The guidebook said it opened at 9, but it is 10 am. The line goes quickly. You see a film and then go through the house, floor by floor. It means steps. It is not handicapped accessible accept in about half the site. There are...More

This was one of my husbands and my favorite museums. The way the rooms were set up made you feel like you were in the 1500s. Great to see where the artists began their paintings and the many sketches to get to the final product....More

Enjoyed this visit more than anticipated. You get a reall feel for the house as it must have been when Rembrandt resided here. The printing demonstration was excellent and well worth taking time to queue for a little while.

The museum has done an excellent job of showcasing Rembrandt's Amsterdam and his life as an artist and family man. I especially enjoyed the demonstrations of mixing paint and the etching process.

This was so much more than we expected. An impressive house but what made it were the two demonstrations we saw: first etching and printing, which was fascinating and well explained and then the studio demonstration of the origins of the paints and how they...More

What a cool museum: it offers you the chance to experience Rembrandt at work as you learn all about the process of etching. Interesting for children as well! Pretty amazing to walk around Rembrandts house as well.

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

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
