One great advantage of this over other sites in the city is that I went there at around one in the afternoon and yet was able to walk straight in with no queues! The last time I visited here, forty years ago, the rooms were empty and featureless but since then they have worked hard to present the house as... More

Really enjoyed this museum as much to see and read. I learnt a lot about Rembrandt and enjoyed his paintings and those of his students. Very convenient lockers (free) to leave bags and coats and so enjoy the museum unencumbered.

This is an excellent small museum. Make sure you take the free recorded tour. You get a feel for not only how he lived but how the art industry worked back then. His studio is on the top floor and every now and then they have someone demonstrate how paints were mixed and from which materials each of the colours... More

Interesting if you want to know more of the life of Rembrandt, we rented the litte earphones which tell you information at each stop (very much appreciated!) I did find the tour to end really quick as it was not that large.

We have been to this museum many times. Each time we learn something new about this incredible artist. I cannot believe he died impoverished. What a tragedy. We have seen the presentation about how his prints were made several times. If that is being offered while you are there, it is worth spending the time to this this explanation. You... More

Very enjoyable experience, to visit real home of one of my favorite artists, real genious. He went through a lot of difficulties, suffering that made him stronger. Easy to get in, I made pictures without flashlight . Just was touched by seeing that place where an outstanding artist lived and created his masterpieces.

Pretty interesting history of Rembrandt and his home life in Amsterdam. The audio tour is short--only a dozen or so information spots, but well laid out with great info on Rembrandt's life and work. After the "house" tour, you're led into another building with a great tour of more Rembrandt and his influences on other artists...not as many Rembrandt pieces... More
