Amsterdam Cheese Museum, Amsterdam

4.1
#21 of 120 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.

  • When you need a quick pick-me-up, protein style...head over to this charming cheese shop with a cute museum on the lower level. The staff is plentiful and ready to answer your questions + serve up cheese not necessarily out for sampling. About samples, there are so many readily available to try. The Boerderijkaas Truffle was very good! Flavor came through quite well. The vacuum packaging is great for travel as it can stay up to a week without refrigeration. Some cool novelty cheeses with colors like a rainbow.
  • Very cute little shop near Anne Frank House. I love how you can try samples, and the little museum room downstairs is a nice touch as well and cheese of course is delicious. It does get very packed but it’s too be expected as it is a well known place to visit in Amsterdam now
