“We were impressed - well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014 via mobile

We planned to stop in this museum in order to make use of the last hour of our I AMSTERDAM cards. We wer really impressed to see the demonstrations for the printing techniques and paint preparation. It was really interesting for us and the only thing we regreted about was that our son, who is quite interested in drawing and painting, was actually not with us.
We would really recomend for everyone to include this museum in their plan for their Amsterdam visit.

“Pleasant surprise on top floor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

As an artist who enjoys printmaking I had a pleasant surprise on the top floor of Rembrandt's House, as a studio was set up for the general public to have a go at a drypoint for no extra charge. Tables were set up for anyone to either copy from one of Rembrandt's own etchings or sketches or do your own design, which I did. You could then ink up, wipe down and send through the press to produce a little original print, and repeat a second time to give one to the House. An assistant was available to give guidance, overalls were available to protect your clothes, and a wall was dedicated to the display of tourists drypoints which made for an interesting exhibition.
The house itself was a wonderful museum and Rembrandt's art was also on display.

“Unmissable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2014

A lovely old house in the old Jewish area of Amsterdam were Rembrandt lived and worked. A real eye opener in terms of understanding the artist's life and certainly enabled me to appreciate his paintings better. Probably a good idea to see it before going to the Rijkmuseum. Very good demonstrations of the type of paint he would have used and his etchings techniques.

This is a great museum and they offer free audio on your entrance to the museum. There is a workshop that you can participate in every 30 mins.
