Things you need to know:

  • Museum Het Rembrandthuis (Rembrandt House) is a beautifully preserved 17th-c. house where Rembrandt lived in his years of prosperity (1639-58)
  • He was the city's most prominent portrait painter at this time, but due to his extravagant lifestyle he went bankrupt and had to leave the house
  • In 1906 the building was restored and refurnished painstakingly to resemble exactly what it looked liked when the painter lived there
  • A very valuable document in the process of restoration was Rembrandt's 1656 bankruptcy petition that listed and described his possessions
