Very nice museum. You can see Rembrandt's house and part of his life... The interesting part is that they provide you with an audio guide (see my pic) available in English. Either you press the button to choose information regarding one painting or you just...More

The audio guide that is included with the ticket price gives just the right amount of information. Note that many of the paintings are by people who studied under Rembrandt, not as many by Rembrandt himself. Interesting story about the house itself along with the...More

We went on Sunday afternoon. Actually thought it was closed because there was not a line. Walked right in. Very small but informative. Timing was perfect as we were able to watch the demonstration of how Rembrandt’s students created and mixed his paints. Really friendly...More

It's a small museum, took less than an hour to walk through. A great experience of standing in the room and imagining how masters painted the famous work.

Loved this! Really interesting to see exactly how Rembrandt lived and worked and to see demonstrations of how he etched and made his paint. Great morning spent here!

Nice place to visit but there are not many Rembrandt paintings. But otherwise the house offers an interesting perspective into 17th century living

In my view and of all the museum's we visited during our visit to Amsterdam, this was underwhelming and something of a disappointment. The exhibits were disorganised and there seemed to be maintenance or building work underway but no obvious signage to confirm this. Consequently,...More

Really nice, not overcrowded museum. You can see everything in your own pace, with nobody to bother you. Audio guide is available (in the price of the ticket) in several languages. Beautiful paintings, history of Rembrandt and his students - all in one place. It’s...More

As a big Rembrandt fan I was keen to check this museum out, hoping for an insight into his life and a collection of his work. I found the museum to be very small and as a result overcrowded. The audio tour was interesting, and...More

This is the house that Rembrandt bought for 13000 Guilders (a fortune in the 17th century) and lived and worked (and his apprentices) for a good part of his life. It is an interesting museum; a good part of the museum is given over to...More
