A great museum for art deco lovers - the house and its contents are in the art deco style exactly as the owners lived in it. The gardens are lovely, and there is even a maze to stroll through which is always a hit with little ones. Recently there has been some renovation work in the garden but it has... More

If you like Art Deco then you will not regret your trip here. When we visited on a Saturday in February we had the place almost to ourselves. The gardens are being refurbished but even in February there is something for the garden lover to admire. Despite the fact that it is off the usual tourist map it is very... More

a great pleasure to discover this house and its garden from the middle of Twentieth Century, with a fabulous series of paintings from dark-age and contemporary period. The garden presents artists as guests. thanks to "Chez Dominique" to have advised me to visit this fabulous place -take the tram 92 and 5 minutes walk-

We visited in Jnauary so the garden was not at its best but still very enjoyable. The house is a must see if you like art deco. You really do get the feelling of a place that was lived in and it really is an outstanding example of art deco interior design. Very friendly reception and a very helful guide... More

The museum is well known for its garden. There you will have a pause in this charming and authentic neighbourhood of uptown Brussels. And you will enjoy the quietness and the beauty of this art deco house and garden.

It is not a well-known museum and a bit outside the city centre. But you can visit it easily with public transport. Tram 3 from the city centre, stop Churchill, is about a 100 meters from the museum. And if you have time, you can have a walk in the surrounding streets and admire the beautiful mansions and houses in... More

We're both into gardening so were pleased to have this garden recommended to us. Didn't see the museum, just the garden on the grounds but it was worth the time, even in the "off season" for gardening. Topiary, cool garden sculptures, nice plantings. Well worth a visit!

This is a place to visit every now and then, for the sense of class and elegance lives in the house and it's transferred to every guest. The interiors are perfect, grand image of a wealthy society noble in spirit and devoted to art and beauty. You find originals from Bruegel, Spiliart and made to measure furniture and fittings in...

The house itself and gardens bear witness to the good taste and willingness to innovate of its original owners. Sad that some of the best artwork was stolen in the summer of 2013 and has not yet been recovered. The temporary exhibition on show in summer 2013 was idiosyncratic and ill adapted to the site.
