The museum is intersting to visit. It gives a good overview of the bourgeois lifestyle during the Golden Age of Amsterdam. Strangely, there is not a lot of Rembrandt's artwork there.

This Museum is undergoing major renovations on the outside so it is a bit difficult to notice. Once we found it, there was a long line of people in front of the cash register. This happened at 10:15 on Friday, August 22nd. Since we had museum passes we thought certainly there would be a separate line for ticket holder or... More

I enjoyed this visit, seeing the inside of a Dutch home and seeing how Rembrandt lived. The etchings on display are a museum of their own. I did not go here last time I was in town, feeling it might be too touristy but I went this time and enjohed it very much. Worth a visit.

You get a feel of Rembrandt being in the house although the items are from other collections. The studio is especially atmospheric. The etchings are the best collection in the world.

This place is, even from the outside, just too commercial for my taste, and it was very expensive. I toured the periphery and chose not to go in.

Thanks to Rembrandt's overextending himself financially resulting in sale of his trove of treasures, his home and contents were meticulously inventoried, giving us access to this wonderful reconstruction and insight into his life. Who knew he was such a collector? Art classes take place on site, and the convenient Rembrandt corner restaurant, which we expected to be a tourist trap,... More

Not a bad place to visit/tour. We were impressed to see hands-on experiences with a couple art projects - wish we knew how to enrole in to them but thats OK. The audio phones were key to this visit. Definitely learned because of them. Neat to learn about history / rembrandt. The museum had a lot of side art by... More

We gave up with the queues for Anne Franke's house and decided to visit here instead. It is currently undergoing some refurbishment so the front facade is covered in scaffolding and a printed representation of the house which was a shame. The interior gave an insight into the life of a famous painter it was particularly interesting to see his... More

Although Rembrandt did live here, he was bankrupt when the house and its furnishings were sold to pay his debts. As a result, the furnishings are not original but instead attempt to recreate what the house must/might have looked like. Despite its lack of true authenticity, the rooms are very evocative and give a good idea what his home and... More
