Lovely little hidden gem in the Amsterdam city center. Good for a short visit. 1 hour tops. Enthusiastic employees who would love to tell you more and show you the little secrets they got to know during their work. (That is, when they have time for it.)

We visited this museum after seeing that the Anne Frank House is near impossible in terms of line. Therefore we tried one of the smaller museuems and found Rembrandt House to be very interesting. The techniques he used and the life he lived was extremely interesting. It does not take long to get through the house but its well done... More

Our group of ten (five adults, five teenagers) much enjoyed Rembrandt's home. The spiral stairs were a bit of a challenge for the elders of our group, but not insurmountable. Most of us were much more interested in the glimpse into Rembrandt's daily life than in his artwork (because most of us are philistines). Bought our tickets online, though certainly... More

Felt quite emotional being in the rooms he used. Yes the furniture and fittings were reconstructed but attention to detail and the effort made to make sure that everything was from the correct historical date was much appreciated.Need good knees for the stairs.

Going here gets you to a neighborhood that you might not otherwise have seen, a little bit away from the Royal Palace and the central downtown. it is wonderful to see the very place where Rembrandt worked and lived, and the ability to see his tools, the busts he used as inspiration, and his paint palate is terrific. Well worth... More

Loved the opportunity to get some insights into the life and work of the genius Rembrandt by being in his house. Strongly recommend seeing the demo on how he produced his etchings - the icing on the cake!

Well, you need to appreciate late medieval culture and visual arts or this exhibition might prove quite a drag. If you are a culture nerd like me then do not skip this, free with your IAMsterdam card. Some people might even get a hint of what the point is in painting and etching hundreds of self-portraits ;)

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighborhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
