This is a reconstruction of Rembrandt s house, of how it was when he lived there. It is quite interesting but, quite frankly, I think your your time would be better spent going to an museum and seeing Rembrandts works. Still, if you want to get s feel on how he lived do go there. It closes later than the... More

I had a very lovely time visiting the home of Rembrandt. The audio guide gave me the ability to walk through the house at my own pace. There are lots of works by Rembrandt and his students. You can also partake in workshops or view some lessons, though numbers are very limited. The house and museum were designed so you... More

Soo nice, a good impression the way people lived in that epoque, in this case The Master Rembrandt himself. A perfect few hours spending between more tiresome activities..

A small house-museum, to find out how Rembrandt lived and learn more about his technique. There are lots of etchings. Reserve 1 hour or more if you intend to take part in a workshop in the studio once used by Rembrandt.

This museum should be on everyone list of things to do in Amsterdam..even if you don't like rembrandt. You can get something out of this lovely museums. There are so many others historical artifacts and the building itself to look at. One of the highlights of my visit to Amsterdam

A friend recommended this & we really enjoyed seeing how he lived, worked & taught. The attic room of artifacts used to set up the tableau's was amazing. Hands on print making was available but we didn't have time and would definitely try it next time.

This is interesting museum, nicely designed to give a sense of Rembrandt’s life. You won’t get to see many of his pictures; there are just a couple of large paintings and a selection of his etchings, but the walls are also hung with many paintings by his contemporaries. The house comprises several storeys, so there are a lot of narrow... More

It is a well-preserved 17th century rather average house / workshop with a lot of reconstructed (partly original) details and painter's attributes, and, yes, Rembrandt lived and worked here, but so could any of his contemporary colleagues. So what? It is neither the most impressive nor the most interesting of this kind of buildings in the historic center of Amsterdam.... More
