  • Fantastic place to take children
  • 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.
