The Horta Museum is a historical house museum located in Brussels, Belgium. It is dedicated to the life and work of the Belgian Art Nouveau architect Victor Horta (1861-1947), who is considered one of the pioneers of the Art Nouveau movement. The museum is housed in Horta’s former home and studio, which he designed and built for himself in the late 19th century.

The museum’s collection includes a wide range of architectural drawings, furniture, and decorative objects designed by Horta, as well as a selection of paintings and sculptures by other artists of the Art Nouveau period. The museum’s interiors are a prime example of Horta’s distinctive style, which is characterized by its use of organic forms, curves, and rich materials.

In addition to its permanent collection, the Horta Museum also hosts temporary exhibitions and educational events related to Art Nouveau and Victor Horta’s work. It is a must-visit destination for anyone interested in Art Nouveau, architecture, or design.
