The Rembrandthuis Museum is where the famous painter established his own studios here in Amsterdam, and lived with his family from 1639 to 1658.
He eventually left after declaring bankruptcy, and the home has been restored with approximations of it’s original furnishings based on an inventory of his possessions from that time.
Most of the building is devoted to his daily life from the time, and is of course, filled with paintings and art.
Part two of the museum is the new museum wing, where you will find exhibition rooms. The museum shop, the entrance to the museum café, the auditorium and the Rembrandt Information Centre are also located in the new wing.
On the fifth floor is the Rembrandt Information Center, where you can research on DC-rom, in books and other publications. By appointment only.
Open daily from 10 am to 5 pm, except Sundays and holidays when they open from 1 pm to 5 pm.
Admission is 7 euros for adults, children under age 6 are free, 6 to 15 1.50 euros.
Easily reached from the Waterlooplein or the Dam Square.
