This is a small museum, but has lots of value. Standing in the kitchen of Rembrandt is quite exciting. Seeing the studio where many masters were trained is so interesting.

We spent 90 minutes at this lovely museum, which was Rembrandt's home for many years. You can not only see where he lived and worked, but also some of his works, and those of his students. Tastefully arranged, and self-explanatory when you read the signs...More

I was truly surprised that this museum. There was lots of Rembrandt's paintings. Stairs are steep but well worth it.

To see Rembrandt’s house was the attraction for us and we enjoyed the audio self-guided tour - be sure to sign-up for the email tour access to relive your tour at home. Amazing to see his studio and where he taught. Highly recommend

Where can I start? For someone who wasn't passionate about Rembrandt before the visit, I must say this place was an eye opener. The house is pretty much as the painter had it during his years here, including the room furniture, kitchen, and most of...More

This house where Rembrandt lived and worked is really worth seeing - his studio, paintings and living rooms are so atmospheric and give a much more intimate feel to the larger museums.

It was wonderful to experience Rembrandt's home and feel a little of what his life was like. Warning-like so many attractions in Europe, the house has lots of stairs, but where they lead is amazing! His home, studio, teaching areas, workshop collection, gallery--all were amazing...More

Highly recommend seeing this museum/house if you are an art lover or love Rembrandt. It used to be his former house during the height of his career- he later lost it due to bankruptcy. :( The house has some good collections and you get to...More

The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides
visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)
while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at
Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s
