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

This museum is a real architectural gem. Two small houses which are almost a labyrinth. All details are so fine. Perfect interiors, very unique place of art deco/art nouveau architecture. Photos and bags are not allowed. Limited amount of visitors at the same time.
A truly stunning house filled with examples of beautiful art nouveau architecture. You can’t take any bags, phones, cameras etc. Into the tour (lots of secure lockers available) but it actually meant people were much more considerate moving around and you really stopped and looked...More
An absolute must for art lovers of the art nouveau period. Really excellent house museum which allows you to experience the work of Horta. Some areas even had examples of other works and designs. No access to garden and NO photos!!!
Words can’t describe how beautiful this house is! A perfect art nouveau building in every single detail. The only disappointment is “no photos” anywhere, we actually had to leave our handbags outside in a locker.. such a shame!! It’s 2018, people leave on pictures!! Anyway,...More
A really beautiful building. You can no longer take photos (I get the impression that when photography was permitted it led to fisticuffs and people tripping up, falling down and generally rolling around in an injurious manner). So you’ll need to be satisfied to take...More
How can you "improve" Victor Horta, who almost invented Art Nouveau? By purchasing the house next door and transferring all the administrative spaces there, opening up new (old) spaces in his original house. It had been years since we first visited this gem, and our...More
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
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
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).
