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.

The Horta Museum is a small museum often overlooked by visitors to Brussels but really shouldn't be missed, particularly if you're a fan of the Art Nouveau style. The museum was actually architect Victor Horta's home. Horta was one of the main contributors to the...More

We made the mistake of thinking that this Museum would be in close proximity or above the Horta Metro Station, it isn't! Once found however, it is a very interesting museum and an amazing house.

If you are interested in Art Nouveau, this is the not to miss attraction in Brussels. Wonderful house, furniture, fittings, the full disaster! Check opening hours however.

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!

Dear Joanna, Hortas museum is only open from 2 to 5:30pm Tuesdays to Sundays, so you don't have much option to time your visit. We went in Feb (low season), and arrived shortly before 2pm. We didn't wait long to get in... More
