Black in Rembrandt's Time
Now on - May 31, 2020

Black in Rembrandt's Time is a must-see exhibition that focusses on black people in 17th-century Netherlands. Explore the art and stories of various 'Afro-Amsterdammers', who weren't just secondary figures in subordinate roles, but often the subjects of amazing works of art. Black in Rembrandt's Time is a journey through overlooked works of art, subjects, as well as well-overdue recognition and acknowledgment.


There was a time when master painter Rembrandt van Rijn ran the Netherlands' largest painting studio from this very spot. Then he lost it all to bankruptcy. Peruse a selection of exquisite etchings and sketches by the Dutch master, and get a sense of life during the 17th century inside the artist's exquisitely restored Amsterdam townhouse.

Between 1639 and 1658, Rembrandt himself lived and worked in this beautiful Amsterdam house, and collected seashells (yes, really – tons of them!). The Rembrandt House now owns pretty much the whole collection of Rembrandt's etchings and plenty of his possessions.

See an authentic collection of military helmets and weaponry, Roman busts and of course, those seashells!

The Rembrandt House has been redecorated with furniture, art, and objects dating back to the 17th century, so walk through his home as it would have been, and get a feel for his world.

Additional info


The museum is partly accessible to disabled people. The main entrance, museum shop, auditorium, toilets and exhibition halls are fully accessible for all visitors. Plus there's an elevator in the new wing. However, the 17th-century house of Rembrandt has no elevator or other facilities available for disabled people and is therefore not very accessible.

It was one of the best historical artists Houses I have ever visited. What stood out for me was the demonstration of Rembrandt’s printing techniques by Eric Scott Armitage who brought it alive.
