I found it very interesting to see the house where Rembrandt lived and worked, both as a painter and as an art dealer.

Good museum showcasing the art and life of Rembrandt. Though there wern't many of his paintings the etchings on the 2nd floor are particularly interesting.

A great way to get a taste of life in Amsterdam in the time of Rembrandt. Well presented house museum and not crowded. Recommended even if you aren't a particular fan of the artist.

Really enjoyed our visit, lockers to put coat's and bags in free of charge. Then given a hand held recorded guide. Lots of steps involved in climbing to top of the house. Very interesting.

Very easy to go back in time and imagine how he lived and dealt art and worked with his apprentices. Just wish there was more of his own works there.

This small museum is well worth the visit. It is a wonderful glimpse into life of Rembrandt and the period as well. The museum also provides very interesting demonstrations. We saw a show about making pigments from natural materials by hand, fascinating!

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
