Museum Betje Wolff

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.

Kipperust

Betje’s study and library, which she called 'Kipperust', completely renovated in 1953, are in the attic. In addition to almost all of Betje Wolff’s and her lifelong friend Aagje Deken’s published works, the library contains a wealth of reading material from Betje’s own treasure of books.  

With the aid of a richly illustrated guide, visitors can walk freely through the museum. For groups, it is possible to have an introduction and/or guided tour. In addition, the museum offers many other facilities. Due to the historical design of the building, Museum Betje Wolff has limited access for the disabled.
