Expert review of Museum Het Rembrandthuis

Outstanding etchings and recreated rooms in the house where Rembrandt once lived.

In 1656, Rembrandt went bankrupt, and had to sell off most of his possessions. The inventory drawn up at the time has been used to re-furnish the house where he lived between 1639 and 1658, as it might have looked then. One room is full of an eclectic mix of artefacts – classical busts, turtle shells, coral, spears – such as those that Rembrandt collected to use for copying into his paintings. For me, however, the highlight of the Rembrandt House Museum is the display of the artist's exquisite etchings in two rooms at the top of the house. Unlike in Amsterdam's big art museums, you may have them all to yourself.

Price advice: 

9 euros; children aged 6-17 2.50 euros; under 6s, and those with I amsterdam Card and Museumkaart free.

Expert tips: 
The entrance fee includes the museum's audio guide.
