Rembrandthuis

Rembrandthuis (Rembrandt House)( Jodenbreestraat 4, Amsterdam) – this is a house in the Jodenbreestraat in Amsterdam not far from the new townhall, where Rembrandt lived and painted for a number of years. A few years ago the house was thoroughly reconstructed on the inside to show how the house would have looked in Rembrandt’s days. Adjoining (and linked to) the house is a modern building where work of Rembrandt is on display, mainly etchings and also a part of his collection of objects from all over the world.

 

 

Rembrandt purchased the house in 1639 and lived there until he went bankrupt in 1656, when all his belongings went on auction. The auction list enabled the reconstructions of all his belongings, which are also on display in the house. Admission: €14 (adult), €5 (children ages 6-17), free for children under 6 years. Hours: 10:00 am – 6:00 pm daily.
