“Interesting visit of a 17th century house ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

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 Rembrandt as an artist in particular.

3. There are two artistic demonstrations, one is techniques of prints (and which R engaged), the second how artists made their paints in the 17th century (a lengthy process of smashing stones and minerals from exotic places then adding various ingredients). I was amazed how difficult it was to make a print and paint, it was absolutely fascinating.

4. Big collection of Rembrandts prints

5. An opportunity to be creative on the top floor where visitors are invited to get artistic

Very well done, highly recommended!

“We were impressed - well worth a visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014 via mobile

We planned to stop in this museum in order to make use of the last hour of our I AMSTERDAM cards. We wer really impressed to see the demonstrations for the printing techniques and paint preparation. It was really interesting for us and the only thing we regreted about was that our son, who is quite interested in drawing and painting, was actually not with us.
We would really recomend for everyone to include this museum in their plan for their Amsterdam visit.

“Pleasant surprise on top floor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

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 design, which I did. You could then ink up, wipe down and send through the press to produce a little original print, and repeat a second time to give one to the House. An assistant was available to give guidance, overalls were available to protect your clothes, and a wall was dedicated to the display of tourists drypoints which made for an interesting exhibition.
The house itself was a wonderful museum and Rembrandt's art was also on display.
