Lectures & Events

The Rembrandt House Museum hosts fun and in-depth events throughout the year for young and old. On this page you can find our calendar.


Exclusively for children from 8 years old

Have your portrait taken in the style of Rembrandt during the autumn holiday break. Who would you have been in the seventeenth century? A princess, a magician or maybe a sun king? Take a dive in Rembrandt’s dress-up box, choose the hat that suits you best and experiment with the lighting. It’s like being in Rembrandt’s studio. Photographer Marije van der Hoeven made the photo series ‘Hat On For Rembrandt’ together with primary school children in Amsterdam, which is now part of the exhibition Hello Rembrandt! / Hat On For Rembrandt. Especially for this workshop, Marije van der Hoeven is coming to the museum to take your picture too. The photo will be sent to you digitally afterwards.

This workshop lasts one hour and is suitable for children from 8 years old. There is room for 8 children per session. Adults cannot participate in the workshop; adults are of course welcome to visit The Rembrandt House Museum in the meantime (after having purchased an entrance ticket).
