4/5 based on 1,100+ reviews on the web
Tour a home that blends elegance and modern thinking at Horta Museum (Musee Horta), the former home and studio of Victor Horta, a famed Art Nouveau architect. The museum displays his creations, including furniture, utensils, and architectural plans, as well as documents related to the architect's life and work, giving you a sense of the human behind the designs. The museum's location in the center of town makes it accessible from multiple stops on public transportation or by foot. Book a guided tour by phone or email at least one week in advance. Private tours after closing can be arranged for an extra fee. For a self-guided tour, purchase your tickets at the reception desk when you arrive. Horta Museum (Musee Horta) is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Brussels Edition.

  • The Horta House is definitely a place to visit if one is fascinated by the Art Nouveau. The building and the furniture are in excellent condition. The presentation of the place is worth to the city center. This is a nice visit for lovers of the unusual. On the other hand, she does not allow access to disabled people and it's hard to stroll through the Museum with young children, because of many markets. Unfortunately, I noted several points to improve: - the Museum is open for 3 and a half hours each afternoon, a little thin as schedule - the entrance fee is €10 per adult, is expensive even for a Museum - no issue, no audio, no explanation are provided free of charge - you pay for any additional information, and not a little, so should preferably already be known a little Art Nouveau or the life of Horta - can not photograph not even without flash, which is particularly disappointing for the splendour of the House and the price of admission (at first I understand wrong and I asked several times if the photos without flash were allowed... but no!) - the staff could be more polite - the last admission is at 5:15 and closed at 5.30 p.m., I arrived at 4:50 pm and left at 17:25 and the staff ceased to indicate the time by tapping the watch on the wrist 'quick, quick, we'll close' - thank you, I heard you the first time! In short, I recommend this tour to people enjoying the artistic style of the Belle Epoque and who do not feel bothered by the average customer service.

  • The Museum was formerly the home of Horta. It's simply worth a visit in its size and facilities. The ticket gives you the exact addresses of homes that are still from the outside, which he designed on the back. It is worth to join this tour after the museum visit. Duration approximately 1 hour.

  • My friend if really into Art Noveau. So Brussels was the destionation of choice. The Horta-Museaum is in a side street and you really have to look for it. From th outside the house looks quite plain. ...  read more »
  • 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.
  • Hidden gem in Brussels. This beautiful Art Nouveau house/museum is a must-see attraction, especially if you are an Architect or Interior/Product Designer. A bit far away city centre but easy enough to get by metro + short walk.
  • Quite a wait before getting inside. Very beautiful house but sadly there was a lady who really didn't like us taking photos. Should be visited when in Brussels.
  • Absolutely worth it, not only for architecture lovers. 8€ investment for an art nouveau/Jugendstil master piece.
  • Wonderful. Did you see her starring role in "The Danish Girl"?
