“Rembrandt House”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

The best part of the tour was to see how the etching plates and pictures were actually made. There was a hands on class to make your own sketch. There was not a long line for this museum.

A popular museum that you should see once in your life. There are lockers available to put you personal belongings in if you don't want to carry them with you.

“Such an interesting Museum and Home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

Want to get a feel for Rembrandt, see his home where he lived and worked, and even watch a demonstration of how he made his etchings? By all means go to Rembrandt House. Allow time to go through the 5 or so floors. Fascinating. There is also a wonderful display of an Italian artist who does etchings. There is also an introductory movie and audio guide. Use can use a silver Holland Pass to enter.

“Rembrandt really lived here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

It is remarkable to be able to walk in his footsteps, see where he painted, how he mixed his paints, where he slept. It is like he was just there yesterday.

“Interesting history and great audio tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

Beautiful art and a well told story in an excellent audio tour. The audio tour, offered in multiple languages, guides you through the home with insights to every room, in additional to information on the paintings and relics found around the house. The tour is quick, taking only about an hour, but the information is great!
