Spent a quick holiday in Amsterdam, along with about 10,000 of my closest friends. This museum was the least crowded of those that I visited, and probably also then allowed for the most positive experience. They punctuate the visit with various demonstrations including how etches and paint are made. It was very interesting and fun. They had longer workshops as... More

A fantastic, small museum, portraying not only Rembrandt arts. Don't miss the BBC Simon Schama documentry shown on the first floor. It is fantastic and will give you a whole new perspective on Rembrandt's work and about his time.

Overpriced for what you can see and the amount of time spent here. There isn't really a lot of art displayed but it is pretty cool to see where he lived and learn about his fame compared to Van Gogh and Vermeer. I'm glad I went but if you aren't a real fan then you may feel like you payed... More

This was my second visit to the Rembrandt House. It has improved over the 15 or so years since my last visit and during that time has become a major site in Amsterdam. The paintings are not among Rembrandt's best works, and since the works are not labeled, one is dependent on the recordings. With so many paintings listening to... More

Actually a surprisingly enjoyable experience. We used the Museumkaart for entry. There are demonstrations by very knowledgeable individuals of exactly how Rembrandt worked - including mixing all of his own paints.

This museum combines a chance to visit an interesting traditional Amsterdam house and learn about the life of a great painter. You start in a modern building then move over into the house Rembrandt owned before he lost all his money. You are guided through the house by the free audio guide and can learn all about his life and... More

We found the museum very interesting, we were given free ear phones to go through the museum. This helped us understand what was going on, it was very helpful. It's amazing to be in the house of such a famous Artist. We learned a lot about His paintings and how paint was made.

The museum is well put together, yet not overwhelming. You can cover this in an hour, if you're in a hurry. The restored rooms give such a wonderful flavor of the times of the great artist. Best of all, there's an active artist's studio on site where (if you have some artistic talent as my wife does) you can draw... More
