The museum's mission is to organize exhibitions that shed more light on Multatuli’s life and work. The museum collection includes his writing desk, his library, the chaise longue in which he died, as well as many books and pictures.

Additional activities
Besides looking at Multatuli’s life, the exhibition gives visitors an impression of life in the second half of the 19th century. The museum is also involved in collecting, conserving and distributing books to encourage ongoing study of Multatuli and his works.
