This house is fascinating if you love art. It was his home so you get to see the usual rooms of a house but the highlights for me are Rembrant's studio and also his etchings. This museum is well worth a visit.

The house was sold when he went bankrupt, so there was an inventory, allowing the rooms to be furnished authentically. His studio is used for a live demonstration of painting techniques of the times. Many of his etchings and a few of his paintings are...More

We loved this museum and skipped the line by purchasing The Museumcart. Go to one of the less popular museums in late afternoon and you can literally walk up and purchases a Museumkart. It will save you money if you plan on being in Amsterdam...More

Spent a very interesting and enjoyable two hours here which included two excellent talks/demonstrations (in English) of how Rembrandt made his etchings and how this painting materials were created. The demonstrations we saw started at 2.40 and 3.00 respectively but we only came across them...More

If you are any fan or have any interest in Rembrand, this is a place to visit. The docents are great, the period actors are wonderful, and explain in various languages.

I learned a lot about the painter here. The home also has demonstrations showing how Rembrandt made his paints. The tour was excellent.

This was our first trip to Amsterdam and having the Rembrandt experience was on our list of things to do. We were not disappointed with this quirky little multi storey house filled with great pieces of artwork, some unfinished pieces were included in the display....More

Very different from VG museum. Again telling the story of the artist but very different life. Worth visit.

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

Hi all, Do you recommend that we book the tickets in advance? Are the line and the queue crazy long like Ann Frank's and Van Gogh? Wanted to see I can purchase the Rembrandt House the day of instead of buying in advance since we are not sure about our schedule. Thanks in advance for your tip!

You should be absolutely fine, especially if you go in the morning. The big hitters take pre-planning but these gems are pretty much walk in without too much queueing. This does depend on whether you come at peak holiday... More

No. The Rijksmuseum has a good display though.
Hi, I'm visiting Amsterdam in September and plan to visit the Rembrandt House. Can you tell me about how long you need at the museum? Would it be more than 2 hours? We are also going to the Van Gogh museum that day and would like to plan accordingly. Thanks! Claudia
