When we visited they were offering a workship to learn how to do etching and printing. We really enjoyed this and the woman who led it was excellent. A gentleman was also demonstrating how Rembrandt would have ground his paints. This was a very good place to learn about this marvelous artist.

It was interesting to visit the house were he lived and were he worked. The workshop on the last floor is a beautiful room.

Even if you do not particularly like Rembrandt. Free audioguides providing explanations about all the paintings in the house (and there are a lot). 17th century painting demonstrations, complementary with the explanations of the 19th century painting skills of the Van Gogh Museum: interesting to compare the evolution. Amazing collection of etchings.

I am not a Rembrandt fan nor had any knowledge of his life and art but felt obliged to visit the Rembrandt House as he is a great Dutch artist ... oh my god what a sensational place! 1. It was intriguing to see an Amsterdam house from the inside 2. Great insight into 17th century life in general and... More

It was really interesting for us and the only thing we regreted about was that our son, who is quite interested in drawing and... More

As an artist who enjoys printmaking I had a pleasant surprise on the top floor of Rembrandt's House, as a studio was set up for the general public to have a go at a drypoint for no extra charge. Tables were set up for anyone to either copy from one of Rembrandt's own etchings or sketches or do your own... More

A lovely old house in the old Jewish area of Amsterdam were Rembrandt lived and worked. A real eye opener in terms of understanding the artist's life and certainly enabled me to appreciate his paintings better. Probably a good idea to see it before going to the Rijkmuseum. Very good demonstrations of the type of paint he would have used... More

Good insight into Rembrandt's working and everyday life. Most of his "Etchings" are on show and the paint mixing demonstration was particularly interesting. Well laid out with a film show and the free headphone sets give good information throughout.

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.
