I really enjoyed this museum. Its fun to see how the great painter lived back in his days. The house has quite a few floors and has a lot to offer. It is located at the Jodenbreestraat 4 and is open from 10-18h. Entrance costs 12,50€ but its totally worth it.

I was visiting it alone. They have free Audio tour guide about almost every painting, room or object so you can spend around 2-3 hours just listening to it. Also there was a great exhibition about Japanese paper.

Nice to visit while in Amsterdam. House is well preserved. Although you can see only one picture by Rembrandt there. You can have an idea of how he lived and where he lived. There is a lot of pictures made by his students. You receive audio guide for free with the entrance fee, which is 13 euro.

It's well staffed and nicely laid out with decent lockers and lavatories. Part of the exhibit is closed at the moment and that's possibly just as well because the rest really isn't up to anything. There are some demonstrations of paint making and engraving which are educational and some decent Rembrandt contemporary pictures splattered around the walls but there's no... More

Although we got totally lost we eventually made it to Rembrandthuis. The information I had before arriving in Amsterdam advised that entrance tickets could only be bought on line, this is not the case, tickets can be bought upon entry. The museum is a real eye opener into the life and times of Rembrandt.

This was an amazing look into the home of an absolute genius. Loved everything about it. Viewing the reconstructed house, watching the lady make etchings and also the lady making the paint in the same way it would of been done. Nice little gift shop.

We visited here and once inside, we were able to explore at our own pace. There are good facilities including free cloakroom and lockers and a free audio guide service. It was really interesting to explore all the rooms of the house and hear about his life. There were some interactive art workshops which enhanced the experience. Lots of different... More

I study interior design so for me this was very interesting, but found some of the guards a bit scary, the demonstrations are good though. There's a free audio tour which is good, but unless your looking for interiors you could find this slightly boring, and expensive for what it is.

I really enjoyed visiting the Rembrant House. The kitchen, entrance, studio, well just every room, were so interesting. My visit gave more insight into Rembrandt's life.

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighborhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
