“Definitely a place to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

Whether you liked Rembrandt or not, this house is certainly worth a visit as it is well kept and is a testimony of the time when Rembrandt lived there with his family. It is also interesting to read about all the drama in the life of this artist.

“One of the best experiences!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2014

When we visited they were offering a workship to learn how to do etching and printing. We really enjoyed this and the woman who led it was excellent. A gentleman was also demonstrating how Rembrandt would have ground his paints. This was a very good place to learn about this marvelous artist.

It was interesting to visit the house were he lived and were he worked. The workshop on the last floor is a beautiful room.

“Interesting visit of a 17th century house ”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.

“Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014

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!
