Museum Het Rembrandthuis
One of the most famous inhabitants that ever graced Amsterdam is, without a doubt, Rembrandt van Rijn. The painter was born in Leiden moved to Amsterdam to start his career. His house, nowadays called Rembrandthuis, dates from 1606 where the artist and his wife lived between 1639 and 1658. It was in this house that famous paintings such as De Nachtwacht were painted. 250 of the 300 etchings Rembrandt created are displayed here. The museum also owns a number of sketches by Rembrandt and paintings by his teacher Pieter Lastman and some of Rembrandt's apprentices. There's a museum store, cafe and information center on the premises as well.
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.
