  • I went to the Museum in February. The artist's home was typical of the time and place of a narrow and high. On the ground floor were the rooms on the first floor of the home care, public spaces and still higher up in the artist's profession include spaces or Studio and the students ' work areas. The students were manufactured by the preparations for the start of the master's work and goals were, in addition, that made their own harjoituksiaan. The top floor was also a floating exhibition. The artist's work-related materials were interesting sense: stuffed animals, fabrics, sculptures and objects. From the drawings and the works of Rembrandt himself was also the eye of ilona. The 16th-century sense of the atmosphere, which I bet there was also the artist's self when painting, the singing of light whenever the Windows in the room. Rembrandt's son Titus was born and his wife Saskia died in the Museum in the House. Later, he lived in a common law marriage are still in the same building with his servant. Until bankruptcy forced the Rembrandt's change to a cheaper place. Today, this home is subsequently on the basis of the items that were acquired from the back. The Museum had a lot of school groups, which significantly disrupted the trial. In addition, I did not know, that got a pass in one direction only, i.e. from upstairs we went out for a second. You should, therefore, at once to look at and consider. The entrance fee was 13 million and included an audio commentary.

  • Very nice museum and a must visit when in Amsterdam. Also the etch making demonstration is very nice. Visited while the late Rembrandt pupils exhibition took place. Inforgetable and still take many tourists here.
  • The house displays some of the best paintings from Rembrandt's collection. History goes back to 17th centaury. The place is worth to visit
  • Very well preserved museum makes you feel you are looking over Rembrant's shoulder as he works in his studio.
  • Anyone in Amsterdam has to go here. The former house of Rembrandt crammed with his paintings and decorated as it would have looked like. Much smaller museum than all the others but the size of the collection makes it worthwhile. Get the audio guide, it really enhances the experience.
  • Very nice museum, you get to visit Rembrandt's house, his workshop, where he did his engravings. There is also an engraving presentation on the second floor, which was very nice to see. The entrance is free with the I Amsterdam card.
