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.

This house, which belonged to Mr Horta, may not be his most impressive masterpiece, bu it's full of beatufilul art.-deco artefacts and shows beautiful details of the design style of its owner. Moeover, it gives you an insight in the life of people in the beginning of XX century.

Hard to find, away from the mainstream areas of Brussels, but the home was out of the ordinary! My wife and I spent an afternoon enjoying this wonderful museum. The Horta Museum is located in the private house and studio of Victor Horta (1861-1947). Built between 1898 and 1901, the two buildings are typical of Art Nouveau.. The interior decoration... More

We had been looking forward to visiting Horta House and the building is beautiful, however the only information you get when wondering around is about the furniture in this room or that. There is no information about the actual property, how it was built, details of the style/influences or the history of Horta and his works (apart from a tiny... More

A fascinating visit to the house of Art Nouveau architect Victor Horta. Allow an hour for your visit - and be prepared to wait outside as numbers inside are limited. Travel light as bags etc. can not be taken around the house - but free storage is available. It was a great shame that so little information was available about... More

This is a lovely example of an Art Nouveau house and a very popular place to visit. This did make it rather cramped, especially passing people on the staircase, which was a pity, but understandable as many visitors wanted to view it. The garden looked fascinating from the windows, too.

this museum is more an original small house you can visit than a place with exhibitions and descriptive signs. Worth a visit for every architecture lover - but be warned, the insides are narrow and easily overburdened by people...there may be a queue.

This Museum is shows the office and house of a well-known Belgian Architect: Victor Horta. The house as well as the office are thought and created according to the Art Nouveau rules, with lots of rounded forms, whereas the mirrors, colours and other details remain at the discretion and style of Victor Horta. I found this place in its complete... More

Horta Museum was closed for renovation when I was Brussels many years ago. Finally I'd the chance to visit it and it's definitely worth the wait. It you visit only 1 art nouveau mansion in Brussels, make Horta Museum your choice. The house had been restored magnificently. Horta's attention to details was so astonishing that everything was designed in a... More

Beautiful house with breathtaking design, it feels like your stepping back in time - you'll love this even if you're not a fan of Art Nouveau. There are many lovely small touches and despite the small size there is so much detail you could spend hours here. The museum has strange hours and so it's worth checking the website before... More
