An interesting sight to visit. You'll see how the master lived and can read interesting details about his life. Lots of information but you can digest everything in an hour or so. It's also close to the fleamarket so you can visit on your way there. But beware - you do not see the famous Nightwatch here :) That's THE... More

This museum, formerly Rembrandt's house and studio, will certainly add to your Rembrandt experience. The house is gorgeous, and the walls are covered with his actual artworks. The lower level, where the manufacture of his paint was analyzed, was too dry for me, but someone who paints would likely find it fascinating. Nice little gift shop.

My husband knew much more about Rembrandt's House than I did, so this museum turned out to be a pleasant surprise. The audio tour gave you a lot of good information about Rembrandt's time in this house. The museum was easy to go through, the crowds were small, and the tour was very informative. We used one of our silver... More

Rembrandt's house is a facinating place. Well worth a visit. When we were there they was a display of his prints.

I thoroughly enjoyed the tour of this home. First, be sure to pick up a complementary audio guide, available in multiple languages, as it enhanced my understanding of each room as well as the objects in that room. I enjoyed seeing and hearing about his interests and seeing the studio where he gave instruction to upcoming artists. I'm not sure... More

This was absolutely an amazing and interesting experience. We had just three days and I had allowed two hours which we had to stick to because we had tickets to something immediately following this experience. They have demonstrations of etching and painting alternating about every hour, and both are extremely informative and worth attending to if you have a strong... More

An interesting area, with Rembrandt's real home... and the different floors , the kitchen and the different rooms with their contents, beds, painting studios, his students' studio, and actual paintings. We had to climb three or four floors on the wooden spiral stairs which were not comfortable... if one has difficulty in walking... no elevator....

Amsterdam is full of art museums and although very famous in his own right, I feel Rembrandt's House is slightly overshadowed by the Van Gogh museum. This museum was great though. Not only has the house been restored to what it would've been like, but there's also frequent demonstrations on how he made his etching plates and printed, and also... More

If you are interessted in Rembrandt's work and life you should visit his house. It doesn't look like much from the outside but the inside is very interesting. Plus there's workshops you can take part in.

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.
