Holland at the Exhibition Expo Saint-Louis 1904

The Dutch pavilion is on the site normally assigned to Russia, which abandoned it when the war with Japan began.

It cost about $5,000 to build. The building occupies a space of 50 by 40 feet, and has steeply pitched stepped Dutch gables on three sides.

The Dutch building is a reproduction of a typical Dutch residence and is furnished with original, valuable antique furniture.

The pavilion is used to display a copy by Hendrik Kleyn of Rembrandt's "Night Watch", now in the Amsterdam Museum.

Admission is free to enjoy the painting. The other displays in the pavilion are also free of charge and contain antique Dutch furniture.

A typical Dutch garden surrounds the building.
