Lambert van Meerten Museum
Oude Delft 199,
2611 HD Delft
Discover the pearl of Delft Discover the special house of Lambert van Meerten. This successful industrialist was an enthusiastic collector of old building fragments, furniture and Delft pottery. His collection became so extensive that he had a house built especially for it. Huis Van Meerten is a nineteenth-century house with a seventeenth-century appearance. Beautiful building fragments have been incorporated everywhere in the interior: consoles, wood carvings, box beds, tile panels and fireplaces. Behind the impressive natural stone facade, a classic 'Old Dutch' interior unfolds with ultra-modern amenities such as underfloor heating, gaslight and electricity. A visit to Huis van Meerten at Oude Delft 199 feels like a visit to Lambert and his sister Dina. 

03-05 October - Conference Venue                          

SEG23 will be held at the monumental site Lijm & Cultuur, the former gelatine factory of Delft. 

Rotterdamseweg 272,
2628 AT Delft

This industrial complex is used today for cultural festivals and activities, but in this case, it will be the location for the Symposium on Energy GeoTechnics 2023 (SEG23). The historical buildings still have their original facades, creating a unique atmosphere right along the waterfront and right next to the TU Delft campus.


Lijm & Cultuur

In 1885, Jacob Cornelis van Marken – known for the Gist- en Spiritusfabriek and the Nederlandse Oliefabriek (NOF) – set up a Lijm- en Gelatine factory on the piece of land between the Rotterdamseweg and the Schie.

The factory withstood wars, crises, social changes and an explosion, but was forced to stop in 2002, partly due to the BSE crisis. Since 2003, however, a special transformation has been taking place on the site and in the remaining monumental buildings: from the production of gelatin and glue to the production of culture.

Now it is transformed into a centre for conferences and events. But it still has the looks from the past.
