A genuine 17th century Amsterdam House, preserved as it was when Rembrandt lived and worked in it. He was obviously worth a bit of money, as there are 5 floors of spacious rooms, well appointed for their time. The highlight is the master's Studio, where...More

After seeing the Night Watch in the National Museum, it was a must for us to visit Rembrandt's house in person. The house is interestingly decorized and the audio guides were very helpful for us. Remember to ask for a student discount!

The fact that they have an audio guide that both adults and teens can use along with a separate guide that kids can use is fantastic. Our 10 yr old loved the fact she could make paint. The museum does an amazing job with demonstrations.

This is Rembrandts house and as such isn't that big. We went early to avoid the crowds, do the audiotour, it's very good and enhances the experience. Make sure you do all the rooms on each floor as they don't allow you to go back...More

It's the house of Rembrandt, it doesn't have any paintings, it's just his house and the.museum is about where he slept and where he painted, nothing more. A bit dull if u are there just for fun.

The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides
visitors with the chance to imagine the city that
Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house)
while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at
Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying
a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The
Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of
town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s

Hi all, Do you recommend that we book the tickets in advance? Are the line and the queue crazy long like Ann Frank's and Van Gogh? Wanted to see I can purchase the Rembrandt House the day of instead of buying in advance since we are not sure about our schedule. Thanks in advance for your tip!

You should be absolutely fine, especially if you go in the morning. The big hitters take pre-planning but these gems are pretty much walk in without too much queueing. This does depend on whether you come at peak holiday... More

No. The Rijksmuseum has a good display though.
Hi, I'm visiting Amsterdam in September and plan to visit the Rembrandt House. Can you tell me about how long you need at the museum? Would it be more than 2 hours? We are also going to the Van Gogh museum that day and would like to plan accordingly. Thanks! Claudia
