The Jewish Museum and the Synagogue are located very close to the Rembrandt House. My husband and I had never been into a Synagogue before and this was a great, quiet, non-crowded experience. I plan to go to the Resistance Museum and the Jewish Museum on our next trip to Amsterdam.
The I Amsterdam Card includes a voucher for a free croquette at Van Dobben. There are two locations, one off of Rembrandtsplein and one at Keukenhof. The voucher is good at the location in the city. It was difficult to find and it smelled like a butchery. We were still hungry after eating. I don't think I will go back.
This church is enormous and is filled with beautiful stained glass windows. It is said to be the only building in Amsterdam virtually unchanged since Rembrandt buried his wife Saskia here in 1642. It contains over 2000 graves (which are the stones you walk on) and there are over 10000 citizens buried beneath it.
I must admit I thought this wasn't going to be very exciting but we found it fascinating to see some of the things which inspired his works. To see how they lived and to have a demonstration of his etching techniques made me appreciate his work even more than before. There are no photos allowed inside but the memories it created will last a lifetime.
