This house where Rembrandt lived and worked is really worth seeing - his studio, paintings and living rooms are so atmospheric and give a much more intimate feel to the larger museums.

An eye opening experience of how the (now) famous lived so many years ago. The home has been beautifully maintained and has a lot of good information provided for each room so you can really understand how life was way back when Rembrandt was living...More

It was wonderful to experience Rembrandt's home and feel a little of what his life was like. Warning-like so many attractions in Europe, the house has lots of stairs, but where they lead is amazing! His home, studio, teaching areas, workshop collection, gallery--all were amazing...More

The Rembrandt House museum is much smaller than a regular museum but really fascinating to see the place one of the world's greatest artists lived and worked in -- many of his major works are in other museums in Amsterdam and around the world. Spent...More

Don't g to the Rembrandthuis looking for masterpieces. It's interesting to see where the great man worked his magic (for a time), but go to the Rijksmuseum if you want to see his work.

Pricey and boring.. so not worth the money. Very little paintings from the master himself but a whole gallery for his 2 pupils ... felt like I need to ask for my money back .. disappointed!

Beautiful and most historic house. Not much more to say than it's worth a visit most definitely. The house has been wonderfully restored.

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

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
