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.

Enjoyed this art nouveau experience although it was a bit tricky to find. Queue looked v long but moved fairly quickly. I would have liked a bit more info included in entrance fee rather than just the v brief notes left on the tables in each room. You could buy a book but that is a pricey option.

Try to go when it isn't busy. It was full when I went and I really couldn't appreciate the house. A shame that it did not feel like a house that had ever been lived in, probably because of how it has been presented.

Small house museum of Baron Horta of art nouveau fame. The house is very interesting but there are so few notes about what you are looking at that I was left with many questions. Even so glad I went to see it, my husband was not so sure it was worth the effort.

Horta Museum is a three story house designed by Victor Horta. It is in the art noveau style. Architectural details inside and out are beautiful. It is furnished and it has some great pieces. You can see many other art noveau houses in the neighborhood but this is the only one you can visit.

Victor Horta's house and studio is a must-see if you are at all interested in the Art Nouveau style of architecture and decoration. A tram trip from the centre, it is open from 2pm most afternoons. No photography, though - unfortunately, but there is a well-stocked gift shop with lots of books and postcards to purchase.

The Horta house is a wonderful place to visit if you are interested in Art Nouveau design. Although it is not entirely original, it includes pieces from Horta's other house so all of the furnishings and fittings are from the same Art Nouveau period. Visitors are not allowed to take photos so you have to buy the book for 12... More

This is a fantastically preserved example of its architecture and decoration style. There isn't much in terms of English explanations of the rooms, but it's very pretty and worth a quick visit.

Simply the best architecture in Brussels! There are a few places in Brussels that make it unique but this place is inspirational in defining modern architecture.

Horta houses, sprinkled around Brussels, are all delightful examples of Art Nouveau principles of architecture. The museum is one of the few of those buildings where you can tour the interior in addition to admiring the exterior. Open only 3 hours a day in the afternoon (unless a group arrangement is made otherwise)

What a lovely and intimate museum in he heart of Brussels. It was one of the highlights of our recent trip. This Art Nouveau gem is a well preserved mansion built in the late 1800's. The interiors have been lovingly restored and it's furnished with period masterpieces. Architect Victor Horta who lived here was an architect and created the "Art... More
