Rembrandt owned house that turned into a museum. It’s interesting but there was no paintings of him, if I’m no mistaken. But there were some original etchings though. Spare minimum 2 hours to enjoy it.

Amazing experience. The museum provides Chinese audio guide. Following the audio guide, I feel that I am really seeing Rembrandt was welcoming guests, drawing, and living in this house. Highly recommend.

The house of the most famous son of Amsterdam. Most of his works were hung in other grand museums; here his life is shown in his own house. One would get the gist of his life, how he lived and worked. The house illustrated this point very well wit.. Read more »

This is the house where Rembrandt lived between 1639 and 1658. It was restored once in 1911 and the second time in 1911. The house is now a museum, entry is charged, it's got 4 stories, but please keep in mind that there is no elevator and the s.. Read more »

This was a cool museum, in that it was his actual house and was furnished the way that it would have been when Rembrandt live there. There are not a lot of his paintings in the museum, but there are several of his original etchings and many reproduc.. Read more »

I had no idea Rembrandt led such an interesting life. The self-guided audio tour is great. You can do it independently without getting pushed along in a group. Also quite reasonably priced admission and close to good food.

If you expect to see millions of Rembrandt paintings this not the place for you. But if you want to step into his world and see how he lived than this place delivers! Cute little place and definitely worth the visit for Rembrandt lovers.
