  • Lovely museum. You will have to pay a few euros to get in, but it is worth it. The audio guides work nicely: you just point at a tag by the entrance of each room to activate them, no faffing with the buttons. The explanations are thorough but not too lengthy, and they are very interesting. We did the whole thing in about 40 minutes, but you could spend longer buy looking at the galleries for longer.
  • Home restored and furnished based on historic documents and paintings. Live, highly informative demonstrations. Audio guide included in admission price. Included in museum pass. Highly recommend.
  • We had a great visit exploring the house. Has a contemporary expo on top floor. Nice gift shop. Elevator. Wardrobe, toilets.
  • Very nice place. Full of art and in the same time full of history, daily life of artists from the past in Nederlands. If you are interested about old art definitly should go there :)
  • Beautiful nice compact place where one can get a glimpse of the Dutch Master's life. Highly recommended to stay for the two live demonstrations, one on each floor, one on printing technique that Rembrandt used and the next on inks/paints. Kudos to the two very passionate and knowledgable speakers. I completely enjoyed myself with their presentations. Not wheelchair or pram friendly, do note.
