Betje Wolff’s independent spirit is evident in her epistolary novels written in her study in the attic. The Betje Wolff museum focuses on her life and life in the Beemster.

Since 1950, the Betje Wolff Museum has been housed in the former clergy house at Middenweg 178 in Middenbeemster. Betje (Elizabeth) Wolff-Bekker lived here from 1759 to 1777 alongside her husband, the minister Adrianus Wolff, to whom she was married out and who was thirty years her senior.

Period rooms in the Beemster

The museum is home to Wolff’s restored writing room; its bookcases are filled with books written by herself as well as Aagje Deken with whom she lived after being widowed. The house also contains several period rooms dating from different centuries, offering an impression of how people in the Beemster lived in the past.

The comprehensive collection comes courtesy of inhabitants of the Beemster, who wish to see the history of the area preserved.

Herb garden

Behind the house, there’s a beautiful orchard in 18th century style, with an herb and vegetable garden.
