This 19th century mansion was first the residence of Brussels patron and art lover Henri Van Cutsem. In 1890, in order to exhibit his collections, he had his private mansion fitted out by young architect Victor Horta. Upon his death in 1904, his protégé, sculptor Guillaume Charlier, inherited the building and started his own collection there. The private mansion, with all its collections, was bequeathed to the town of Saint-Josse-ten-Noode in 1925, on condition that it became a public museum. Nowadays, the museum organizes many events (concerts, visits...).

Showcases and works of art, antique furniture, room with a piano, "oriental" living room, study and bedroom, carriage entrance, staircase...
