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

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
If you don't have time to do a walking tour of all the art nouveau sites in Brussels, it's worth making the trip out to St. Gilles to see Horta's house/studio where you can get a sense of his style and enormous talent. We expected...More
We made a trip in October with the kids to see this place as I love the Art Nouveau movement. Got there just after opening time at 2pm (check times before you go!) there was a small queue, but nothing outrageous. Quite reasonable entry prices...More
Be prepared to queue, but it's worth the wait. We arrived at 3pm and after 40 minutes entered the house. You'll need 2 Euros (which is refunded) to use a locker to store your bags and cameras (including phones). This is great because all visitors...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 breeze through and feel the history and beauty of the place (check out the servants' passageways, they're quite an insight).
