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.

It's not huge as it is just a house but it gives you a global approach to Art Nouveau as every single element of the house is thought through the Art Nouveau concept, from the door know, to the switches or furniture, windows... It worth the visit for Architecture amateurs.

We waited in line to visit the Horta Museum on a rainy Sunday afternoon. Thankfully we stood outside only about 30 minutes before we were waved through. It's a small jewel of a home---definitely worth the wait and 8 euro ticket price for art nouveau fans. Here's the annoying thing: They make you check bags (even purses!), jackets & cameras.... More

One of the greatest Art Nouveau masters of the world, whose personal home is now this museum. The hours are quite limited, and you should expect a line...though the wait was not too long for us. His impact on this neighborhood goes well beyond his home, and there are several walking tours available online, taking in the neighborhood before visiting... More

Well maintained, beautifully restored former residence of the architect Victor Horta. Worth visiting but is only open from 2pm and costs €8 for entrance. Nice gift shop on the ground floor.

This is an architectural masterpiece, with furnishings designed especially for the home. All is very well preserved and captures a moment in time when life seemed so much more peaceful and elegant.

The museum only opens in the afternoon to the public and we arrived about 2.40pm to find a queue to get in! Sensibly they only allow ~45 people in at a time so it is not too crowded as you walk round and admire the amazing architecture, interior design, furniture and room decoration. We only had to wait about 15... More

Loved the inside of this building, worth travelling over to see the Art Nouveau designs and interior did not disappoint. Be aware it does not open until 2pm and only admits 48 people at a time. The cost is minimal and well worth the 4 euros we paid (as seniors)

Either as a visitor to Brussels or a resident, this is a must. The building shows the splendour of it's architect, V. Horta. It has been maintained beautifully and is both of academic interest and simply a delightful and inspiring space to be in. Residents used to be allowed free entry, which made bringing any visiting friends an absolute on... More
