Multatuli Museum

The Multatuli Museum (also Multatuli House/Huis) is a 17th-century canal house in the Jordaan neighbourhood of Amsterdam, Netherlands. It is dedicated to Eduard Douwes Dekker (1820-1887), whose pen name was Multatuli. Multatuli is best known for his 1860 novel Max Havelaar, inspired by time spent in Indonesia while serving in the Dutch civil service. Eduard Douwes Dekker was born in the Multatuli House and he died 67 years later in Ingelheim am Rhein, Germany on a red sofa that can be seen here to date.

In 2013, the Multatuli House had 1176 visitors. The museum organises regular temporary exhibitions about the writer as well as lectures, symposia and themed guided walks through Amsterdam.
