Jesus merchandise? You should be ashamed of yourselves. Rembrandt is spinning in his grave.

Amazing to see how many world-class museums the PMA was able to borrow from for this exhibition. The Met, the Louvre, the National Gallery...not to mention the European museums and private collections. Brilliantly curated and a real coup for PMA. Congratulations!

wonderful chance to see so many pieces up close - dittos on the poor taste shown in the shop and a disturbing way to end a fine exhibit. Fortunately, the fries in Granite were a real perfect ending!

I am a teenager and i thought it was going to be boring but it was amazing ! I was surprised and the audio makes you understand it more and helps you out ! This was a once a a life time experience and i am happy to have had the privilege to see the Master pieces.

We got cut off down there. Maybe it was the earthquake. We said we enjoyed the overall exhibit but we disagree with the interpretation of one figure in picture #713: the child who is supposedly writing down every word. As former teachers, we both know a bored kid when we see one. He was doodling! Jacki also noticed a scene foreshadowing the crucifixion. Jesus was standing in front of a beam or pole with his arms outstretched as he would later be on the cross. Given the seriousness of the exhibit, the Last Supper Mints were in poor taste (no pun intended). However, all in all, the exhibit was wonderful and informative.

A fascinating, wonderful exhibition of a great artist's view of Jesus and influence of the Lord on his inner life. Thanks very much for this.

I especially enjoyed the middle gallery, with works of Rembrandt's students, and the audio commentary about their developing talent... watching the process of revelation and growth... a nice metaphor for spiritual growth, and how Rembrandt continued to study scripture to find himself within the stories, and his own parallel growth as an artist. Lovely.

I have enjoyed great exhibits in your museum, such as Tesoros, Picassso and Frida Kahlo so I must say I was a little dissapointed in this one.

Terrific exhibit, as always. I have two corrections: Rembrandt lived for over 20 years at 4 Jodenbreestrat. From the 17th century that was the name of the street, which had formerly been called Sint Antoniesbreestraat. You used the name of the street before Rembrandt lived on it. Also, we are not certain that Spinoza and Rembrandt, who lived a block apart, had contact with each other. You said that Spinoza was Rembrandt's patron. Which sources did you use?
