This house is fascinating if you love art. It was his home so you get to see the usual rooms of a house but the highlights for me are Rembrant's studio and also his etchings. This museum is well worth a visit.

The house was sold when he went bankrupt, so there was an inventory, allowing the rooms to be furnished authentically. His studio is used for a live demonstration of painting techniques of the times. Many of his etchings and a few of his paintings are on display. fascinating!

We loved this museum and skipped the line by purchasing The Museumcart. Go to one of the less popular museums in late afternoon and you can literally walk up and purchases a Museumkart. It will save you money if you plan on being in Amsterdam for any length of time. Use it for this museum, and many others. Lots to... More

Spent a very interesting and enjoyable two hours here which included two excellent talks/demonstrations (in English) of how Rembrandt made his etchings and how this painting materials were created. The demonstrations we saw started at 2.40 and 3.00 respectively but we only came across them by chance during our tour of the house - if they were advertised at the... More

If you are any fan or have any interest in Rembrand, this is a place to visit. The docents are great, the period actors are wonderful, and explain in various languages.

I learned a lot about the painter here. The home also has demonstrations showing how Rembrandt made his paints. The tour was excellent.

This was our first trip to Amsterdam and having the Rembrandt experience was on our list of things to do. We were not disappointed with this quirky little multi storey house filled with great pieces of artwork, some unfinished pieces were included in the display. Such an exceptional talent. I was very impressed. We got our tickets in advance as... More

This is quite a cool museum to visit if you don't have very much time. Audioguides are free and you pick them up downstairs. There are three floors so you get to see the main rooms of the house as well as the remainder of his collections (for example animal skulls, taxidermy and some small statues). Throughout the house are... More

Despite being to Amsterdam several times this time was my first visiting Rembrandt Huis. I was not disappointed. The house itself is lovely and they have managed to recreating how it would have looked in his prime. The works displayed are beautiful and the free audio tour helped explain them in detail. A free film at the beginning of his... More

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.
