  • The visit to the villa is a must for fans of modern architecture because it is an excellent example of art deco. After ups and downs underwent a careful restoration but unfortunately it was not possible to recover everything inside. However now the Foundation organizes exhibitions of contemporary art.

  • The outside of this impressive art deco villa gives all good again where this stands for. The value of the architecture is unmistakable. The metal door and the canopy for example. The villa is also in very good condition. Especially in the monumental entrance hall inside worth seeing. This see you already have bought a ticket for you. Tickets are quite expensive, since it is a private foundation that runs the museum, and there is also art on display. At our visit: mainly photos and modern art; No topexhibition though. In the rooms you notice just a little architecturaals and thus 3 points-appreciation. As the exhibition itself you don't like, you're on a small hours back outside. The art speaks to you, then you can fill 2 hours there. Also go around the House for the garden and especially the pool. The garden, by the way, standing at the back to the Bois de la Cambre. In terms of architecture from that time I find villa Sonneveld in Rotterdam a better option than this. Parking is not there but along the street is perhaps even a town of smoking. There are currently also road building in the neighborhood.

  • Villa art deco stunning well that renovated into a Museum, which does more to see the initial architecture of the House. Interesting contemporary art exhibition and bousculante. Very nice neighborhood of Brussels. Beautiful excursion in the early century Brussels.

  • Stunning art deco building with art scattered throughout and a gallery in the basement. The entry ticket basically allows you to just wander round and explore for yourself, with some notes from the guide leaflet. Definitely worth the trip for fans of art deco.
  • Beautiful building and fascinating exhibition. Must see
  • Impressive art nouveau villa. It is absolutely necessary to visit it and especially the garden.
  • This place combines the old with new so well, very interesting experience!
  • Fantastic building with interesting exhibits. Unlike any museum I've been to before, would thoroughly recommend a visit

Where to stay in Brussels

It's easy to find accommodations in Brussels for nearly any budget. Tourists generally gravitate to the area surrounding Grand-Place, the city's main square. Also consider staying near Stephanie Square Centre and Boulevard de Waterloo, which are both centrally located. As Europe's unofficial capital, the city boasts a wealth of high-end hotels for visiting diplomats, concentrated along glitzy Avenue Louise. Those looking for a low-budget option will find a host of hostels scattered around the Grand-Place and within walking distance to the city's main attractions.
