Nice to see a collection of his works and an idea about his time. The most interesting part was the demonstration about making paint itself. It gave such a good insight in the technicalities that preceded the actual painting process.

Very interesting to see where the man actually lived. Watched a demo on how they made paints. Recommended by a friend and glad I went.
The showing of a BBC documentary before you go round the house means that you see it with more understanding of his life there plus a great explanation of some of his later works. The house then is very interesting with many pictures.

Very interesting and informative small museum. Free audio guide is excellent. Try to get into a demonstration, too (we went to the etching/printmaking one). Film also worth watching to get a better sense of Rembrandt's life and art. Would recommend going here before the Rijksmuseum!
