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

Whenever I visit Europe I am always curious about what is inside the houses; how are they different from where I live in Canada, what is behind those walls, what about the kitchen, the furniture, etc. Well, this provided one perspective, albeit not a common...More

My wife and I are great fans of both Art Nouveau and Art Deco and this museum was a "must see" during our trip to Brussels. We were not disappointed, as the house and fittings are spectacular. The only disappointment, as photography is forbidden, was...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
