REMBRANDT slept here, ate here and worked here! He bought the house when we got commissioned to paint the 'Night Watch'. The house is almost in it's original state, surrounded outside by the modernity of Amsterdam. It is just wonderful thinking of it. The House is well taken care of, obviously and there are two interesting demonstrations during your visit-one... More

The house is refurbished to show exactly what it was like when Rembrandt was living there. As such, it seemed much more real and atmospheric. There are free headphones, allowing you to access the spoken narrative for each room - easy to use and VERY informative. Thoroughly enjoyed this visit - you don't even need to like Rembrandt - the...

Beautiful museum, really interesting. Definetely helps understand the way people lived at that time. The room where the artist was painting is the most interesting one. Surely valuable visit.

Great visit. Really enjoyed the paint and etching demos. And getting to see the studio and students and general house made me learn a lot? Great time.

If you are using a museum card, such as the Amsterdam City Card, then yes, by all means try to add this to your itinerary if you're in Waterlooplein/Jewish Quarter. It's not really interesting, except for the fact Rembrandt lived here. No original furnishings remains. But it's a quick stop, an hour should cover it. If you only have time... More

You get a free audio guide which explains the house, how it worked and Rembrandts life in it. There are always exhibitions in near the print displays and this time it was Glenn Brown's work on show. See pictures for how he re-imagines Rembrandts work)The demonstration of printmaking and paint mixing are fascinating and engaging. The staircases are steep and... More

The museum is in the house where Rembrandt lived for 30 years. It shows how he worked and lived during the 17th century. There are a few of his paintings and one temporary exhibition of his works when we visited. Very educational.

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.
