The tickets are reasonably priced and there were no long queues to deal with. You really need to use the audio guide that’s provided free of charge and gives a comprehensive, (although not too long) synopsis on rooms/etchings and paintings. We spent about 10-15 minutes watching the introduction film which set the scene for our morning slowly strolling through the... More

Excellent exhibition of Rembrandt and his peers and pupils.......was he the genius behind all those amazing etchings or were some of them produced by... More

We went here and had no waiting and loved the whole experience. There was an etching workshop which we joined and enjoyed the most. We have not only photos to take home but our own art work. Great place to go.

This was very well laid out and really gave you a sense of Rembrandt's life here. Don't go here to see Rembrandt's paintings! Only his etchings are here.

We debated on visiting this location but were glad we took the time. The story of Rembrandt's rise and challenges comes to life within the house. Taking time to tour the rooms and listen to the audio guide provided a context that I did not posses before visiting. Our teens were fascinated with the box bed and studio layout. Although... More

Really enjoyed visiting Rembrandthuis - the demonstrations of etching and paint preparation add to the whole experience. Fascinating changing exhibition in the adjacent gallery.

Enjoyed the visit and learned a lot about the artist, the only bad part was waiting for a group of 25 to get in right as we got there so we had a wait. The demo about paint pigments was great.
