Once in Amsterdam, one of the many museums you can't miss is the Rembrandt House. Famous artist Rembrandt lived and worked in this beautiful and monumental house between 1639 and 1658.
It has carefully been redecorated with furniture, art and objects dating from the 17th century. In the Rembrandt House there are daily demonstrations of etching and paint preparation that show you the way he worked in that period of time. Visitors will also have the opportunity to see and participate in a workshop that is offered at no additional cost: they will do their own etching in Rembrandt’s student studio (Leerlingenatelier). The Rembrandt House owns the virtually complete and world famous collection of Rembrandt’s etchings.
There are frequent temporary exhibitions showing work of predecessors and contemporaries, and modern and current works of art in the modern wing of the museum.
