The Rembrandt House Museum, Amsterdam Reviews - Write a Review
Very informative with varied and interesting audio tour. Pros: audio tour included in entry; very friendly and helpful staff; free locker and cloak room; well preserved rooms show intimate life of Rembrandt; exhibit pieces together logically and smoothly; excellent gift shop with wide price range so there's something for everyone; bonus exhibit of apprentices who progressed to their own work. Cons: beware there are lots of stairs so may be difficult for some guests.
They say it's as close as you can ever get to Rembrandt, I wholeheartedly agree. It left me feeling inspired and ready to step up to my easel. Very friendly staff, great free demonstrations, a must do visit for art lovers.
Really nice to see the house in which Rembrandt was working for the better part of his artistic career. Worth to see, really puts it in perspective. As you are walking through the rooms of the house, you get to experience the lavish lifestyle of a prominent artist in the 17th century. The house is really impressive.
Really cool experience, especially for a museum. Google maps showed it was busier than usual, and yet we didn't have to wait in any lines, so that combined with the very reasonable entry fee was the first win. Took a minute to get the hang of the (free) audio guide system...it operates like a remote control you point at a little target on the wall to hear narration for each room/exhibit area. Really cool to hear the history, which I knew none of previously, and to walk through each room meticulously restored to look exactly as they did at the time when Rembrandt was forced to sell the home due to his bankruptcy. Stand in his studio, try the manual paint making process that apprentices did for him on a daily basis, check out his outrageous collection of ancient artifacts from around the world in his "cabinet" room, and admire all kinds of art, while immersing yourself in Rembrandt's life and story. I'm not into traditional art museums at all, and my husband is into them, so this was a great compromise that was cool and interactive enough for me, while still offering enough of the culture and art works my husband enjoys in museums.
An interesting museum of the life and work of Rembrandt, housed within the very studio from which he worked centuries ago. Admission price is lower than many of the other major museums in Amsterdam, so well worth the visit if you don't want to fork out an outrageous 17.50 at the Rejksmuseum.
