Clearly this is a place which will appeal most to people with an interest in Art Nouveau buildings and artefacts. It is one of the main reasons that we wanted to visit Brussels - this and the surrounding area. We were thrilled with the place - its exterior and interior. It does not have a museum feel - rather most... More

Horta was definitely one of the most significant architects of the Art Nouveau movement, and this house is an absolute gem. Its spectacular art & craft define elegance. There are so few buildings of this quality from the Art Nouveau era, don't miss it.

Gorgeous building, however overall the experience was disappointing Mostly due to the fact that there was little information given in English, so we were left to wander and admire without any information on what we were seeing. Definitely worth it for any Art Nouveau fans, but I was expecting more

When in Brussels you can't ignore Victor Horta. Visit his private home and studio on the Rue Americaine. It is a bit off the beaten track, but worth the visit. The house is an art nouveau gem. The central stairwell is breathtakingly beautiful. Several rooms have been restored over the years and are now on display for the public. The... More

The building is interesting and its modest cellar exhibition added a little value to the visit. The only weird thing is having to hand over your possessions for safe keeping in the entrance foyer, then climbing one level up to pay your entrance ticket (hoping one of you still has the cash at hand). I suppose this is to discourage... More

This is a must for anyone interested in Art Nouveau! It is so beautiful it takes your breath away. There is work going on to extend the access to include Horta's workshop and I can't wait to see it as more rooms will be on show.

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.

Don't miss this beautiful house designed by Horta for his own use and now a museum The inside of the house is exceptionable Be aware that there are lots of steps and they only allow 45 People to enter at a time
