Rembrandt Museum – History
What is now known as the Rembrandt museum started out as a normal house built in 1606. This is where Rembrandt lived for 19 years, producing much of his art. 250 years later this historical home was purchased by the government and turned into the Rembrandt Museum in 1911. The Rembrandt Museum was restored to resemble Rembrandt’s life when living there. In 1990, an additional wing was added to show more of Rembrandt’s art.
