Very beautiful 'Gesamtkunstwerk' in Art Deco-style with Flemish and Italian masters. Excellent destination when you are not in the mood for large musea and still want a real inspiring cultural experience.

Early C20 house furnished in art deco style and with a large garden which is a superb suburban oasis and which passes the key tests: I would love to live in it, and I went away inspired to make some changes to my own house and garden based on what I had seen.

What a find! Just get a tram to Churchill which is at the end of one of the lines. A five minute walk from there. Open on a Sunday. If you like Art Deco, this is the place. You have most of the house to wander around in your own time. Although I would have loved to have seen every... More

If you are an Art Deco fan, welcome home! It's absolutely magnificent. You are traveling in time when Queen Elisabeth of Belgium would come to see her friends the Van Bururen and listen to the laureates of the international music contest that she created. Every single detail is orgasmic.

This is a very cool house and the gardens are very well-maintained, but neither are that big and it's slightly expensive. If you can go to the Museum of Fine Arts for € 8, I don't think this place should be € 10 (in 2014). But, the house is very deco and the gardens have a maze. If you arrive... More

The house is by no means a mansion, but it is a Art Deco gem in an upscale neighborhood which we enjoyed touring. The gardens are lovely as well. Very peaceful. Take the 3 line to Churchill and look for the sign/banners pointing down the side street. The ride takes about 15 minutes from the city center.

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
