Step into the World of Rembrandt
Rembrandt van Rijn – one of the most popular artists of the Netherlands. His paintings are famous and well known all over the world, yet do you know how the Dutch master lived? Visit the museum and follow in his footsteps. The artist bought the house, which is located in the middle of Amsterdam, in 1639 and lived there for almost twenty years.
The Rembrandt house museum is completely decorated as if you were walking through the house of a rich man in the Golden Age of Holland, the 17th century. Even though Rembrandt died poor, during his lifetime he earned a lot of money, painting portraits of the rich merchants of the city.
The museum holds an extraordinary collection of etchings by Rembrandt, but also has a lot of works by artists who were inspired by Rembrandt. Some contemporary artists use the works of Rembrandt in an amazing way, come and see it for yourself!
