We stumbled into this museum and really loved it. It was a good mix of art, architecture and history.

This is a fairly benign museum. There aren't many of rembradts actual works but there are some. The highlight of the self-guided tour was the collection of etchings at the end. I highly recommend bringing a pair of earphones with you when you visit as...More

This was a very nice museum/house. There are video guides available in several languages. It is worth seeing.

I enjoyed the museum's attempts to illustrate Rembrandt's work environment and process, but I cut short my visit to this museum because it was just too crowded; some of the rooms are quite small and can be claustrophobic if full of people. I also found...More

The taxi drivers DO know where this is....it looks like a museum but it is the actual house as a museum. Step back to the days when Rembrandt walked on these floors, stayed in these unusual beds and entertained and mentored students. Really breathtaking and...More

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

Hi all, Do you recommend that we book the tickets in advance? Are the line and the queue crazy long like Ann Frank's and Van Gogh? Wanted to see I can purchase the Rembrandt House the day of instead of buying in advance since we are not sure about our schedule. Thanks in advance for your tip!

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

No. The Rijksmuseum has a good display though.
Hi, I'm visiting Amsterdam in September and plan to visit the Rembrandt House. Can you tell me about how long you need at the museum? Would it be more than 2 hours? We are also going to the Van Gogh museum that day and would like to plan accordingly. Thanks! Claudia
