The audio guide provided free with your museum ticket really gave interesting insight into not only Rembrandt's life but also homes and life during the seventeenth century.

We ended up here by chance when trying to avoid torrential rain and thunderstorms which lasted all day. We had been to the Rijksmuseum in the morning but left at lunchtime, by which time there were long queues for everything so we didn't want to go back. We noticed the lovely exterior of the building and then decided to go... More

I'm a big history buff, but am sorry to say I was greatly disappointed by my visit to the Rembrandt House. The admission cost of 12.50 Euros includes an audio tour, which gives an overview of each room in the house (we were in and our in about an hour). None of the furnishings are original to the house, and... More

Although the museum only has one original Rembrandt, it has some very interesting displays and workshops. They had live demonstrations of etchings and what was involved in making paint and canvases that Rembrandt used.

A really lovely little museum that gives a good idea of how the artist lived and worked. We visited on 15th July, Rembrandt's birthday, and were given free cake! They also held a number of special events to celebrate, such as etching workshops. Gift shop had a good range of souvenirs. Best thing in there was the room where Rembrandt... More

When you are there, take time to see the workshops. The staffs are very friendly and it is pretty interesting to see how they created art so many years ago. This museum is an undiscovered pearl.

there are no words that can be spoken to this place .. very valuable history that can not be assessed ... if you are not a connoisseur of art and do not know the history behind it, may not be able to enjoy it, but this is different .. history make this place alive .. .
