  • Rembrandt's House is located in the eastern part of the city of Amsterdam near the block red light district. The House is very well preserved and original. I advise you to take an audio guide that is free of charge. In it is a Rembrandt lived with his wife Saskia, his son Titus, and lived until he was bankrupt. Open House starts from the kitchen which is generally considered the heart of the House. In addition to the fireplace, dishwasher, the original fountain and tronožnih Chair, there's the bed where she slept with Cook. On the first floor was a salon in which Rembrandt received guests, its working and bedroom, as well as the corner where he was designing their graphics. On the second floor were his atelier, where they stand exposed his palette with colors, and there is a room in which he spelled out all his wealth that is carefully collected. On the third floor has trained his disciples that he was teaching how to crossing out and so they learn the basics of painting. He was 40 and it was his extra money. There are exposed and its graphics that take turns on for a few months that were preserved from the light of damages. At the end of the tours do not forget to leave your email address to which you send the content of your visit-a large number of interesting and educational filmčića.

  • The staging of Rembrandt’s House was very well considered and very detailed. It’s a small musuem so best to go during off-peak times as it can get a little crowded. If you can, do attend the 2 live demonstrations of pigment/paint making & print making. These are complimentary with ticket entry but fill up fast as there is a 15 person maximum capacity for the demonstration sessions. Just wait hear the demonstration rooms before the next session starts.
  • Humbling to stand in the studio looking at an easel oriented such to just perfectly capture the sun from the north facing windows and see the canvas illuminated in the way that allowed Rembrandt to harness light as he so masterfully did. The building is amazing to see. Well preserved inside and out. Two small paintings attributed to Rembrandt. A handful of tiny sketches and 2 etchings. Daily demonstrations on how the artist printed from etchings and mixed his paints.
  • Loved this!! The thought of standing places to ponder as Rembrandt did... his bedroom, studio, welcoming foyer... very cool! Amazing how well they have recreated the entire home!!! Be aware, NOT that you're doing anything wrong, but the museum attendants follow you around EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. I totally get it, watch out for what a crazy guest might do... but, for the price, I was there to reminisce about a famous artist not graffiti the kitchen. I would sometimes find myself looking at something deep in thought on history only to have my gaze met suddenly across the room by an employee, a little unnerving...
  • Definitely worth the price of admission. Walking through the 17th century house where Rembrandt lived, worked, and taught students, you could feel the history. Taking the self-guided audio tour didn't cost anything extra, is in dozens of languages, and certainly added to the experience. Also watching a live demonstration of how pigments where made to make different colored paints was quite interesting. One of the better museums in Amsterdam!
  • I wanted to book an educational visit in May, so I sent an email in January. It took them weeks to answer and I had to send a reminder in order to get a reply. This happened two times. Finally they gave me two booking options on 16 March. I immediately answered their email (within 10 minutes). Yesterday they let me know we had to come later because another group had booked the visit. This isn't possible since I started to organise my trip well in advance and I have booked other activities. I'm extremely disappointed because I would have loved to share this nice museum with my students. Never experienced such amateurism!
