Amsterdam Cheese Museum, Amsterdam

4.1
#21 of 107 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.

  • The museum is free but very small. The best part is the shop where we tried many different cheeses and condiments before buying a couple of cheeses! Great!  more »
  • The store is more interesting than the Museum. Many varieties of cheese tasting, we ended up buying some of them. We were very well received by the developer of the store it was Portuguese.

  • This place is not really a museum. It is a cheese shop with samples. The "museum" part downstairs for me was pointless and boring, nevertheless there are enough samples upstairs to tantalise the taste...  more »

  • Excellent selection of quirky cheeses. Truffle, Cumin, Pepper, heck even beer! Jovial staff that made a visit to this shop/museum very pleasant. I left feeling good 100 bucks lighter. Highly recommended!
  • awesome place to have a look at. The cheese are amazing! and so are the people there. They are helpful with choosing the right one for you and there's literally hundreds of samples to try out. Down stairs is even more interesting. Worth checking out and highly recommended!
  • I’ve never tasted so many different flavours of cheese before visiting this place. Every cheese is available for sample and I sampled most of it. Thank god for not being lactose intolerant, am I right? They have flavours ranging from garlic to lavender and to even beer. The beer was uncomfortably too beer flavoured, but I’m sure it’s someone’s thing. The cheese ranges from €10-20. The staff are lovely and very welcoming and interactive with customers. The museum itself is very small, but interesting. Great place to learn about cheese.
  • Free cheese samples for tasting were delicious and the little cheesemaking museum in the basement is a good idea! It's not a typical museum, but is still worth a visit for cheese gift shopping! The staff are all fluent English speakers and very friendly and informative.
  • Absolutely loved the place. It's cozy, staff is very informative and helpful, amazing products along with a small but cute museum on Holland cheese. Would recommend for sure!
