Amsterdam Cheese Museum, Amsterdam

#21 of 74 in Museums in Amsterdam
Specialty Museum Museum
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. Plan your visit to Amsterdam Cheese Museum and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Amsterdam family vacation planner.

  • What an amazing assortment of cheeses, the tastings and the display are wonderful. I highly recommend a visit here. There is no charge to get in, and cheese tastings are free also.
  • Large variety of cheeses with mostly Gouda (many available to taste). Downstairs there is a small area with cheese history and cheese making exhibits.
  • Free samples and lots and lots of cheeses. Free photo booth. Very nice!!!!
  • Cheese! This place has a lot of you guessed it cheese. They have a great store staffed by friendly and knowledgeable people. Take a moment to check out the small museum about cheese in the basement free of charge. Also you can taste the many different cheese they sell including the new Heineken flavored cheese!
  • The cheese museum is actually located in the basement of the shop, a small section dedicated to it. Lots of exotic and good cheese on sale here, with sampling plates.
