  • Lots of rooms over a few floors. The most interesting for me was the room of "things" that an artist collected to copy from (replica busts of Romans, exotica, animals, all sorts that might end up in a...  more »
  • Very well set, one gets the impression that the painter himself will walk through the door at any moment. A trip to the past. We love!

  • An amazing experience. The audio tour was fantastic and guided us through the multiple levels of his iconic house. The tour is detailed and describes lots of little details that I previously didn’t know. There was also a ‘talk’ about how Rembrandt painted his pictures which was fascinating. To top it off the house had many of his pieces including a small gallery at the top level. Amazing!
  • Nice little museum filled with details about Rembrandt and a day in his shoes. It even includes a free audio tour. The house is pretty big, each room is special in it's own way and the audio tour does a great job at describing it. The museum also has a nice gift shop and locker room to store your stuff.
  • Great atmospheric place and very well done exhibition. I also was lucky to watch a presentation on the colours and oil paint preparation in the times of Rembrandt. They also have a presentation on graphics, but I missed it. Highly recommended!
  • Very interesting. We enjoyed the free audio tour and the little demonstrations going on throughout the museum. The audio tour is self guided. There are little plaques by every room to which you hold the listening device which in turn will play the correct information in your pre selected language. We went on a Sunday morning and it wasn't particularly busy which was a good thing as space is rather limited (as to be expected in an old building). The museum is really well maintained, staff were very friendly.
  • Very educational and informative museum. Afforadably priced entry, and the audio tour is very helpful! It does not take very long to go through, and is definitely well worth a visit! It's also very close to many other museums, so you can visit a few in the same day if you'd like!
