There is nothing like standing in Rembrandt's studio, looking with the light that he used. The museum also has a live demonstration of his making of his pigments (who new the ochre red came from ground up beetles). They also have a very good printing...More

How could a reconstruction of the artist’s home be of interest? Well the answer is because of the way he used his home, effectively as business premises. You see the sort of objects that he used in paintings, how his home was laid out to...More

Certainly interesting to hang out in Rembrandt's house, but don't skip one of the major museums to go here.

My wife and I visited the Rembrandt House on our second visit to Amsterdam. We are not that interested in Rembrandt's art so we were in two minds, but the house itself is great and there were a number of demonstrations set up in the...More

My husband and I spent a very enjoyable time here, exploring the house where Rembrandt lived, worked, and taught. It is quite sobering to think that such a great artist occupied that space while producing his incredible works.

Great spot get the whole feel of what it was like to live and paint here. Unfortunately its all recreated no original tools or instruments all were sold when he was bankrupt. Very well done with audio descriptions available.

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
