One of the most famous inhabitants that ever graced Amsterdam is without a doubt Rembrandt van Rijn. The painter was born in Leiden, but moved to Amsterdam to start his career. His house, nowadays called, The Rembrandt House, dates from 1606 and the artist and his wife lived in it between 1639 and 1658. It was in this house that famous paintings such as De Nachtwacht were painted. It exhibits 250 of the 300 etchings Rembrandt created. The museum also owns a number of sketches by Rembrandt and paintings by (among others) his teacher Pieter Lastman and some of Rembrandt's apprentices. There is also temporary exhibitions from modern art as well as older art, a museum store, cafe and in the Rembrandt Information Center you can find all kinds of details.
Well preserved museum of Rembrandt's home. A good trip to the past including a fascinating kitchen down the stairs and I the furniture was great including the cabinet-bed he slept in. Not much in the way of art onsite, but the upstairs had a fine collection of tools that were used.
Excellent cafes close by.
