  • The museum was both informative and interesting. Good selection of art works and access to all areas in the original house was fantastic. We bought tickets in advance so no queue.  more »

  • This is another must-see in Amsterdam. It is very close to the center and can be done in less than two hours. The art is set in his home so you learn history as well as about his art. Make sure you get the audio tour, which is gratis. It's great! And also stop for the print making demo and learn about pigments in his studio.
  • 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.
  • Absolutely favorite museum in Amsterdam. I didn't really know exactly who Rembrandt was before coming, but museum was very organized and flowed well. Demonstrations really sold the place.
  • 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.
