Lovely house with lots of artifacts. We especially loved the tiles on the walls on the upper floors and seeing the studio on the top floor.

This is a very interesting, small museum inside the house where Rembrandt worked most of his renown years. We did it in 30 min and it was absolutely worth it. You can better understand life in the Golden Age. And you get a climpse into the works of a master. Also very interesting for kids.

It is well worth a visit! The rooms are very well furnished with period furniture. I particularly liked the kitchen and the studio. You can truly imagine the light coming in from the windows and how it influenced his painting. We went around a second time to see some of the rooms again as they were so nice! There is... More

It was interesting to see how the great master lived and hear the various details about his family life, his artistic activity and even take part in a sm\hort course , waiting for the master to pop up and refer to my sketch. Well organized audio tour and a rare opportunity to view life behind the stage.

Worth a quick stroll through the house. Be sure to pick up the free audiophones first. This will give you good background before going to the Rijksmuseum. The section on Rembrandt's students is at the end of the walkthrough and is also very instructive before you go to the Rijksmuseum.

To be in the same room that Rembrandt was, where he painted, where he slept... Well, it is a great experience. Besides, you can see a typical canal house of Amsterdam. Audioguide is nice, although not great as in other museums

The free audio describing Rembrandt's life was very interesting. Walking there was equally interesting with a local flea market and a flower market enroute, walking along the canals.

Rembrandt paid a fortune to buy his house and you would expect a more sumptuous and bigger one. Just a few visitors fill the rooms and you have few time to appreciate how Rembrandt's life was like.

A wonderful way to see what the fascinating Dutch houses look like on the inside. This museum is not sought out by the majority of tourists, but it should be.
