Rembrandt House


former living house and painting room of Rembrandt

Rembrandt House Museum is the house in which the painter Rembrandt lived and worked between 1639 and 1656. Rembrandt purchased the house in 1639 and lived there until he went bankrupt in 1656, when all his belongings went on auction.

The building is located on Jodenbreestraat in the old Jewish neighbourhood of Amsterdam.

In the nineties, the building was completely restored to its original state to reflect the living and working environment of the master. The inventory of Rembrandt’s house that had been drawn up when he was declared bankrupt in 1656 served as a guideline for the refurbishment. READ MORE
