  • This is a very, very, well curated museum. Do NOT miss the print-making and paint-making lectures, both run by the most charming and knowledgeable people who clearly love to impart their knowledge...  more »
  • A great way to see what it looks like inside one of these old houses. The beds were intriguing. A word of caution, winding steep and narrow staircase. His studio was beautiful. But to be honest I am.....  more »
  • Very enjoyable look into the life and work of one of the greats. Experience the home and work life of Rembrandt including updated educational display on technology used to better understand his work.....  more »

  • History unbelievable. I loved the Netherlands. Friendly and professional at hotels. On tour and in the city itself. The Rembrandt House Museum reminded me so much of Cape Town. They left a lasting impression on our past. Art Culture and Cuisine. Wine. You could just walk around there on your own time.
  • Such a fascinating museum. The house itself is exquisite. But what I love the most is how they're dissecting the world behind and inside various Rembrandt's paintings and etchings throughout the exhibition. A great combination between arts and science. The activity on the second floor is also interesting. The must in A'dam!
  • Surprisingly techie... R was on the leading edge in his day - he'd have loved the technology being flung at him now... eye-watering in all the right ways
  • Lovely museum! Worth the time and money. We accidentally started listening to the kids' tour, and it was SO much better/more engaging than the dry "adult" one. As a matter of fact, I liked this version of the audio tour so much that I'd recommend other museums follow suit. There were plenty of other places where I wished the similar narrative slant was used to convey the information like this one did. Either way, really cool place and highly recommended.
  • What an experience! I enjoyed it very much: from the architecture, to the phenomenal tour explaining everything Rembrandt...I can't believe I was the very house he lived in this afternoon! Awesome!
