One should go in order to see how Rembrand used to live. Very well organized, clean, explanatory and educational. This is worth the visit!

It's a fantastic place that takes you to the era when Rembrandt lived and how he lived, conditions, everything. Very good for history students (and teachers too).

Interesting to see where Rembrandt used to live and work. The space is properly segmented and there is even an area for visitors to do sketching.

I hadn't have great expectations, because the house, from outside, appears too small for a proper museum. I've learned about etching and drawing with shadows. You must see the demonstration about etching technique. This was the highlight of the visit.

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
