Amsterdam Cheese Museum

Cheese lovers will rejoice with free cheese tasting and the wonderful opportunity to learn more about the history and production of Dutch cheese.

With over 600 years in tradition, the art of making Dutch cheese is steeped in history and the Amsterdam Cheese Museum provides visitors with a fantastic opportunity to learn about the long history and production of Dutch cheese. For example, visitors will be interested to discover that the names of different sorts of cheese were adopted after the names of different cities in the Netherlands – Gouda, Edam, Leerdammer and more. Visitors can also engage in fun activities such as a viewing of the most expensive cheese slicer in the world, and dressing up as Dutch farmers for a once in a lifetime photo opportunity.

Best of all, on the ground floor of the museum, visitors get to taste test different varieties of traditional Gouda cheese for free and determine their favourites for themselves. Situated close to the Anne Frank House on Prinsensgracht street, the Amsterdam Cheese Museum is an interesting place to stopover for travellers’ keen on learning and trying (for free!) one of Amsterdam’s most famous food productions – Dutch cheese.
