This was my second visit to the Rembrandt House. It has improved over the 15 or so years since my last visit and during that time has become a major site in Amsterdam. The paintings are not among Rembrandt's best works, and since the works are not labeled, one is dependent on the recordings. With so many paintings listening to... More

Actually a surprisingly enjoyable experience. We used the Museumkaart for entry. There are demonstrations by very knowledgeable individuals of exactly how Rembrandt worked - including mixing all of his own paints.

We found the museum very interesting, we were given free ear phones to go through the museum. This helped us understand what was going on, it was very helpful. It's amazing to be in the house of such a famous Artist. We learned a lot about His paintings and how paint was made.

The museum is well put together, yet not overwhelming. You can cover this in an hour, if you're in a hurry. The restored rooms give such a wonderful flavor of the times of the great artist. Best of all, there's an active artist's studio on site where (if you have some artistic talent as my wife does) you can draw... More

I was able to partake of learning how to mix pigments as Rembrandt did in the 17th century. There was a women demonstrating the technique in Rembrandt's studio and I volunteered to try my hand at it. As an artist, it was the highlight of my trip.

The Rembrandt house is very interesting, because it houses an almost lost Rembrandt. The experts who show you how the paint was made and applied is particularly interesting.

Brilliant musuem, make sure to get the audio guide to make the most out of it. Stairs are very steep up it. Could spend hours looking at the work
