Museum het Rembrandthuis information
You almost expect to find the master himself at the Museum het Rembrandthuis, where Rembrandt van Rijn ran the Netherlands’ largest painting studio, only to lose the lot when profligacy set in, enemies swooped and bankruptcy came a-knocking. The museum has scores of etchings and sketches. Ask for the free audio guide at the entrance. You can buy advance tickets online, though it’s not as vital here as at some of the other big museums.
There’s also a mind-boggling collection of Rembrandt’s possessions: seashells, weaponry, Roman busts and military helmets.
