The Horta Museum is located in the private house and studio of Victor Horta (1861-1947).
Built between 1898 and 1901 at 23-25, rue Américaine in Saint-Gilles, Brussels, the two buildings are typical of Art Nouveau at its height. The interior decoration has largely been retained, the mosaics, stained glass, and wall decorations forming a harmonious and elegant whole, down to the last detail.
As well as actively supporting the Museum, its Friends are also collectors.
For World Art Nouveau Day, they have lent the Museum works that evoke the animal kingdom and display the European aspect of Art Nouveau.

Maison du Peuple
Thanks to the 3D restitution hypothesis of the Maison du Peuple, you can, not only discover the exterior and interior spaces of this emblematic building by Victor Horta (1896) but also learn more about the history, architecture, functions and... the destruction (1965) of this building.
This project was made possible with the support of the Baillet-Latour Fund. It is the result of collaboration between the Horta Museum and the Alice Laboratory (La Cambre-Horta Faculty of Architecture).
Horta & C° is an association founded in 2021 under the auspices of the Horta Museum. They organise a wide range of activities: lectures, interior visits, excursions, etc. The activities are scheduled in Dutch, English and French. Horta & C° will immerse you in the fascinating work of the pioneers of Art Nouveau, but also of lesser-known contemporaries. The association does not limit itself to architecture, but also covers the applied arts, literature and urban planning, from Art Nouveau at the end of the 19th century to the aftermath of the Second World War.
From 10 June onwards, you will be able to buy the ART NOUVEAU PASS which will allow you to visit many emblematic places of this period, including the Horta Museum !
