Smallish house filled with info about Rembrandt and how he lived his life. I'm guessing all the paintings displayed were copies. Easy to navigate and the hand held guide thingos very efficient . Nice area for wandering about afterwards.

Hand held Audio guide is educational and informative. Loved the fact that u can have your virtual tour emailed to you. Very strict on security and this is a cultural piecè of heaven on earth. Gift shop hugely disappointing with lack of any variety of merchandise in relation to subject matter and somewhat saddened that this is not an area... More

This museum is an interesting look into the life of a painter in the 17th century. The furnishings and artifacts make an interesting view into history. The paintings of his students are good, however none are by Rembrandt. Combine this with the Maritime Museum and the local flee market to justify the walk.

The place is well kept and the security is very tight there. There is a free locker for those who need them and the free electronic tour guy is the best. If you love art, then this is well worth the money.

Throughly enjoyed my visit to Rembrandt's house, it exceeded my expectations! What was so wonderful is that you get to walk through each of the rooms and not have that sterile museum feel. They give you an audio tour so that you can go at your own pace, plus at the end you can have them email you your virtual... More

Interesting walk around Rembrandts house and a demonstration thrown in on how he did his etchings. Not many of his paintings but still an enjoyable visit. Would recommend

Worth the visit for those who are interested in art. It was not busy when I went and was able to stroll at leisure. It is a self guided tour with the aid of an audiobook in English explaining the life and paintings of Rembrandt and his students. Well worth the price

It was a really interesting trip through Rembrandt's old and beautiful house, seeing the architecture of the house, some of his paintings, his collection of exotic things and just being in his studio! Great experience!

Really enjoyed this-the house is beautiful and the audio guide is very informative and gives great information on the various rooms in the house and his life and his paintings. There is a very good demonstration on how he did his etchings also.

It was interesting but quite busy. If you love Rembrandt then it is a must but if not the there are other houses which I think are better.

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.
