Nice collection of Rembrandt and his students. Cool demonstration on mineral grinded color and copper stencil for printing technique for the 17th century. A very interesting and delightful experience we had .

We were expecting there to be more of a collection of Rembrandt's work, but there is very little. This is about how he lived in this house. It was still interesting and great to have free recording to take round. Lots of tight stairs to get round

It is an extra ordinary feeling, walking around in the rooms were Rembrandt - the greatest Dutch painter - ones lived and painted. The artifacts and demonstrations make it come to live even more.

I loved seeing the Rambrandt house and listening to the guided tour. My favorite part was the room with all of the bones, shells, and artifacts that he used to practice and also the studio spaces. I loved the smell on Linseed oil in those rooms.

When I saw the size of this museum, I didn't expect it would be much of a tour, nor take too long. I was very pleasantly pleased, and would highly recommend it to anyone. Note that there is climbing stairs, and it is not handicap friendly. The museum also has very interesting speakers and tours in the various rooms. It... More

Stunning house in original style with cozy (but cramped) box beds, beautiful paintings, an informative video, and amazing studio spaces used by Rembrandt and his pupils. We were able to assist a printmaking demonstration, which taught us a lot about different ways of engraving the metal. The video taught us more about Rembrandt's artistic and political evolution later in his... More

Interesting place to visit. As usual the old objects tells you more about a person or an age than many books and art pieces. The house is rebuilt but the furniture is original. It goes on for several stories. Each with its specificity. Entrance fee is not proportionate. You pay over 15 euros for a 15 minutes experience. Too much.

It was very interesting. The museum gives a good overview of his work, his life and his students. there is also the possibility to watch the process of producing those prints.

A video screening at the beginning of the visit, though longish, is well worth its time as it is well presented, informative and prepares the visitor for things to look out for, as well as putting one in the picture (pun intended)

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighbourhood Profile
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 oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
