“Learning more about Rembrandt himself”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

The museum is actually the house where Rembrandt lived and worked in the 17th century. It's always facinating to see Rembrandt's work. After visiting this museum, it explains everything, how he played with the light on his painting. In his studio you can see how the artists in the past had to work hard to find the right colour for their painting. There is a demonstration how to make colour from pigments and linseed oil. Most the interior are original, for example the small bed, so you can get the idea how Rembrandt lived and worked in the past. Not only his work are hanging in this museum but also the work of some of his pupils. On the top floor you can learn to make etching by yourself with assistance. It's worth it visiting this museum.

“Interesting history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

Enjoyed the history of Rembrandt as well as the way people lived in his time. I have been twice and neither time was there a line to get in.

“Full of history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

We loved it in here. To actually be in his house (with a very good almost original interior) and to climb the narrow stairs was wonderful. A great insight. In the roof we also had our own go at etching, which was the perfect end to a good visit. Great value.

“So nice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

A real old Amsterdams house, with beautiful old Dutch furnisher. You can imagine how the great painter lived.
We liked Rembrandts bed, so small!

“Definitely a place to visit”
5 of 5 stars 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.
