The impressive building found within the heart of Amsterdam was once home and a workshop for the renowned and greatest artist from the Netherlands Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn. Now a museum, the Rembrandt House Museum has been refurbished with an array of furniture, art and objects from that time period, which creates the perfect seventeenth century atmosphere.

 

The museum also provides their visitors with an almost exhaustive collection of his etchings plus holds inspiring exhibitions about Rembrandt himself, his predecessors that inspired him, the contemporaries and his pupils. Contemporary artists now get the chance to hold exhibitions here, it is the perfect venue for pieces of artwork to be displayed when it is so heavily influenced and inspired by the work of Rembrandt himself.

The museum gives you the chance to really get to know Rembrandt, not just as the great artist he is known to be, but as a teacher, entrepreneur, collector and the more personal traits simply as Rembrandt the Amsterdammer. Delve into his home and leave not only knowing more about him, but leave having learnt more about the city he thrived in.

Guided tours are available which need to be booked 2 weeks before arrival.

  • The Night Watch is one of Rembrandt's most famous and largest paintings (over 14 feet long and nearly 12 feet tall), it is currently displayed at the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam for people to visit
  • He was a big spender and particularly liked collecting art and other unusual objects. You can come and witness Rembrandt's collective habits by visiting The Cabinet within the house.

Despite his decline in income at the start of the 1640's, he still continued his collection.
