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

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.
