Interesting place with many facts and details about the man, his life and works. They have tried to create what it was with furniture and decor. If I am to be critical it is a little expensive for a small museum.

Painter Rembrandt lived and worked in the house between 1639 and 1656. The 17th-century interior has been reconstructed. The collection contains Rembrandt's etchings and paintings of his contemporaries.

A quite engaging historical house museum, very well made and presented, a lot to see. There are audio guides with which visitors can go through the museum at their own pace. Highly recommended for anyone interested in history made alive!

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
