Visit Rembrandt's house

Rembrandt lived and worked between 1639 and 1658 in this monumental building in the heart of Amsterdam, which is now a museum. Based on an inventory from the seventeenth century, the house has been meticulously refurbished with furniture, art and objects from that time. Visit his studio, the old kitchen and living room and imagine yourself in the seventeenth century.

The old house

In the only surviving home and studio of the famous painter Rembrandt van Rijn, you will get to know the master personally. The house tells the story of Rembrandt, the man, the artist, the teacher, the collector, the entrepreneur and the Amsterdammer.


The Rembrandt House has been officially a museum since 1911 and has an almost complete collection of Rembrandt etchings. These are regularly displayed in changing exhibitions in the modern museum wing. Here you will discover work by Rembrandts himself, his predecessors, contemporaries and students. In addition, you regularly see work by contemporary artists who were inspired by Rembrandt's work.
