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
I've been living in Brussels for a few months now and I'm slowly making my way around the museums. The Horta Museum has been the best I've visited yet. The dining room and music room were just stunning and the whole house has been kept...More
Go! With your kids or yourself. Totally interesting with lots of beautiful period details. It was worth the trek. It was also surprisingly a stop on the Hop On Hop Off bus so it was convenient to get there whereas had I taken public transportation...More
Service a little poor and rude, if you are in the area nice to see, near place royal, and having coffee on the terrace is good when the weather is nice, but dont go for lunch or diner, service is not good, they are rude
The Horta Museum is a small museum often overlooked by visitors to Brussels but really shouldn't be missed, particularly if you're a fan of the Art Nouveau style.
The museum was actually architect Victor Horta's home. Horta was one of the main contributors to the...More
This museum is a real architectural gem. Two small houses which are almost a labyrinth. All details are so fine. Perfect interiors, very unique place of art deco/art nouveau architecture. Photos and bags are not allowed. Limited amount of visitors at the same time.
A truly stunning house filled with examples of beautiful art nouveau architecture. You can’t take any bags, phones, cameras etc. Into the tour (lots of secure lockers available) but it actually meant people were much more considerate moving around and you really stopped and looked...More
An absolute must for art lovers of the art nouveau period. Really excellent house museum which allows you to experience the work of Horta. Some areas even had examples of other works and designs. No access to garden and NO photos!!!
Words can’t describe how beautiful this house is! A perfect art nouveau building in every single detail. The only disappointment is “no photos” anywhere, we actually had to leave our handbags outside in a locker.. such a shame!! It’s 2018, people leave on pictures!! Anyway,...More

After saying that, if I were you, I would not go. Since you are only in Brussels for a few hours not a few days, it is best to stay in town centre. Hortas musuem is outside of the town centre, and you need to take a bus back and forth which would eat up your time. There are plenty of Art Nouveau buildings to see in Towncentre, including Music Instruments Musuem which has a restaurant on top. This is also next to the Musée Fin-de-Siècle Museum -dedicating to Art Nouveau. Both would be a lot more convenient for your visit.
Honestly, Brussels is a city best enjoyed strolling around leisurely, soaking up the atmosphere, tasting their comfort food, window shopping through endless alleys of tempting chocolate and pastry shops and breweries. It is a city to experience its relaxed charm and not a city for "must see" tourist attractions hopping.
As much as I have enjoyed Horta Museum, we went only because we were in Brussels for 4 days.
