Rembrandt House Museum (Museum Het Rembrandthuis) Tours and Activities

star-5
17 Reviews
Rembrandt House Museum (Museum Het Rembrandthuis)
Located among the picturesque canal houses of central Amsterdam, the Rembrandt House Museum (Museum Het Rembrandthuis) pays tribute to the Dutch artist famous for such works as The Night Watch and The Storm on the Sea of Galilee. Today, Rembrandt’s former home is a museum dedicated to his life and works and features a nearly complete collection of his etchings.

The Basics
The Rembrandt House is a stop on many hop-on hop-off tours of Amsterdam. Visitors can tour the well-preserved home and studio of the painter and printmaker and browse the original etchings, drawing, and paintings where he created them. For a deeper exploration into Rembrandt’s works, book a private tour of the museum, which may also include other Amsterdam sites integral to his life. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Rembrandt House is a must-see for art history buffs.
  • Purchase admission tickets ahead of time to avoid long lines. 
  • To save on museum admissions in Amsterdam, consider booking a city pass for admission and discounts to several Amsterdam-area attractions.   

How to Get There
The Rembrandt House is located in the heart of Amsterdam, near Waterlooplein square. Easily reached on foot, the museum is only a 15-minute walk from Amsterdam’s Central Station. You can also take tram line 51, 53, or 54 to the Nieuwmarkt stop.

When to Get There
The Rembrandt House is open daily. It’s a very popular tourist attraction, so visit first thing in the morning to avoid the crowds. Also consider booking admission and tours ahead of time to avoid spending time in lines. 

Rembrandt House Paintings
The Rembrandt House displays the artist’s studio and furnishings and many of his etchings and drafts, but none of his famous works. Visitors interested in seeing Rembrandt’s best-known paintings should visit Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum. The Rembrandt House Museum does own a collection of paintings by Rembrandt’s teacher, Pieter Lastman, and by Pre-Rembrandtists, painters working in Amsterdam just prior to Rembrandt’s arrival in 1631.
