Overview
More
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 most beautiful art nouveau building that I have been in. The house is beautiful and walking around it is amazing. You are not allowed to take photos and I think that is a good thing as it would make it more difficult to walk...More

An absolute must for architects, artists, designers of all kinds and art lovers of the art nouveux period. Not so interesting for the layman, perhaps. The museum staff are a little too full of themselves, rather, but you can live with that if you love...More

Um excelente exemplo do movimento [ não é possível fotografar! ;( ]. Não aguarde por uma casa com uma decoração luxuriante de época. Aliás, sem a decoração luxuriante, consegue-se vislumbrar melhor a beleza do todo e dos seus detalhes, ao nível da arquitetura e design,...More

This breathtakingly beautiful house wowed at every turn and step. The colours, light and amazing Horta design details were a complete delight. We had a little trouble finding it after alighting the Hoho bus but arrived just before opening to a queue of 4 and...More

You have to make a special effort to head out to the Musee Horta, and if you're a big art nouveau fan it's worth it. Biggest disappointment was the price (when compared to other museums we'd been to for the same price) - especially when...More

For me this was less about the adulation of the architect Horta and more about absorbing how he was able to transform a place into somewhere for living and working using his principles. The top floor of his house is particularly special but whether you...More

A marvelous example of art nouveau and innovative, for the time, use of metal support structure to create a light and airy interior for this historic family home. The layout and use of multiple layers to create an open plan are still fresh and exciting....More

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, so make sure you take a map! The house lived up...More

Best to be prompt when they open, there will be a line to get in. You get to walk through the house of this famous architect/artist. The house is amazing with many different levels and stairs. Intricate doors and wood carving. The entry to the...More

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
