Rembrandt in the museum

Welcome to The Rembrandt House Museum

Museum Rembrandthuis is the only place in the world where you can experience how Rembrandt once lived. In the homely setting of the museum on the Jodenbreestraat, you will get to know the man behind his art. Be inspired by the man, the artist, his city and his time. You can’t get any closer to Rembrandt, than this.

On March 18th, 2023, the museum will reopen with 30% more Rembrandt. Five new museum spaces will be added, including an epilogue room, an etching attic and a third exhibition room. The new multimedia tour will make Rembrandt’s house and the seventeenth century really come to life. You’ll follow Rembrandt’s life story, from his arrival as an ambitious celebrity artist, to his forced departure due to an accumulation of debts. Furthermore, there will be daily etching and painting demonstrations in the museum. In the exact place where Rembrandt created his masterpieces, in his studio, you’ll discover how he made his paint. In the new etching attic, you’ll learn more about Rembrandt’s etching techniques. It’s like looking over the artist’s shoulder.

From 18 March to 11 June 2023, The Art of Drawing exhibition can be seen in the Rembrandt House Museum. For the first time in Europe, you can view 74 drawings by Rembrandt, Bol and Maes from The Peck Collection (Ackland Art Museum, USA) up close, on the spot where Rembrandt himself made his drawings. As part of this exhibition, we are organizing a number of fun activities that will help you get to know the art of drawing even better.
