Fee: Yes
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: 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.

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 as the museum only opens from 2.00 -5.30 the rooms do fill quickly.
Highly recommended for lovers of Art Nouveau.

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 the studio was being refurbished so there was a chunk of the tour missing.

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 read the pamphlet about him or just feel the hues and the light, enjoy.

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. Details in the woodwork and furniture are intricate and decorative. Highly recommended even though a little pricey -- the cost of admission I'm sure goes to supporting the museum and the preservation of the house.

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 to all of our expectations, and ranks with our visits to Darmstadt, Glasgow, Paris and other centres of 'the style'. On a wet Thursday in March, mid-afternoon, the house was busy but not crowded - certainly no queues.
