  • The birthplace of Multatuli has always been a good reason to visit this museum, but with the works of Van Kruiningen there is now an extra reason to visit this museum. Wonderful work for texts by Multatuli. It is perhaps the smallest museum in the Netherlands, but it is therefore not worth the least to visit.

  • Such a nice and small museum. Multatuli was the person that started the end of colonialism in Indonesia.  more »

  • Small quirky indy museum devoted to the Dutch writer Multatuli (Eduard Douwes Dekker). It shows some of his furniture, including his writing desk and the couch on which he blew his last. On the ground floor many editions of his work. Multatuli’s most famous novel is “Max Havelaar”, an indictment of the Dutch colonial regime in Indonesia, which has world-wide been claimed by both the left and right of the political spectrum as supporting their cause. The curator offered me a private tour, which was most interesting.
  • A must see if you want to know more about the famous dutch writer Multatuli. He was actually born in this museum and it now holds a fine collection of his belongings and books. There is also a large archive with books written by him and about him
