4/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web
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.

  • The Museum was sadly only very small and really you can not learn much about the cheese-making there. The staff was very friendly and you could taste many cheeses. Who is nearby, should look at each case. For a day trip not worth, however.

  • not a museum, it's actually a cheese shop.a good variety of cheeses with polite staff, samples can be tried before buying 
  • Can be happy just by looking at them, they sell round cheese and go to the supermarket in the Netherlands, but it is a little bit more becomes larger seemed. You can also taste and buy. Small size increases more in addition wish to.

  • The Amsterdam Cheese Museum is a great place to try some cheese, buy some cheese, and learn about the history of Dutch cheese. The ground floor is where they sell all the cheese. There are samples around the whole store. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and will tell you anything you need to know. Downstairs is where the cheese museum is at. It's very small and it just gives you some brief facts. There's a photo op downstairs, where you can dress up in traditional Dutch clothing and pretend you work on a cheese farm (is that even the correct terminology? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ) Best of all, it's free! In a city where you have to pay to get into every attraction, this is one where you won't have to. You can spend your money on better things, like CHEESE!
  • Will update with Pokéstop status in the future. I found some quite nice cheese here and it's nice to be able to sample them all. The museum aspect is a bit lacking however.
  • This place is 80% cheese shop and 20% museum. The museum is downstairs and frankly not that interesting. Upstairs however is a great cheese shop with lots of samples. Prices are a little high but not outrageous and when you consider they have samples of almost every cheese it's pretty reasonable. Don't come here if you're interested in a cheese museum but do if you like cheese and are interested in trying lots of samples to find some you really enjoy.
  • A museum. Of cheese! Although more a cheese factory than a museum. But they do have the world's (allegedly) most expensive cheese grater!
  • Its a relly nice place. They have a cheese shop where you may taste delicious cheeses. And downstairs they have a museum.
