Owner description: Rembrandt lived and worked from 1639 to 1658 in this 17th-century house, which today is a museum that pays tribute to the artist's life and career.

My wife and I are Rembrandt enthusiasts and would not have left Amsterdam without visiting his home. The thing about this museum is more the experience of being in the very home where the great artist lived and worked. However, the Rembrandt etching exhibit is notable.

When we visited there was a docent in the studio room who showed how paints were made in the 1600s. She discussed each color and actually demonstrated the process with the components used. But of course, the details that we found interesting could easily bore others. Clearly, if one wants to see Rembrandt paintings - got to the Rijksmuseum. If one is able to find some sort of enlightenment by walking the halls that Rembrandt walked in the light that Rembrandt painted with, Rembrandt House is excellent.

As for the cost, if it takes 12.50 Euro to keep the project going - then that is what it takes.

Myself and my boyfriend went here. On the outside it doesn't even look like a museum and I kept passing it off until I had a closer look at the map. Very interesting and the live artist at work was really good. One of the most talked about artists in Amsterdam so it's pretty much a definite go see.

My boyfriend who has 0% interest in museum found this to be his favorite site seeing experience on our trip.

Although it is smaller than I had expected (typical American expectation) it made for a wonderful afternoon together with the Anne Frank house.

If you enjoy art it is a must do while in Amsterdam!

A wonderful museum which offers flavour of what life was like in Rembrandt's house. There is a live demonstration as to how his engravings were printed and the audio tour is very helpful and interesting.

Excellent audio sets giving loads of info about Rembrandt and his life. Beautiful house. Saw two excellent demonstrations - One of how Rembrandt would have prepared his etchings/prints and one of how he would have mixed paint.

Staff friendly and knowledgeable. Would recommend a visit - good value.
