I visited this museum because I'm interested in Rembrandt and his work. It was interesting to see his house and how he lived, but I guess somehow I expected a bit more. It wasn't too big, so we didn't spend a lot of time there.

My wife and I visited the Rembrandthuis using the I AM card. Unfortunately we visited on a day when there were no practical demos so perhaps not as good as it would normally be. The stairs up are spiral and very narrow - so be...More

Even though it was the off season, the house was pretty crowded with visitors. There were two rooms where demonstrations were provided showing how paint was made and prints from etchings. Be prepared to climb narrow staircases.

We were in,y able to visit his house but it was fascinating, I lived it. The museum was closed for reorganisation though. The house is big bit lots of steps but there is a lift. Well worth a visit

Aside from Rembrandt paintings etc., it is a very old house with some furniture and other items from olden time. Radio guide with several languages, including Russian, helps a lot. Highly recommend!

Rembrantdhuis is a really good way to follow up on a visit to the Rijksmuseum. After seeing his paintings there, the Rembrandtshuis will give you a picture of how he actually lived. Generally, no good comes of bankruptcy. Rembrandt is an exception, as it gave...More

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
