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.

We definitely enjoyed our visit to the Hortamuseum; its a beautiful Jugendstil buildung, with some nice details in the re-decoration. Unfortunately I have to confirm that the photography policy is just too strict - all bags and mobiles have to be left at the entrance...More
