Hortamuseum - Horta's Young Friends


Horta's Young Friends

The Horta's Young Friends, a group of Art Nouveau enthusiasts (< 35 years old), meet regularly to visit emblematic sites of the 'fin de siècle' period and exhibitions related to it.

Unlimited and free access to the Horta Museum  
One free visit for a friend per year  
Access to the newsletter of the Friends of the Horta Museum, "Circa 1900"  
Access to the activities of the Friends of the Horta Museum at a reduced price (lectures, excursions, guided tours, etc.)
