Since 1950, the former vicarage of the N.H. church in Middenbeemster has been home to “Museum Betje Wolff". The museum gets its name from the famous 18th century writer, Elizabeth Wolff, nee Bekker, who lived in the vicarage throughout her marriage to the vicar, Adrianus Wolff (1759 - 1777). The museum has a large number of period rooms from various periods and brings to life three centuries of living culture of Beemster and surroundings. Furthermore, the museum has an 18th century-style renovated garden. In the summer changing exhibitions are organized.
