The Van Buuren Museum is the ideal place for lovers and connoisseurs of Art Deco. Located in a residential area in Uccle, not only is the house a beautiful example of the Art Deco movement but it also has a lovely garden one can visit, leisurely stroll in it, and literally stop and smell the roses at the right time...

Very quite and peaceful place. Beautiful gardens with maze made from nicely cut bushes. They are not tall enough for adults, but will be definitely great fun for kids. The love garden with heart shaped bushes is very cute. Romantic destination for couples. Museum-house is nothing special. Was boring for us, we just walked through and went straight to the... More

Superbly maintained both inside and out, in the manner in which it was originally designed. I hope I am correct in saying it is one of the best preserved Art Deco houses in Europe. Check opening times.

Not very big but a must for art deco fans. Great gardens and lower floor! Quirky and interesting - peaceful and worth the journey!

The Van Buuren house is my absolute top place to visit in Brussels. Decorated with impeccable taste, it is preserved just as when Alice Van Buuren left it. The furniture, colours and art all create a wonderful and gentle atmosphere. It is a true Art Deco gem. Both times I have visited there have been very few other visitors, so... More

We spend a lovely day at this perfectly preserved Art Deco jewel. What an amazing museum and tribute to one family's amazing story. We took a taxi for a quick trip from central Brussels, and boy did it not disappoint. If you are a fan of Art Deco or a history buff, you need to see this house. Not only... More

If you like Art Deco architecture and design this is a must. The garden was not at its best as we visited so early in the year however you see the beauty of the layout and the maze is fun. The house is delightful; a real feast for the eyes. Not all the rooms are open but what you can... More

Not easy to visit as it is open in an erratic way (only in afternoon, but it is better to call them before) , even many brussels expat doesn't know it but it is really worth to visit it particularly if the sun shine. Not easy to locate as it isn't in the city center, the best is to take... More
