  • I had no idea Rembrandt led such an interesting life. The self-guided audio tour is great. You can do it independently without getting pushed along in a group. Also quite reasonably priced admission and close to good food.
  • Included on the top floor and nominally intended as "just" a live demonstration of Rembrandt's painting materials and their sources and the challenges associated with transforming those materials into the various oil colors brings this museum absolutely alive. The demonstrator was hugely interactive and repeatedly provided tremendous insights, well beyond the pure mechanics of the painting process, into Rembrandt's life from initial work through acclamation to later criticism and bankruptcy and final departure to modest quarters.
