The Rembrandt House Museum is located in the centre of Amsterdam. The artist purchased the house in 1639. He eventually lived here for almost twenty years.
The Rembrandt House Museum offers a vivid example of a rich man’s home in the 17th-century, during the Golden Age in Holland. Although Rembrandt died poor, he earned a lot of money during his lifetime.
Between 1639 and 1658, Rembrandt lived and worked in this splendid house in the heart of Amsterdam, now a museum. With the aid of a 17th-century inventory, the house was meticulously refurbished with furniture, works of art and objects from that time. Visit his studio, the old kitchen, his living room and art room full of inspiring objects, and imagine yourself back in the 17th-century. In the modern museum wing, you can admire works of Rembrandt and of other artists who were inspired by him. Some contemporary artists use the works of Rembrandt in an amazing way.
The museum holds an extraordinary collection of etchings by Rembrandt. Come and meet the Dutch master in his own home!
