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.

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

The house is very nice, well preserved (beside the garden which is a mess), handles, detailes and especially lamps are wonderful, but asking 10 euros to visit it is sincerely too much. It is also sincerely ridicolous in 2016 to forbid pictures:all the Asian peers who where visiting took thousand of pics (and to journalists they ask 25 euros to... More

We did a self guided art nouveau tour of Brussels. We got a map at the tourist bureau and followed a number of the suggested routes. There are some spectacular examples of art nouveau buildings in this city. If you can you should plan to be here on the first Saturday of the month when there are tours of the... More

The house itself is very nice, but as a museum is small and it would need work from the administration to make up for it. Unfortunately nothing has been done, documentation is very poor and there is nothing to draw you into the world and mind of Horta.

Our party of six loved visiting the Horta Museum, giving as it does real insight into the development of Art Deco design in Brussels during the 1920s and 30s. Highly evocative of the period. The day we visited was very hot and the museum staff kindly gave us some water to drink which was most welcome. Be prepared to leave... More

This place is not easy to find. We took the Hop on Hop off bus to the closest stop which is outside the Kerk Heilige Drievuldigheid in the Rue de Tabellion. From the bus stop travel along the Rue de Tabellion in the opposite direction to which the bus is travelling, The Rue Americane is the second road from the... More

Walk in the door, close your mouth as your jaw will drop once you see the staircase. Walk up the stairs, catch your breath as you see the dining room. At this point you are 1 min into your tour and you've not yet paid your 10€ admission. To think that 1 person designed every detail- hinges, handles, lamps, furniture,... More

Some rooms are very beautiful and the house is well taken care of. There should be some more background information about Horta and the about the house itself.
