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

A little away from the city centre but really interesting and well worth a visit. There was a truly authentic feel about the building.

Went here on a whim and was so thrilled with what we found. So much care & attention to detail taken, it was actually brilliant to walk around without a phone as well. The light, colour, space & design all superb. Only criticism is the...More

Art Nouveau or Jugend Stil were the glory of Vienna and ... Brussels. Horta was one of the great architects and Brussels is awash with great Art Nouveau Buildings. The Tourist Office offers Art Nouveau walking tours. The Horta House is a museum and Horta...More

This is a wonderful house, designed by the architect for himself and his family. It is a wonderful example of art nouveau with flowing, naturalistic designs, wood and glass, light and airy - lots of stairs! We arrived a little ahead of opening on a...More

Not the best of Horta's works, but worth a stop by. I don't like the decoration style of this one though.

Things to know before you go: They have very limited hours, so be prepared to get there at the opening. BE PREPARED TO QUEUE (line up, for those from America). The museum is not a museum in the traditional sense- it's the guy's house, so...More

This is a must see. You couldn't live like this but as an aspiration and an illustration of how life could be lived back then, well, we can all dream!

This is one of the most interesting small museums that showcase the work of Horta, a Belgian Gaudi of sorts. Spend a lovely hour touring the multi-storey museum house and exploring its fine details.

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

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
