Maison Autrique - Educational offer

IMG 8972

The Autrique House is the first bourgeois and Art Nouveau house built by the architect Victor Horta in Brussels in 1893. Restored over several years, it now offers an incredible insight into daily life at the turn of the 20th century. The museum allows visitors to explore various themes such as the architect Victor Horta and Art Nouveau; life in Brussels homes at the end of the 19th century; hygiene and clothing; energy (coal, gas, electricity) as well as urban planning and its evolution in Brussels.

The Autrique House's public service is currently developing a range of thematic activities for schools. These guided tours allow children to discover the museum through devices that encourage experimentation and discovery.

  •   On Tuesday and Thursday from 9am to 12am 
  •   Kindergarten & Primary school
  •   Duration : 2 hours
  •   Entry Prices : €5 per child; €2.5 for Schaerbeek schools
  •   Guide: 85€ for one class of maximum 20 children 
  •    In the framework of the program 'auteurices en classe' of the Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles, the classes can make a call to an author to animate a BD patrimony workshop in French. An pluridisciplinary and active experience! 


In my house 1900

Who built the Autrique House? Who lived in this house? Was the neighborhood similar to what we see today? What was this room used for? Through an interactive visit of the house, children will be invited to discover the history of the place, the use of the different spaces and the lives of the people who lived there. An immersion in the daily life of the early 20th century.

Victor Horta brought the garden into the Maison Autrique...

From the basement to the attic, children go in search of the plants and animals hidden in the rooms of the house. They discover that nature's inspiration is everywhere!
For the creative workshop, they compare colors and color ranges and then participate in the creation of a pretty Art Nouveau frieze to decorate the classroom.
