The house is rather far away from the centre of Brussels, but it's easily accessible by tram if one is patient and plans well as opening times are rather irregular. The house itself is nothing grand, but it's so well decorated in the Art Deco...More

As architecture lovers, we adore this little museum and its magnificent gardens and have already visited it several times. It is installed in the private residence of Jewish Dutch banker David Van Buuren (1886-1955) and his wife Alice, which was built in 1928. From the...More

This is the former private house of a banker, where nothing has changed. The house combines art deco with the Amsterdam school, and comes fully furnished with the original furnishings, and loads of artwork. The latter is mainly by the hand of Gustave Van de...More

Quite fantastic place with a chance to feel like you are visiting the van Buuren's rather than the usual museum 'behind a rope' experience. My tip look at the very clever animated film that plays upstairs to learn about David and Alice and then take...More

One of the rare art deco houses in Brussels. Total concept of exterior, interior and garden. The interior of the house is an exquisite combination of luxurious materials and Fine Arts. The carpets of Jaap Gidding, the piano that once belonged to Erik Satie, the...More
