We found this home of the founder of Art Nouveau in the St. Giiles area with help from locals as we walked from the Horta Metro stop. We are from Oak Park, IL and were reminded of Frank Lloyd Wright Home and Studio here. Two of the staff were familiar with it and one had been here to tour it.... More

Yes the place is beautiful. But before you waste your time in Brussels on standing in the outdoor queue and a fairly high entrance fee for this small place - rather go somewhere else.

A beautiful building and it gives you an opportunity to see inside a home which is a treat. I loved the beauty of Horta's designs and was wonderfully surprised to see some of his work on display also in the Musee D'Orsay in Paris. A truly remarkable designer!!

isn't this house simply beautiful? all the little details of Art Decò inspired by flowers and nature....make this house ( museum) a really incredible place. You suddenly step into 1930 and while walking the rooms of Horta's house you imagine how life must have been in this house. All the doors and stairs were thought in such a way that... More

This was the home of the architect whose is described as having initiated the Art Nouveau style. It contains original lighting and furniture, and some special art exhibits in the basement, and is well worth the visit.

if you like art deco then you will love this house. Victor Horta designed it for himself and I think lived there. It took a bit of doing to find it; I should have asked for directions at my hotel instead of just winging it, but I found it and it was wonderful.

The museum was actually Victor Horta's house and studio. It was designed by the architect and serves as a fine example of his work. It is absolutely beautiful and is an excellent example of good taste. I really enjoyed the museum and it was one of the main reasons why I visited Brussels. However, I was disappointed that the museum... More

Beauty in every detail on every floor, but I didn't feel like I learned much about the architect himself. Well worth the wait if you can visit when lines are short. They limit the number of entrants inside at one time, so you're not crammed in, shuffling from one site to the next. You do get to wander at your... More
