The bunker Paasloo was commissioned by the State of the Netherlands and was built in 1942-1943. The bunker was built to protect the bombing of art during the war. Over 3000 works from the Rijksmuseum were stored here. The famous artwork De Nachtwacht from Rembrandt van Rijn was not part of it. Only in 1947, two years after the liberation, all the artworks were removed and returned to the museum.
