We need your support!

The Rembrandt House Museum faces great difficulties, just as other cultural institutions and businesses, because of the crisis. We are proud that for the past several decades we have been able to generate our own income, and have not had to rely very much on subsidies. On our own we have been able to open our doors year in year out for more than a quarter million people – from the neighbourhood as well as from all corners of the earth. But now a large part of our income has fallen away because of the 1.5 meter restrictions and the decline in foreign visitors. This is why we are urgently asking for your help. Support us now, before it is too late. Only with your support can we keep Rembrandt’s house open. Read below the ways you can do this.


We are looking forward to seeing you again in Rembrandt’s home, because we miss you! Purchase a ticket, or give one as a gift, and support the museum.  You can purchase an eticket in our ticket shop here.


You can always count on your friends! That was true for Rembrandt and is certainly true for The Rembrandt House Museum. Thanks to our loyal Society of Friends we have been able to realize many projects and wonderful acquisitions. As Friend you become part of the inner circle of the museum and help build its future. For 75 euros per year you can become a Friend with one other person (or make someone else a Friend). Read more on this page about how you can do this and which privileges you receive, such as unlimited free admission, exclusive previews of exhibitions, and discounts in the store and webshop.

NEW | If you become a friend now and you will receive a unique, hand-printed etching after one of Rembrandt’s etching plates! We hope we may count your friendship during these turbulent times.


In the past years we could receive many donations and bequests. This made it possible to develop many exhibitions and educational programs, also for people who are not able to come to the museum, such as seniors in care homes. Help us to make special initiatives possible, through which the Rembrandt House will really remain for everyone. You can find more information here about how you can donate easily and simply.


Our regular sponsors have known for years: the Rembrandt House is a national icon, the place where the greatest Dutch artist lived with his family and made many of his masterpieces. Would your business like to contribute to this unique cultural heritage enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of people per year? Contribute to Rembrandt’s legacy and his significance for today, to talent development, to high level research, to exemplary exhibitions and to our sustainable cultural enterprise.
