The Rembrandt House Museum or the Museum Het Rembrandthuis, as it is locally known, is in Amsterdam, Netherlands. From 1639 until 1656 the renowned painter Rembrandt lived here. In 1656 the house and its contents were auctioned when he became bankrupt. Today, the inside of the house has been recreated and decorated to make it appear as it did when the Master artist resided here.
The Museum not only exhibits some of his works but also paintings of his contemporaries. Adjacent to Rembrandt's House is a modern building and an extension of the museum. It displays his works, and also his collection of statues, busts and mementos from the world over.
