As we had the museum card so glad we went. They do a lot to educate about Rembrandt. They had one person demonstrating the etching on plates that he did and in another room showed how he created his paints. What made all the different colors. They had a replica of his room where he taught his students and some... More

This is really worth a visit and the multimedia tour is good allowing you to listen to the basic description of each room then to find out more by entering different numbers if you wish. Ask when you arrive if there are demonstrations going on as we missed one by dawdling in the previous rooms not realising that it was... More

This museum has 2 or 3 rooms that are period correct. The rest of the home doesn't even pretend to be trying to recreate anything of that era. The information about the making of paints from the period was very informative. I'd say of all the wonderful museums here you may want to skip this one.

I visited the Rembrandt house during my museum rute in Amsterdam. It was Saturday so I was glad that there wasn't a line for get in. It's small and easy to see, but I really liked it. It was nice moving around the house and how they recreated it. You can get a free audio guide and there were different... More

The Rembrandt House deserves a visit during your stay in Amsterdam! And this is not just to see where the great artist lives and worked is also for having a clear imagine on how people were living in Amsterdam in the Golden Age of the city.

In my opinion 13 euro are not few for this kind of experience. Sure, here you are totally embedded in Rembrandt's world: furnitures, beds, cupboards and cabinets. How could it be different? But you can also feel a sensation of artificiality, something like a fiction wacthed closely with no particular emotional involvement. It worth a visit, that's for sure, but... More

Really interesting and informative with interactive sound. Oil paint was being made by artist. Stairs steep.

Enjoyed the house - has a real sense of age. His two studios are fabulous and it's great to see how the house operated both as a residence and as a business. The free audio tour is good, too. However, if time is limited, there are much, much better places to visit.

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighbourhood Profile
Plantage & the East
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 oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
