HistoryEdit

In 1884 the expansion of the museum, called "Nieuwe Museum" (New Museum), with the addition of the entrance on the Spaarne and the new Fossil rooms, had just been completed to commemorate 100 years of exhibits in the Oval Room.[1] The only part of the museum that had not profited from the expansion was the painting gallery, and this was finally done in 1893 by the regular building crew that the museum kept on hand for renovations. The new gallery was not only meant for extra exhibition space on the walls, but tables were set up for print and drawing viewing in the portfolio holders, a practice which has been kept up until today, although the prints in the viewing portfolios are now copies rather than originals.
