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. Since October 2016, the Horta Museum has been extended allowing it to present temporary exhibitions as well as keeping its important archives and a reference Art Nouveau library consisting of more than 5.000 books.
