Lots of interetsing information, most rooms returned to how they would have been in Rembrandts time. Not so interetsed in the art gallery showing other artists but overall very interesting visit.

Amsterdam is an old, historic and culturally significant city. Unless you have a lot of time to spend there, you probably like we did have to pick what you think will best represent the things that will reveal to you the Amsterdam you want to know. In the limited time we had, we selected the Rembrandt House as a window... More

The Rembrandt house was one of the most interesting places we visited in Amsterdam. The original house where Rembrandt lived it is full of fascinating furniture and decor and laid out exactly as it was when Rembrandt would have lived there. It is a true museum house detailing information about Rembrandt's life and works as well as providing live demonstrations... More

If you ever wanted to know how a master lived, that is the place to go. I was not only fascinated by the paint making process, but also by the collection of items he held in his house. It is absolutely worth the visit. I would recommend checking out the times when they have demonstrations, specially if you are coming... More

Walking through the place Rembrandt lived, worked and taught is an interesting way to spend some time while visiting Amsterdam. With the art, furnishings and history, there is something for everyone.

Audioguide was excellent. Pleasant surprise that non flash photos were allowed. The demonstrations of print making and mixing paints were really interesting.

We thoroughly enjoyed the house and the different paintings especially the ones painted by Rembrandt. The audio apparatus given to us to listen to the different pieces of information was such old technology which greatly distracted from the information given. The sound was awful - not loud enough and the digits display worked but you had to enter them over... More

Into the man and his style. Good to see such a lovely (300 year) old house and how the master worked and loved. Only disappointment is there are no Rembrandt paintings....not even one or two lesser ones. Still worth a visit

Thank Turtle5954

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.
