Enjoyed the house - has a real sense of age. His two studios are fabulous and it's great to see how the house operated both as a residence and as a business. The free audio tour is good, too. However, if time is limited, there are much, much better places to visit.

There is nothing exceptional about the house or the furnishings but if you go it's all about the studio. A very interesting artist and if you enjoy getting to know the artist a little better, have a tour.

Pricy but worth it! The highlight was the painter explaining all about Rembrandt's techniques,colors etc. I would wish there would be more paintings of the artist himself

This is something of interest to artists and those who like to know about artists. The free audio tour provides information for both adults and children. This is a small museum that highlights Rembrandt's life and shows where he lived and created some of his works. The glimpse into how he conducted his business as an artists and as a... More

You will see living and working rooms of artist and his students. Even almost everything were sold after Rembrandt`s bankruptcy and house had been changed & restored, you can feel and understand the level of income of successful painter. Don't miss 2 perfect small show and master-classes (just wait 5 minutes ahead the start time). One is about colors and... More

Loved the audio guide included in the price. You could move around at your own pace and look at the exhibits. Also loved the free lockers where you could lock away your coat, bags, and anything else you didn't want to carry. The etching demonstration was a revelation.

First I thought the fee was a bit high but afterwards thought it was worth it. We had a headset and by that could walk in our own pace switching on the guide in our earphones for each new room.

Am not a huge Rembrandt fan, but enjoyed the visit to his house and studio. Loved the outside of the building. I especially like the bed boxes in the house. Didn't take too long to stop by and go through.

The house has been returned to the 1600's in it's setting and decoration. The included walking tour brings you back to that time and describes the life very well Although there is art there from the period it is not a major museum in terms of the art, like the Rijks or van Gogh, but the included audio tour does...

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.
