Amsterdam Cheese Museum, Amsterdam
(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. Plan your visit to Amsterdam Cheese Museum and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Amsterdam family vacation planner.

  • Neat museum, excellent cheeses with lots of options for samples. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff. Cheeses pre-packed for travellers.
  • Enjoyed all the samplings of cheese... including WASABI cheese! The place is smaller than you'd expect though. The museum is cute, but also small and quick. 10 minutes max. They do have a photo op where you can dress up which is pretty adorable though. Overall -- 4 stars. The staff is lovely.
  • Good Effort, it's more like a store than a museum! Like the photo backdrop downstairs haha
  • I wouldn't exactly call this a museum; however, it does provide a great opportunity to try different types of Dutch cheese. Yoi fet to try their pesto flavoured, goat, truffle, honey flavoured, spice and many other types of cheese. They also have various mustards to pair with their cheese. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff.
  • 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!
