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.

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.

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.

This house is stunning and it is a joy to visit. I think it can be enjoyed even by people who don't usually go in for house furnishings etc.

I have always wanted to see this house, it's beautiful. You can go up and see different rooms. It wasn't crowded there and we spent there short time only, it's not so big. Difficult to find, as well as many other sights in Brussels.

Off the beaten tourist trap (but you can get there using the Metro). A lovely art nouveau house that lets you feel like you were invited in by Horta

A great museum that transports you back in time. Some fantastic use of space and lighting. Definitely worth a trip from inner Brussels. A must for architecture and art neuvaux enthusiasts.

You really need to see this. It's so pretty and cleverly designed. Be warned though that photographing is not allowed.

Horta House is an Art Nouveau styled house that has been preserved as a museum. Quite interesting little place. Only open in the afternoons and you have to wait so there isn't too many people in the house at one time. You are free to walk around the whole house but not the garden. You're not allowed to take photos.... More

Like art nouveau, love this interior. Highlights for us chandeliers and staircase. Was not happy to have to leave all bags, including phones/cameras etc at reception. I am happy with no photo rules but uncomfortable with leaving kit .

This small museum is the former house and studio of the Art Nouveau architect Victor Horte and is a must see. The house, in particular, is stunning and I felt honoured to be in it and be able to see the his brilliance of his work. Converted me to Art Nouveau. I took off one point partly for the cost...
