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 .. .

The sessions on colour mixing and etching were great. Staff were wonderful and we really enjoyed our visit. Get involved in the activities and you will too!

A wonderful experience. The home was well preserved with many interesting rooms and furnishing. The audio guide was great, too. Exceptional demonstrations by knowledgeable experts, too. We left there feeling in awe; we actually spent time in the studio of Rembrandt!

Overall I was a disappointed with the visit. There is not much to see and is rather expensive for what it offers. I was expecting to learn more about the life and work of Rembrandt but felt disappointed. Not many works of the artist were on display.

A very interesting experience where one learns a lot about Rembrandt and his life. I was especially interested in seeing his studio and therefore experiencing the natural light that he had whilst painting. We'll worth a visit and the audio guides are free.

Rembrandt's House is definitely worth a visit - reasonably priced too (especially as the audio pack was included in the price). Very interesting to learn about the man and his life and to see the room where he created some of his masterpieces. Also, combine this trip, as you are in this area, with a visit to the Gasson diamond... More

This house is so interesting! You learn about Rembrandt and his life, but they also give a demonstration of how the etchings are done, and you can try making one yourself! Loved it!

Impeccably maintained, will take you back to the time when the great artist spend his years living and painting in that house. The paint, his instruments, his bed , his room all intact, fabulous experience

Rembrandt's house is worth a visit ! Not only to learn something about his life and his work, but also to understand how people lived in Amsterdam during the 17th century.

A very specialist Museum, for fans of REmbrandt. See where he lived and worked until forced out by bankruptcy. The access stairs are naturally very steep, narrow and spiral, as Dutch houses are so narrow, but the reconstruction of the house as it might have looked to Rembrandt is well done and worth the effort. There is a good introductory... More
