His house is filled with paintings and explanations of what each room was used for and how and you can therefore get a real sense of how he lived. There are a lot of stairs so be aware of this

Rembrandt lived here for many yrs before his became a bankrupt and this house shows him as artist, art dealer and art teacher. You will appreciate his boxed bed, students'art, nude drawings. However his most famous painting 'the Night watch ' is displayed at Rijksmuseum

Seeing this house was very interesting. The building itself is atmospheric, the introductory film and paint materials talk were instructive, as was the audio guide. Definitely worth a visit.

Staff are unhelpful and miserable .. This put a bit of a dampener in the museum ..Rembrandt would have fired them or used them as models

a very interesting old house with many helpfull explanations. I liked very much the life guided tour , they showed the technique of painting, producing colours and stamping during Rembrandts time !

I thought the best part of the musuem was the introductory video. The curator was passionate about the subject. It was fun to hear him talk about paintings we had seen earlier in the day at the Rijksmuseum. .

I thoroughly enjoyed visiting this house. It was a very interesting visit and shows all about how Rembrandt would have lived. Our daughter got to have a go at making paint just how Rembrandt would have done, including where he would have done his art...More

An interesting insight into the man and how he honed his skill, or should I say art ! Whilst we weren't able to catch one them are also some displays and talks around his painting style and techniques.

You get a good feel for how the painter and his students lived and worked. Small but interesting building with artefacts as they had been, including beds in cupboards.

Firstly, this is not a Museum of his famous paintings, it is his home/studio. It gives a great insight into how he and people of the time lived. There is a large amount of art to see as well as his possessions. There is also...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
