Rembrandt van Rijn (yep, Rembrandt is his first, not last name) once lived and worked in this restored home. So not only will you see the most complete collection of his etchings here, you'll also view his own interesting accumulation of objets d'art, from musical instruments to Roman busts. An audio guide is included in the admission, and many travelers recommend using it. Several travelers also highly recommend watching one of the etching demonstrations, which they say gives a more comprehensive understanding of the art and takes place three times a day. However, if you're traveling with kids, you may want to skip this attraction as past visitors said there is little to interest youngsters.

Keep in mind that there are no Rembrandt paintings – only etchings – much to the chagrin of some recent travelers, though there are paintings by Rembrandt's contemporaries, such as Pieter Lastman. The museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and charges 13 euros (about $16) for adult admission and 4 euros (about $5) for children ages 6 to 17 (visitors 5 and younger are admitted for free). If you purchased an I amsterdam card, your entry fee is waived. Visitors can take the 9 or 14 tram to the Waterlooplein stop. For more information, visit the museum's website.
