Whenever we go to Amsterdam, we always visit Rembrandt's home. There are over 70 of his works of art displayed and it is never very crowded. In addition, there is one room filled with facsimiles of his original objects of art.

The museum is on two adjacent blocks in the museum district, one block being the actual house that Rembrandt lived and worked in. Rembrandt was fairly well off to start with, and the mortgage on the house was something like 13,000 guilders a month (when an average labourer’s wage was about 300 guilders a month!). Unfortunately for him, he eventually... More

Very interesting to see the home of Rembrandt. They put on demos to show how his work was done at the time. Not sure there is anything special about the house except for the obvious connection.

Provides nice insight into his life and the session on etchings is interesting. Collections are not the greatest but his life and life style in that period is nice to see. Small but nicely put together

Rembrandt's house gives interesting insights into both the painter and also how the elite lived at the time. The house itself is fascinating, and has been restored as much as possible to its state when Rembrandt lived there. All this is very well explained by the complimentary audio guide, which gives just the right amount of details. His workshop is... More

Gives you excellent idea of his household and as well of the use of the Dutch houses. The audio guide is good, not to detailed though. There are some presential explanations done inside, those are very interesting. Only 1 painting of his is shown, don't be disappointed.

I always find that understanding the times and environment notable people lived help understand them and their work. Few people would dispute that Rembrandt is one of the Dutch masters and that his paintings are excellent. The Dutch are definitely proud of him and his work, which made a visit to his one time home an important experience for me.... More

This is a house, not on a canal, in which Rembrandt lived. It has been refurbished with appropriate artifacts to give a feel of what it once was like. Take it at this level and it is well worth a visit. You are visiting the actual house in which Rembrandt lived - what is this worth? For me as it... More

This is Rembrandt's house that has been restored in order to look as it would have when he lived there. We went as it was free entrance with the iamsterdam pass but I am not sure I would pay to go in there otherwise. It is essentially just an old house with furniture of the time but you can get...
