  • One of my favorite museums in the city. It's small and intimate, the reconstruction of Rembrandt's house is gorgeous and it feels like he could walk in any moment. But the highlight is the collection of etches that is located in the attic.
  • Stepping into the home of the master. It was a profoundly moving experience for me because I'm an artist. There are live demonstrations of various art techniques that Rembrandt used which are delightful and informative. Best gift shop ever.
  • Wonderful museum with demonstrations of the etching and paint-making processes used by Rembrandt. Made me see some of the paintings in the Rijksmuseum in a new light.
  • This is a very well designed, user friendly museum with helpful officers. Rembrandt's freaky collection is strongly recommended.
  • Wonderful place. It's less focused on Rembrandt's paintings and more on how he lived back in the day. The audio guide is excellent and the experience was really fun.
