Rembrandt's former residence was also where the Dragon had been. This house was not only Rembrandt's residence, but also his business and teaching place. After he went bankrupt, he auctioned... The beds that people used to sleep in were so lifelike that the servants slept in box beds.
Not bad. There are three or four stories. I can't remember clearly. The staircase is a narrow rotating staircase, and the collection is very rich.
Rembrandt's former residence Museum lived between 1639 and 1656. The prosperity of Rembrandt's career was also a glorious period of his life. But his wife's and children's departure and the fuel cost of his experimental paintings left him bankrupt and forced him to auction the residence of Rembrandt's famous paintings.
It's worth seeing. It's only a few minutes'walk from the Central Railway Station. There are free Chinese explanations. The whole building of Rembrandt's former residence, the furnishings of Rembrandt's rooms and Rembrandt's collection are introduced in detail. More valuable explanations are about the role of every room in the whole building and Rembrandt's life at that time.
I appreciate Rembrandt's paintings. The legend of this great painter can be understood in this former residence all his life. His position in the eyes of the Dutch is unshakable, Van Gogh is a step behind him. Although the former residence is small, Tibetan paintings are very rich and worth spending hours slowly enjoying.
THE REMBRANDT HOUSE MUSEUMRembrandt lived and worked in this beautiful and house between 1639 and 1658.

Having visited the former residence of Rubens in Antwerp, Am's former residence of Rembrandt looks very simple. First of all, the facade, a three-storey building facing the street, from the outside you can feel that the space inside will be very constrained. On the ground floor are ticket offices and souvenir shops, which are mini-shops and have nothing to buy. The upper floors are living rooms, studios and so on. There are devices in the doorway of each room. The interpreter can listen to them just by looking at it.
This house, which Rembrandt lived in for 30 years, remains one of the few 17th century building still standing in this area which borders the Red Light District. In Rembrandt's time, it was much more middle class. The museum not only shows what Rembrandt's life was like but also features some of his art work.
I loved this place, I loved the history behind it and I watched someone make paint the way they did 500 years ago!
