  • Do not go to Brussels without visiting the Horta House, which is a gem of Art Nouveau, everything is wonderful and you climb the stairs admiring the stained glass windows and art nouveau furniture patterns. This is why it is not enough to admire it from the outside!

  • We had the chance to queue. The entrance is very filtered: we leave everything in a record including the such to avoid, among other things, pictures (we buy those in the shop, thus helping future restorations). There are a lot of people, spaces are relatively cramped. Shocks on the furniture are avoided. The staff is perfectly courteous with people educated and respectful. This restored house and found that over the years some of his furniture; is just extraordinary beauty. Originally; the workshop and the private parts were separated. You try to imagine the daily life of Horta, you travel in time. The scenery is so refined: wood, marble, ceramic, metal together so elegantly in the theme of art nouveau. In short, a splendor not to miss as it is accessible easily unlike other houses of this style

  • As big art nouveau fans, we were well-prepared for our experience at the Horta Museum, and thankfully weren't disappointed. We took the metro to 'Horta' and then walked to Rue Americaine - no signage,...  more »

  • I've visited the Horta museum twice this year, once on my own and again with friends who were visiting Brussels and simply loved the museum. Yes, photos are not allowed inside but that's pretty much the only (minor) downside. Every floor and room of Horta's home is simply beguiling. Everything is extremely well preserved and the museum is a must see, regardless of whether you're an Art Nouveau fan or not!
  • Very beautiful house, unique architecture. The house was the home and workshop of Horta himself. I recommend reading a bit about Horta beforehand to enjoy the visit and immerse yourself in his universe. It is not in the centre of Brussels but worth the visit! There are also a few cafes around.
  • I was a bit disappointed y this place. It opens in the afternoon, check website for details. There is a limit of 45 people inside at any one time. They could do with better signage inside and make the brochure reflect the path through the building. But the building is very interesting, reflecting the use of iron and natural light, with lots of detailing in the fixtures and fittings. Horta was similar to Gaudi in designing both structure and details of buildings.
  • Exceptional architecture and interior of the 20th century by Horta. Is a must for people loving Art Deco.
  • Excellent examples of gorgeous art nouveau architecture and decor. Very nice museum.
