Nowhere in the world do you come closer to Rembrandt than in The Rembrandt House Museum. We want to inspire the world with Rembrandt, his work and his life.

Meet Rembrandt in his own home.

Here, in the heart of Amsterdam, he lived and worked for nineteen years. The house where he started full of ambition, but which he had to leave due to financial problems.

Nearly 400 years later, The Rembrandt House Museum is the only museum in the world entirely dedicated to Rembrandt. Each room in Rembrandt’s house has its own story. Here he experienced joy and sorrow. Here he collected art and rarities from all over the world, educated his students and received his customers. Here he looked out over a rapidly changing city. Here he made his masterpieces. Here he became the greatest.

Step into the seventeenth century. Let yourself be surprised by Rembrandt’s life, his works of art and his perspective on the world around him. The museum owns almost all of Rembrandt’s etchings: a world-class collection. In surprising exhibitions you will discover Rembrandt’s work and his influence on his contemporaries, followers and contemporary artists. Get inspired by Rembrandt, the man and the maker, his home, his city and his time.

Welcome to The Rembrandt House Museum.
You can’t get any closer to Rembrandt than this.
