Multatuli Museum is dedicated to one of the most celebrated Dutch writers. Eduard Douwes Dekker, who took the penname Multatuli, was born here in 1820 as the fourth child of the Dutch ship captain. Since 1910, the society to memorize Multatuli was established and took as one of its aims collecting manuscripts and objects linked to the writers past. At first this collection has been stored at the University Library of Amsterdam and since 1957, while manuscripts remained there, all objects and books were moved to the newly established Multatuli Museum, in the house of his birth. Actually, the writer’s family had only one floor of the small house at Korsjespoortsteeg, while today the museum has two. The museum reminds its visitor writer’s times, his life and his writings.
