I liked their engaging ways to introduce hard art skills that general public not familiar with, such as etching and pigment making. They have professionals display onsite to teach how printing and pigment is made. I learned a lot!

Me and my partner visited today.I am not a huge Rembrandt fan and my other half not really into art. However this was a real treat. If you expect to see the mans works then don't bother. However it is a good example of explaining how the art world and Rembrandt's processes and business worked. I was shocked and suprised... More

I adored my visit to the Rembrandt House Museum in Amsterdam. There is the interest of seeing a historic house (in which Rembrandt actually lived in) which wonderfully preserved and also a range of original works by Rembrandt. What really made me enthusiastic about this attraction was the demonstration of how a print is made from an etched plate and... More

It was interesting to see for yourself how was Rembrandt's house during his fame. It was 3 floored with many rooms. My favorite is his studio: big & wide. The lighting is perfect with his easel in the middle of the room & his giant canvas.

Restored house showing how the artist lived and worked as well as displaying many paintings of not. I was lucky to visit on the day when a 'new' self portrait went on view for the first time.. A good demonstration too of how etchings were done in his time. Staff very friendly and helpful. Not to be missed.

This museum is really fun. It may not be the largest or the most grand in Amsterdam, but it certainly is one of my favorites. You get to really see inside Rembrandt's life, as well as some of his works. They even have etching workshops to show how he created his art. I loved it so much, and if I... More

Enjoyed this museum, especially the talk on How the paint was mixed, very interesting. The stairs were a bit difficult to manage.

Rembrandt "lived" here. Rembrandt "worked" here. This is a great place to learn a bit about this brilliant painter and (more importantly) learn about how he lived and worked while living in Amsterdam. This is not a dead place but more of a living museum. The well done audio guide helps bring to life the paintings (most are by Rembrandt's... More

Difficult to believe that this house is standing since the 1600's. It was a amazing to walk up the stairs just as Rembrandt did, and to stand in his studio as he once did. We were shown how he mixed his paints and was told where he got the materials from. Some were imported from Russia. It makes his work... More
