Rembrandt House Museum (Dutch: Museum het Rembrandthuis)

The Rembrandt House Museum (Dutch: Museum het Rembrandthuis) is the house in Jodenbreestraat in Amsterdam, Netherlands, whereRembrandt House Museum Rembrandt lived and painted for nearly twenty years. It is now a museum. Rembrandt purchased the house in 1639 and lived there until he went bankrupt in 1656, when all his belongings were auctioned. Thanks to the detailed inventory and catalogue for the auction, and also some drawings by Rembrandt, we have an unusually good idea of the contents, which has allowed the museum to reconstruct the appearance of the rooms with similar period items.
