Museum het Rembrandthuis

Museum het Rembrandtshuis in Amsterdam is located in the house where Rembrandt lived between 1639 and 1658. It holds a collection of Rembrandt’s etchings, drawings, and copperplates. When you walk through the house you can see demonstrations of how these were created.

The house is portrayed as it was at the time Rembrandt lived there. Take a journey back in history and see how people lived 400 years ago. The ground floor of the museum is set up like it was during the life of the famous painter and art dealer. See the small bed that Rembrandt would have slept in sitting up as was customary at the time. As was common at the time, Rembrandt also used his home as his place of business. Art buyers and dealers met in his living room to purchase paintings that are now priceless treasures displayed in museums around the world.
