Amsterdam Cheese Museum, Amsterdam

4.1
#20 of 110 in Museums in Amsterdam
Try some of the best cheese in the country at Amsterdam Cheese Museum, where you can try and purchase products from different cities including Gouda, Edam, Leerdammer, Leyden, Old Amsterdam, and many more. Because of its small size, the attraction almost feels more like a shop than a museum. However, the collection is still impressive, and you can freely taste and compare recipes that have been around for more than 600 years.

  • What an amazing find. Fab little mini museum experience downstairs but the shop is the main attraction. Tasting samples of all the cheese sold really showed it to the best effect. Unusual cheeses and ...  more »

  • Cute little place. Free admission, and lots of great samples. Extremely close walking distance to the Anne Frank House (opposite side of the canal). The Truffle Gouda they sell is worth the 5-stars! This cheese is unbelievably rich in flavour!
  • Borderline tasteless (almost too cheesy) combination of a cheese shop and a small museum. A lot of different, great cheeses and a lot of tastings. Museum is quite tongue-in-cheek, but interesting nonetheless. They're walking a thin line, but doing it well. Absolutely worth a quick visit.
  • Just great! Free cheese to try. Better be hungry when you go there. Otherwise it will be a hard test for you stomach.
  • Had some lovely cheese and chutney here. Plenty of free samples to try and a little museum area down some steep steps. Nice free place to visit whilst visiting Amsterdam
  • If you like cheese, this is the place to to. There are so many kinds of cheese you can try. The staff was sooo nice! They were really friendly and helpful. I felt really happy! There is a small museum in the basement which you can use for free. You can try some clothes and the wooden shoes as well as see some tools for cheese there. It was an enjoyable and fun experience. I would recommend this place very much!
