House museums often provide one of those intimate, off-the-beaten-track experiences that you can’t always get at bigger venues.

Brussels most famed architect, Victor Horta has left Art Nouveau treasures dotted all over Brussels, such as his four ‘Major Townhouses’ that have earned a spot on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Among them is his own family home and atelier, which still breathes the pioneer’s style down to the smallest details. Its open plan layout, generally curved shapes, colorful mosaics, flowery motifs and grand spiral staircase have been completely restored and can be admired today, along with regular temporary exhibitions that are carefully curated to connect to Horta and his legacy.
