I didn't want to go at first because I'm not into art but I'm so glad I did. I enjoyed it. There is free audio (with purchase of your ticket) in your language. You move through at your leisure and the audio has great explanation...More

House more or less as he lived in it. Very interesting and well worth a visit. Easy to find, and, although on several levels, there are lifts!

We really felt like we could picture Rembrandt, his family, and his students in this wonderful museum. The demonstration of his creative process for etchings was excellent as was the discussion/demonstration about paints and pigments.

The house has been put back to it's original status including the easel and Rembrant's massive collection of artifacts. You get a great perspective of what life was like during that period.

The first part of the museum is located in the house in which Rembrandt lived and worked, with furnishings from the period, based on the inventory made when he went bankrupt and his property was auctioned off (bad for him, good for us.) The highlights...More

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
