The Rembrandt House Museum has all kinds of fun activities for families with children.

On an adventure with Kwast (from 6 years of age)

Rembrandt was not only a very good artist, he was also a great animal lover. Animals appear in many paintings and etchings. One animal does feature remarkably often: his dog Kwast. Kwast knows all the secret nooks and crannies in the house. An ideal guide! The new multimedia tour takes you on an adventure through The Rembrandt House Museum, together with Kwast.
