Recommended by a family member we visited this absolute hidden delight on a damp February afternoon. We were not diappointed. It was so intimate a venue and so beautifully decorated that it left both of us speechless. I doubt if it is possible to find a more definitive tribute to "art nouveau" anywhere. Every single element of this house is... More

Need to travel outwith centre - but well worth the trip. Easy to get to on tram / bus. Quite breath taking - and great to see the original pieces of furniture and art insitu. Lovely garden to walk around - in my view - do not miss!

The exterior appearance wouldn't make you think so, but inside you will find an Art Deco gem. You can visit the entire ground floor and the study and studio on the upper flower. Bedrooms are not accessible. There is quite a huge garden that can be visited as well. The information provided is quite good, in general though the house... More

It's quite difficult to find the place. I took a taxi. But once you visit the place, you discover who the upper class lived in the beginning of the 20 century. great art. Absolutely a must.

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.

You have to visit this lovely house set in a ravishing garden and look at the wonderful paintings of Gustave van de Woestijne... A dream....
