Yes, he was! And that is something you can feel and smell in all the tiny rooms you visit. It is almost like living in the XVII century, but with jeans.

Nice to see inside a Dutch house of the period, plus a very important one. It was well laid out as Rembrandt intended it to be. Very informative.

Beautiful 17th century mansion , revoking the times Rembrandt lived there. Good explanations and decoration help to bring this Golden Century back to life. Consider it a hidden gem in the city and a must-see for Rembrandt fans

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
