Referred onto this place from a local guide, worth a visit. It has such a good collection and is in his original house.

We visited Rembrandthuis before going to the Rijksmuseum as we thought it important to know more about the man before viewing his works of art. The house was well organized and impressive. It was well worth the visit.

It would be easy to spend hours enjoying all the great works of art bySteen,Hais, Vermeer etc. Of course the crowning jewel is seeing Rembrandt's work up close.

A very interesting place if you like observing and being in the actual place that a great artist lived. There's no need to book online - there was no queue on three of the days when we went passed (we visited in August) Upon entering there is an interesting video show about the painter his house and his troubles.

We stumbled across this by accident, and was glad we went in, very interesting. The staff are rude though, not a smile from any of them, the guy on the lockers asked me very abruptly if I needed my stick. When I said yes he just glared at me! Steep stairs. Visited about 11 am, not many people there at... More

Lots of narrow winding stairs in this building, so don't go if you can't climb. Very interesting exhibits. Didn't originally plan on going, but was close to our hotel and we needed to buy our museum pass, which was available at this location.

Great museum - the rennovations paid off. The layout allows for good viewing with crowds, and the information sheets on the Vermeer / Rembrandt level were very informative. A must go! Tip - go 2 hours before closing and it is not as busy.

Visited loads of museums in Amsterdam - enjoyed this the best of all. In Rembrandthuis there was a man demonstrating and explaining how Rembrandt sourced various materials from all over the world - minerals etc and had to process and prepare them to make the paint. It was extremely informative and fascinating and enjoyable.

If the artwork is the main show, this museum is the behind-the-scenes special that explains how it was made. Housed in Rembrandt's actual home and studio, where he lived for about 20 years, this place presents fascinating revelations about how he lived and worked, what he was interested in, and how (like many of us) he wasn't all that financially...
