Beautiful building and fascinating exhibition. Must see
Stunning art deco building with art scattered throughout and a gallery in the basement. The entry ticket basically allows you to just wander round and explore for yourself, with some notes from the guide leaflet. Definitely worth the trip for fans of art deco.
A stop worth making while around Brussels green area. A piece of great and typical Belgian architecture.
The villa by itself is very beautiful, and I really enjoyed the architecture. They host several contemporary art exhibitions.
This is one of the most impressive houses i have ever seen. The mere fact that it was constructed during the 20's and it still looks like it was built yesterday, says it all. It's beautiful gardens, the majestic pool on the back and, of course, the brilliant interior, make it a worthwile visit. Now a modern art museum, it will surprise you, sometimes positively and sometimes negatively, with its artifacts and paintings. I really felt that the visit of the house itself was more greater than the museum but that's just me. For a modern art enthusiast, it could be a lifetime experience. Definitely a place to visit when in Brussels and looking for something out of the ordinary.
