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.

Beautiful house with lots of character. It was very interesting to see where Rembrandt worked and created. In the museum you can see two presentations: 1. how to make a print/graphic and 2. how painters used to make oil paint.

This humanizes Rembrandt. It is his former home. The tour give a context to his work that is missing in other museums. If you love art (any period), this is a must see.

We really enjoyed the visit to the museum. You are provided with headset which really provide quite a bit of detail about your visit to each room. It was quite interesting to see how the house was set up for an artist like Rembrandt.

Rembrandt lost this house and all his possessions in a foreclosure so much of what is here is a reproduction based on paintings and official foreclosure documentation. But this is a spectacular snapshot of how the master lived. We went early in the day, so...More

This is an interesting house Rembrandt lived and worked in. Audio tour (free). The outside is quaint and attractive and there are parts of the inside that represent how the place looked when he lived there. Some parts were being worked on (exhibits in the...More

We visited the museum by fault. We asked if the place had Rembrandt's paints and said "yes, this is the house and the museum". The house was interesting but the paintings not. There was translation and a girl who explained the usage of the colors....More

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!

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

1 hour should be fine but if you are the kind of person who likes to read the exhibit descriptions plan for a longer visit. Try the free audio tour it's worth every penny! ;) Also, this museum is free as part of the "I... More
