Yes, Rembrandt actually lived here from 1639 till he went bankrupt in 1656... Pretty cool stop and definitely worth your time!

There is a free audio-guide for this attraction which is very helpful in understanding what each room in the house was used for when the artist lived there, including the foyer/gallery, office/sales room, kitchen, bedroom, studio, and student studios. There is also a printmaking room...More

This is a must-see visit! You not only get to see where the Master lived and worked for 20 years but you will see incomparable original masterpieces of his, his teacher, and contemporaries -- both paintings and extraordinary etchings. There is also an informative overview...More

Seeing Rembrandt work again in the context of his splendid home adds another dimension. The house is restored as close as his inventory allows to when Rembrandt lived and worked there. There is excellent information and much to learn about his life and work.

We hadn't planned on visiting this museum but came across it once we saw a map. As it was the house that Rembrandt had lived in for some years it was as if he still lived there. It's a tall narrow house and stairs are...More

Definitely a cert. The Nightwatch is big, boring and representative of the court photographer of mid 17th century...but the house is fascinating. The basement and kitchen where the very short maid sleeps is fab. The oil paint production area is really informative as are his...More

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

You should be absolutely fine, especially if you go in the morning. The big hitters take pre-planning but these gems are pretty much walk in without too much queueing. This does depend on whether you come at peak holiday... More

1 hour should be fine but if you are the kind of person who likes to read the exhibit descriptions plan for a longer visit. Try the free audio tour it's worth every penny! ;) Also, this museum is free as part of the "I... More
