  • I first had the opportunity of viewing Rembrandt's original paintings while at Muscat and when I and my husband decided to visit Amsterdam, this museum was on top of our TO-Do list! We had to walk thr...  more »
  • The visit allows not only know more about the artist if not also see how houses were at that time. We can see also original furniture, which would highlight the beds/wardrobe. Since at the time they slept sitting by fear to die and the bed was quite small. We can also see the Academy in the top in which he taught painting.

  • The self guided audio was great for the kids. It kept them engaged and they learned lots! It is not a big museum but we enjoyed the time there.  more »

  • 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.
