The museum is very well done. You get a real sense of what it must have been like when Rembrandt lived, worked and traded there. My favourite part was in his studio where a guide explained how the paint was mixed and secrets of his...More

Very interesting to visit and imagine yourself in his studio. A guide was demonstrating the mixing of colors as it was done then---she was engaging, let us try it ourselves and we learned a lot!

Excellent museum about the real life and activities of Rembrandt, inside his house...realistic and with a great attention to details! I suggest this amazing experience in Amsterdam, but I advice about the e-tickets of Tours&tickets: if you book online in advance they send the tickets...More

The house has been very well restored and turned into a museum. Rembrandt almost comes alive. Even though I am not a fan of his works, the visit here was very interesting.

I came especially for the color mixing presentation. What an amazing idea to see the Rembrand pigment mixing techniques and palettes come to life. Big opportunity that turned into a big, big dissapointment, bad presentation, needs revision urgently. What an old fashioned teaching style!!!! Does...More

The house looks like many others but inside you can find a piece of great history and when you are careful you can feel the Rembrant breath. Great story about one of the famous paintings - The Jewish Bride - is told in the cinema...More

About 1 K from Amsterdam central station or you can take the tram, we walked from Van Gough thru the flower market. The house is ok, but you came for the art, so see the art and explanations. See also the area he lived in,...More

Rembrandt's large studio at the top of the house is impressive, with wonderful light. You can almost picture Rembrandt greeting prospective art buyers in his ground floor side parlor. The kitchen and bedroom was informative as well.

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

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
