The Rembrandt House Museum is expecting to end the year 2017 with over 265.000 visitors, an increase of 7%.
Last year was already a very successful year with 249.000 visitors, and throughout 2017 our visitors count grew steadily and noticeably. The museum board assigns this success to the exhibitions:Rembrandt’s First Paintings. The Four Senses; Glenn Brown – Rembrandt. After Life; Rembrandt and Jan Six. The Etching and the Friendship, and the current successful duo-exhibition with the Amsterdam Museum: Ferdinand Bol and Govert Flinck. Rembrandt’s Master Pupils. A strong activities program and an active campaign for the Dutch market also contributed to this growth.
The number of Dutch visitors to call upon the Rembrandt House also increased this year, to over 50.000. The expectation is that this growth will persevere in the upcoming years, also concerning our foreign visitors. The Rembrandt House Museum has an extraordinary program in store for 2018. Some new presentations in Rembrandt’s former home, and a fall exhibition about Rembrandt and the French avant-garde movement are scheduled to take place. The year 2019 is prospected to be a stellar year. During the Rembrandt Year, the great master’s 350th death year will be commemorated in many places in the Netherlands.
