Holland's small entry was on the site formerly allotted to Russia and abandoned by that country when war had begun with Japan. The building cost about  5,000  dollars. It occupied a space 50 by 40 feet, and showed on three sides steep-pitched Dutch gables with corbie-steps on the slopes.

While not an exact copy of the home of Rembrandt,  thew building is a perfect piece of sixteenth century domestic architecture, and is a curio shop of
old furniture. Delft pottery and silver. In one of the rooms is an exact size reproduction of the most famous of all Rembrandt's paintings, the one that has
been called "The Night Watch," copied by  Hendrik Kleyn,  which was in the State Museum at Amsterdam at the time.
An admission fee was charged to view the picture.

The other parts of the building were free and contained  fine antique Holland furniture. A typical Dutch garden surrounded the structure.
