum. The house is so different to the architecture and design that I'm used to that it really magnified the feeling of stepping into somebody else's world. Not all of the rooms are particularly notable, but most have at least something inside to interest. We left brimming with enthusiasm for the place (and wishing... More

Exceptional Art Nouveau architecture. Get there early as queue builds up quickly. Student discount very good.

This is a shrine for many I think, but I thought it an interesting house full of Horta designs and furniture...but the familiarity of his art nouveau style diminishes the impact this house might have otherwise. Don't miss the basement exhibition...which would be easy to do. 45 people at a time results in short queues at times.tram 92 from nearby... More

This is a must-see for architecture fans. Horta was one of the great architects in the Art Nouveau style and this is his own home. He did not spare any effort to make his house exquisite and it has been beautifully restored. You get to see almost everything and it is well furnished to give you the sense of how... More

Allows only 45 people at once, and open time is very short, but it worth the visit. Full of stairs.Furnitures from the time the artist lived here with his family.

Behind the façade which is being painstakingly cleaned up (for ages now, it seems), this private home of Victor Horta will amaze you with its tiny details, all of which the famous Art Nouveau architect designed himself at the turn of the last century for his personal home. Each doorknob and hinge is crafted to match the overall style, and... More

The house offers good insight into the Art Nouveau movement. However, I had to take points off for value for money and the snooty behaviour of the man who met us at the door.

Before even seeing this house cum atelier turned museum, we came across 2 slight challenges you'd better watch out for. 1. The opening times: the will only let you in after 14:00, small groups of max 15 people at a time. 2. Finding your way there. Located in the Ixelles quarter, the metro took us close, but then locating the... More

If you love Art Deco/Jugendstil, this is a must-see! Wonderful old house, now in the process of being extended into the next building. Beautifully renovated. It's only open in the afternoon.
