It is said that the museum has been standing tall for over two centuries and falls in the list of some of the exquisite museums of the world. One of the local residents told us that the museum has gone through a number of transformations. It is definitely a must-visit place in Netherlands. The museum came into existence in the year 1800 when it was first opened for the public as the National Art Gallery or Nationale Kunstgallerij. It has been transported numerous times before it was founded in Netherlands by Louis Bonaparte, the King of Netherlands and brother of Napoleon in 1808.
One of the officials involved in the maintenance of the museum told me that the collections inside the museum have been growing at such a fast pace that it becomes necessary to shift the building every time. The museum was recently renovated and opened in 2013 after ten years of closure since December in 2003.
