For twenty years the Netherlands’ greatest artist lived and worked in this impressive building in the heart of Amsterdam, now a museum. The Rembrandt House Museum gives visitors a complete Rembrandt experience. With a seventeenth-century inventory as a guide, the house has been meticulously refurbished with furniture, art and objects from that time. The museum has an almost complete collection of Rembrandt etchings and stages inspiring exhibitions about Rembrandt, his predecessors, contemporaries and pupils. Come and meet him in his own home!
Rembrandt was at the height of his fame when he moved into this house with his beloved Saskia Uylenburgh. He mixed in the highest circles and was awarded the most prestigious commissions by merchants, patricians and clergymen. It was a turbulent time in the house, where bad times followed good in quick succession. The Night Watch was painted in the house.
Included in your ticket is the entrance to the museum and exhibition rooms, a free audio guide in 10 languages and free daily demonstrations/workshops.
