This intimate look at how and where Rembrandt worked and lived provides us with a wonderful perspective of the man. A audio tour at no additional cost enhances the tour. One thing to watch for is budding young artists inspecting every detail. The stairs can be a bit of a challenge for some people. you soon realize the impact that... More

A visit to the Rembrandt house provides a perspective not available through the bigger museums that display Rembrandt's art. The experience generally starts with a video summarizing Rembrandt's life. As you then make your way, through the various rooms in the house, the free audio tour device really enhances the experience. You simply punch in the number which corresponds to... More

This perfect little museum is one of the best I've very been to. Showing you Rembrants house re created from his scratches with lots of little artefacts and touches that transport you back in time as you look out of the windows that the artist himself must have gazed from. The staff are extremely knowledgable- we spent a long time... More

We went in the morning to avoid the queues. The initial sit down video footage gives his fully life story before your proceed into the main house. And the house is just beautiful. Rooms with his work and work from local artists. He has an artifacts room with old fossils, venetian glass, spears, roman busts, etc dating back to the... More

If you like Rembrandt you should visit his house. It is recently renovated and has been laid out with furniture as it was in his day. There are lots of his etchings to see and there are wonderful demonstrations of the etching technique and making paint.

This mansion was the painter's home for nearly 20 years. He was at his peak during this time. The furniture is not original but it does have the feel of a well to do medieval home. There are demonstrations of printing and work shops for painting. We did not participate in these since it was lunch time. There are prints... More

Not high on our list of things to do but glad we went. The staff demonstrate the engravers skill and the artists technique particularly as it relates to Rembrandt. A great half day tour.

Seeing his paintings can be a bit overwhelming, but visiting one of the houses he lived in, tells a lot about the man. It also gives a good impression how it was to live in a house in Amsterdam in that period. There are often Rembrandt etchings exposed, and people are willing to give you lots of information. Quite an... More

The Rembrandt House has developed over the years and the rooms are now furnished and the studio inhabited by a most informative member of staff who explains the pigments and making of the paints and techniques of the master, extremely interesting. Upstairs in the print studio you can have a go yourself! This is a fabulous museum and will have... More

Although a bit pricey, it is good to see Rembrandt's house and studio where he produced so many of his greatest works. The film show puts his life in perspective. I enjoyed the demonstration of pigment use and paint making.

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.
