Made a short visit to Rembrandt's house on recent trip to Amsterdam. Free audio guide provided which I recommend you get as there are very limited information plaques in the building. Very informative commentary provided and interesting insights into how Rembrandt lived and worked. Was a good complement to seeing his works in the worlds galleries. Recommend a look when... More

The house has been put back to it's original status including the easel and Rembrant's massive collection of artifacts. You get a great perspective of what life was like during that period.

The first part of the museum is located in the house in which Rembrandt lived and worked, with furnishings from the period, based on the inventory made when he went bankrupt and his property was auctioned off (bad for him, good for us.) The highlights were demonstrations of printmaking and paint preparation by knowledgeable staff. The free audioguide was quite... More

Visited on our last day in Amsterdam. Recommended time for a visit is between 1-2hrs. When visiting you will get a very good idea as to what it was like to be Rembrandt and to be living within those premises. When visiting the house, you will see how the kitchen was set up, the general accommodation and how artwork was... More

A most worthwhile small museum that gives a sense not just of Rembrandt's art, but his work and life.

There is not much of Rembrandt's work displayed in the house but the museum is more about his life and how he lived within the house, his friends and family. It was a fascinating insight in to life during that time and while we were there, we had a very interesting talk and demonstration on etching and paint preparation. A... More

Also a good museum but not as crowded as Van Gogh. A must see when in Amsterdam too ! Best to have your tickets prior to the actual visit so as not to waste time.

Being here was amazing. Thinking of Rembrandt working in this space was incredible. The light, the windows, walking through this little space was worth it. Go.

Although not quite as charming as the Maison Victor Hugo or Balzac in Paris, there is still a lot to like about Rembrandt's House in Amsterdam, and also a lot to learn. This attraction participates in the I Amsterdam card (we highly recommend!) and you also get a free audiotour which offers excellent information. Great museum shop, too- small but... More
