The museum exposed the collections of Dutch cities which owned art since 1800 in The Hague. Than it was known as the National Art Gallery.
King Louis Napoleon, the brother of Napoleon Bonaparte moved the museum in 1808 to Amsterdam. The paintings owned by this city, like the Nightwatch of Rembrandt, were part of this collection.
In 1885 the museum moved to its current location which is built by the famous architect Pierre Cuypers. He combined elements from the gothic and renaissance era. The building is well decorated with references to the Dutch artistic history.
The Rijksmuseum exposes among others works of Jacob van Ruysdael, Frans Hals, Johannes Vermeer and Rembrandt van Rijn.
