We really enjoyed our visit. Being in the house Rembrandt and his family lived in for about 20 years until he went bankrupt was in itself interesting. Seeing how he created plates for etching and how painfully tedious it was during that time period to...More

Interesting to see Rembrandt's studio/shop/home before seeing his paintings in the Rijksmuseum. Visit when the demonstrations of etching and paint mixing are taking place as this enhances the experience.

Plantage & the East
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
