Owner description: 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.

An art nouveau gem off the beaten track and well worth a visit, but could be improved by having more information available during the visit.

I went with my wife and my six years old son to the museum. It is a very nice building, it was the house of Horta. There is an entrance fee of 5 euro and you have to leave all your bags at the front desk.
From outside it wasn't great, but indoors it was splendid. Great living room, the stairs were a piece of art, sunlight everywhere from the windows. Unfortunately it is hard to describe it as it was forbidden to take photos. Too bad because it is something that everybody must see. The best of was the toilet that the architect has near his bed. It was in a cupboard and you have to open it in order to pee!!!

This is a must for anyone interested in the Art Nouveau/ Art Deco, Design, Architecture, or generally things of beauty. It doesn't take long to visit, and isn't very far from the centre, (we got a taxi there, which was quite expensive, and walked back into the centre.) The house is quite breathtaking, and as the number of visitors is limited, there is enough room to take in the features of both the house, the fittings and the furniture. Dont miss it.

Well worth the 15 minute tram ride from the city centre. An immaculate example of Art Nouveau (NOT Art Deco - there's a huge and significant difference). It's not a huge house and does not take long to see, but worth seeing if you are appreciate architectural history. No photos allowed (but I snuck a few with my iPhone). I heard there were line-ups to get in - we went on a Saturday and walked right in.

We just loved this museum!

If you're into architecture and/or art deco you should definitly go!
It's an experience well worth the entry fee.
The book shop is nice, but could have had even better selection of litterature, but that may be due to lack of space.

Be aware that there is no access for disabled, natural in such an old house.
