This is a great museum and they offer free audio on your entrance to the museum. There is a workshop that you can participate in every 30 mins.

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.

We loved this museum and we got to make etchings that really added to the experience. We did this first before we went to the Rijksmuseum and I think it truly added to our appreciation of Rembrandt's masterpieces.

The rooms Rembrandt lived in were interesting. Some of the etching displays were a little dull, but compensated for by the excellent demonstration given with a succinct but comprehensive overview of Rembrandt's style and techniques.

While you can see some of Remrandt's work in the Rijksmuseum, this museum is much nicer and also has a lot of his art. During part of his life, Rembrandt was very popular and successful. Rich people all wanted their picture painted by him, so the money was rolling in. He used this money as the down payment on this... More

It was ok, not to write home about it, but glad I went. No Rembrandt's paintings, just one. Not detailed enough, but gives you an idea of his living and working quarters.

One of Rembrandt’s former homes has been converted into a museum and contains a collection of period furniture and other pieces that either belonged to the grand master or were very similar to items he owned at the time. It turns out the artist went through a bit of a rough patch (don’t they all) and filed for bankruptcy –... More

A small, but nice museum to see - gives a great insight on the private side of life in Amsterdam in 17C. It is a small picture gallery itself, with lots of paintings of Rembrandt's students, with the free audioguide you get some information on almost all of them. The etching process is demonstrated in one of the rooms, there's... More

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.
