Typical for the North Holland stolp are the pyramid-shape and the location of the shed, barn and living room around the haystack: the square.  

The cattle shed consists of a long strip (summer shed and cheese dairy), short strip (winter shed) and adjoining stable. The (hay) loft is located above. The roof is covered with reed on the inside and rests on the square by means of beams. 

What’s unique about this farmhouse is the living room with bedstead for the help. Overview of wagons, carts, all sorts of tools, illustrations etc.

The marsh gas installation at Westerhem farm, where the museum is housed, is new. Since March 2003, Westerhem stolp farm has been designated by Beemster council as a wedding venue.
