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 Belgium.

I loved this Art Nouveau house converted into a museum with the old installation (old radiators, bathroom, furniture etc).

Nice museum, a good way to have a better idea about the style and also a nice end of the tour of all the house made by Horta that are all around that area in St Gilles- Ixelles. Unfortunately the museum has some strange open hours and I really suggest you to give a call to be sure is open... More

This is a mildly interesting house - the birthplace of Art Nouveau. The visit was marred however by the officious unfriendly staff at the door. Totally off putting. No sense of grace and we are glad you have come to see us - rather a supercilious attitude that only they (notably a collection of men) had any taste or any... More

My friend if really into Art Noveau. So Brussels was the destionation of choice. The Horta-Museaum is in a side street and you really have to look for it. From th outside the house looks quite plain. To get inside one has to buy a rather expensive ticket. I think it is rather expensive, because after all, all you get... More

I know nothing about Horta or architecture this visit was to keep the girlfriend happy and it certainly achieved that. That said, I did find it very interesting and well worth visiting.

Until recently I had never heard of Victor Horta, that's until a dear friend of mine took me to the Horta Museum in Brussels. I don't know much about architecture, how to define certain periods, the origins of Gothic, Art Deco etc, I just know what I like and find aesthetically pleasing. I had an instant respect and love for... More

It has been a few years since I last went to the Horta House museum. I took a group of friends visiting Brussels to it in its newly renovated form - with a gift shop, bag deposit, maquettes of the house and other Art Nouveau buildings etc. and other aspects to cope with the increasing flow of tourists. The main... More

A (long) walking distance from Grand Place. Easy to find. The house is Art Nouveau in every detail. Also called Jugend style. Details is so genuine and style is so alive. I have read about the place several times in books and Internet. The place could need a new wardrobe man or send him on a charm course. Poor man... More

One of the must-sees in Brussels, a jewel of the Art Nouveau. Not situated in the heart of Brussels, it is worth it! For sure!

A definite must see if you are interested in Art Deco or Art Nouveau. This worth a little trip out of the centre and you can either get a tram (92 we took in the way back) or the metro (Horta station from Bourse on the way out. Individuals can only go on from 1400 daily and it is closed... More
