Jodenbreestraat 4

The house where Rembrandt lived for around 20 years of his life is now open to the public. It was built in the Jewish quarters of Amsterdam in 1606. However, it was not until 1639 that Rembrandt went to live there and this is where he was educated. Today, it is a museum which displays 250 of the 300 paintings done by the artist. There are also drawings done by Rembrandt and some of his contemporaries.

The former house of this 17th century artist is the first which has been converted into a museum and is open for guided visits. Apart from the permanent collection, it holds temporary shows related to Rembrandt’s life and his works.
