Rembrandt House Museum, Amsterdam

This museum in Amsterdam is in the house where Rembrandt lived for nearly twenty years from 1639 to 1656. The collection at the house does include some of Rembrandt’s etchings and paintings but the interior is reconstructed rather than original and the belongings in the house are also reconstructions based on what Rembrandt had to auction when he went bankrupt in 1656.

The opportunity to walk around a house in Amsterdam regardless of who lived there was too good to be missed and the audio guide was nicely done – at this and other places I visited you scan your guide over a designated spot outside the room to hear the audio.

I can’t claim to be a particular Rembrandt fan but it was still an interesting museum to explore and I did enjoy the exhibit on two newly rediscovered paintings which traced how the experts had attributed them to Rembrandt and his students.
