This was not cheap to enter however it was very informative particularly for those fans of art and in particular this Master. I knew nothing however my girlfriend is a fan but I learned a lot and gained an appreciation of his talents so long ago. It is a bit difficult if you have difficulty walking as there are several...

Very, very interesting. Learned about how Rembrandt made his paints and saw many of his etchings, which I much prefer to his commissioned works.

A really good little attraction 12.50 euros for adults with a free audio guide. You wander round the recreated house as well as learning all about rembrandts life and works.

From a cursory look, this did not look like something to come in out of the rain for. Expected more.

This was our biggest surprise of our weeklong art visit to the Netherlands. We were really pleased to be able to go to the place where Rembrandt lived and worked. We were welcomed by friendly staff at the desk, who made our children feel valued. The house is well laid out, with a simple one way route through the rooms,... More

We enjoyed this museum. The audio aid was helpful. Quick enough to get through and if you have time, there are free art classes in etching.

The Rembrandt House was a pleasant surprise on my visit to Amsterdam. I wasn't sure what to expect, but I really enjoyed the printmaking demonstration and exhibits. It features a nice gift shop and is very manageable attraction for an hour-plus of time.

Rembrandt's house contains some actual furnishings and the tour was thorough. His short beds are something to see. The etchings displayed are beautiful and an etcher showed how meticulous the work is--quite an achievement! Entrance was only 12 euros.

Love this place. Bit on the dear side to enter but I know if you match it with another tour it's cheaper. Kids love it,,, queue not as long as London which is good. Overall with a visit but on the dear side in my opinion
