Overview

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.

So interesting to visit the home of this skilled architect. Everything so wonderfully well kept/restored - and the way Horta worked with light and transferred his knowledge and ideas into practice in his own home is amazing. A must see!

Because the purpose of my trip to Brussels was to view art nouveau architecture and interiors, this museum was high on my list. And the museum was fabulous. One could see the art nouveau planning in every detail. Every room was beautifully restored and furnished....More

It’s very easy to make a review of Victor Horta museum – because there aren’t any photos! The family of this famous Belgian architect - and the honorable baron since 1932 - cherish their intellectual property rights, so you cannot take photos in the museum...More

Well laid-out, useful explanations, good guide, worth a visit. Try to combine it with several other Art Nouveau once-a-year visits (usually on a spring weekend) to other worthy Art Nouveau private houses and buildings with the BANAD Pass (2 days, 6 to 8 visits) -...More

If you have any interest in architecture, this is a must. It is a simple, small museum, but the interiors are amazing. The epitome of art nouveux! No cameras or phones allowed. Lockers are provided for your bags and belongings.

This museum opens at 14:00 - we arrived about 13:50 and there was a queue outside. There are some restrictions to be aware of - you can't take bags in or cameras or smart phones. Lockers are provided (€1 refundable) but this means that they...More

The most beautiful art nouveau building that I have been in. The house is beautiful and walking around it is amazing. You are not allowed to take photos and I think that is a good thing as it would make it more difficult to walk...More

An absolute must for architects, artists, designers of all kinds and art lovers of the art nouveux period. Not so interesting for the layman, perhaps. The museum staff are a little too full of themselves, rather, but you can live with that if you love...More

Um excelente exemplo do movimento [ não é possível fotografar! ;( ]. Não aguarde por uma casa com uma decoração luxuriante de época. Aliás, sem a decoração luxuriante, consegue-se vislumbrar melhor a beleza do todo e dos seus detalhes, ao nível da arquitetura e design,...More
