  • The facade of the Horta Museum is currently in scaffolding, which is a pity, of course. I was very impressed with the Interior of the House and I am convinced that everyone who is interested in architecture and more specifically art nouveau will have a nice time here. I found it very regrettable that hardly any information was available. I learned nothing at about the life of Victor Horta, about his work, his sources of inspiration, etc. in this area, I am disappointed. For a mature person you pay € 10 and outskirts certainly outside. I think it is a missed opportunity, the House is a beautiful location, but still it is museum not what I expected it to be.

  • The Horta House is somewhat remote from the Centre of Brussels on the border of St. Gilles and Ixelles. Horta is a known art-nouveau architect in Belgium with some reputation abroad. But it's no Gaudi nor a Hundertwasser. You visit a Horta House and one calls it "the Horta Museum". Entrance 10 euros and on a thick half an hour you have seen it. The House and the decor of Horta with some summary comments. It smells like floor Polish and it breathes the art-nouveau atmosphere which in itself meritorious. What I'm missing is passion for the architect and his work. No exhibition on its achievements, meaning and place in history. Seats where the dust from damaged. The garden was sloppy. Horta, because his house is beautiful, deserves better and more. Here I had the feeling that I had paid a lot of money for something so much more beautiful could have been.

  • A well hidden treasure as undetectable from the view of the House from the street. This House is huge, arranged by confusing, small garden view is beautiful. A must see.

  • Very nice little museum. 10 euro entrance and the visit dont last more than one hour. Very specifically detailed and organised
  • This splendid Victor Horta art nouveau house and workplace is a pearl on the Brussels crown
  • To pay 10 euros per person without being allowed to take pictures of a house feels a bit like theft. The house is beautiful and nice to visit, but 5 euros would have been a more appropriate price for what you get.
  • Nice place to visit. Small, but unique. Recommend especially who interested in art and architecture. Confirm, taking pictures is not allowed (dont understand, why).
  • It's a nice house. Nice architecture but not worth the money. It's 10 euro and it takes less than 15 minutes to walk through.
