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...more

This house was everything I dreamed it would be. Horta was a genius and his designs are beautiful - furniture, light fixtures, stair rails. Definite bucket list item.

The building itself is obviously beautifully maintained and preserved, and is certainly stylistically different from most other house museums that are accessible in Europe. If you like Horta and Art Nouveau you'll definitely want to visit. That said, for someone with very limited knowledge of...More

If you don't have time to do a walking tour of all the art nouveau sites in Brussels, it's worth making the trip out to St. Gilles to see Horta's house/studio where you can get a sense of his style and enormous talent. We expected...More

We made a trip in October with the kids to see this place as I love the Art Nouveau movement. Got there just after opening time at 2pm (check times before you go!) there was a small queue, but nothing outrageous. Quite reasonable entry prices...More

Be prepared to queue, but it's worth the wait. We arrived at 3pm and after 40 minutes entered the house. You'll need 2 Euros (which is refunded) to use a locker to store your bags and cameras (including phones). This is great because all visitors...More

Horta’s home is a wonder. A Luxurious and glamorous showcase of the art nouveau style. Numbers are sensibly restricted so you are able to have a close look at everything and take in the attention to detail that this building demands. Disappointed that the shop...More

Beware..only open from 2-5pm. Liked the fact it was Horta’s own home/workshop . The detail and design features are superb. Loved the nod to William Morris. Best way to get there is on 92 or 97 tram. Only gripe is that the museum could make...More

Whenever I visit Europe I am always curious about what is inside the houses; how are they different from where I live in Canada, what is behind those walls, what about the kitchen, the furniture, etc. Well, this provided one perspective, albeit not a common...More

Sorry for the delay, but hopefully this helps others. Definitely early in the morning, and you're right the queue can become long. Also, if you really like architecture, an hour is short to spend in the home. But you can... More
