  • 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.
