I enjoyed how this museum has been curated with a great history lesson on the times and his work within the times, then on to see the physical space with stops during the tour to see how paint was created and stored during that period...More

Rembrandt's house museum was without a doubt one of the best experiences visiting Amsterdam. This small house is not just a famous painters house, it is a glimpse into the life of an art dealer and how he lived his life and created his patronage/...More

A great visit for all ages. If you can, try to jump in on the demonstrations held throughout the day. Space is small, so ask for the timing of the next one when you arrive.

Although the space is small, it is very nice and really a special experience to be in Rembrandt's former apartment and now the museum !! This should be on everyone's bucket list, even if you are not much of an art lovers.

The house of Rembrandt is a small museum, but it is really interesting since the visitor can nit onky see Rembrandt's paintings but to feel inmersed in the everyday life of the painter during his lifetime. The visitor can see the kitchen of his house,...More

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
