Amsterdam: Rembrandt House Museum Entrance Ticket
- Valid: 1 day
- Optional audio guide
I really enjoyed this museum. I had read a bit about Rembrandt before I went, and I think that's what made the visit so interesting. I liked the audioguide, and also the fact that I could get the audioguide on e-mail to listen to when I came home. The stairs in the house are very narrow, but it was not crowded when I was there, so it was fine. But it's no place for those with walking disabilities. The house is beautiful, and I especially liked the Cabinet - what a collector of rare items Rembrandt was! There were nice human guides in the rooms as well, and they answered any questions we had. Definitely a place worth visiting if you're interested in architecture, art and history. I ordered the tickets online, but still had to stand in queue to show the tickets, so not especially much time saved. But there were no crowd, so there was not a long wait to get in. I was there on a Friday about 12.30 pm.
If you are interested in the backstory to Rembrandt, this is the place to be. Although, check as it is I mportant to show up at the times posted for the demonstrations. Once you go through the exhibit there’s no way back to the first floor where the etching was taking place,,,,you can only walk up the stairs. Otherwise we would have had to wait 45 minutes in the hallway for the next session. Luckily, we ended up at the “How paint colors are made.” Demonstration! The docent was fantastic, knowledgeable and took time to engage the crowd as well as answer the many questions that were asked in several different languages. She, gets our 5 star rating. Equally as essential is the free audio guide to the museum.
Was great. There are a lots stairs in a spiral staircase which is quite dark which my parents struggled a bit with. The attenders on each floor did give out foldable chairs though.
Very atmospheric house . So interesting to see where Rembrandt lived and painted. Excellent talk by the gentlemen explaining how the pigments for his paints were made.
The cruise would’ve been better if the weather was good. Unfortunately it was raining heavily so we didn’t get too see as much as we wished to.
