If you want to buy some Dutch cheese from a shop, you could do a lot worst than buy from here. It is not however a Museum, so don't make a special trip here. Nice cheese.

We didn't go down into the Museum (separate entrance below), but we did taste the cheese they had and decided to buy some to take home. Delicious with lots of variety. But this was not a MUST SEE spot. Lots of other spots around town...More

This place is awesome! It’s free, there’s free samples and it’s also informative. We ended up buying some cheese and mustards there. It was hard to choose because everything was so good! The staff is very friendly and helpful. If you have time pop in,...More

I honestly enjoyed going through the museum and the shop. The fact that the museum entrance was free made me want to support the shop - which is totally cheesy by the way! There are so many free samples to be tried and enjoyed with...More

Not the usual type of museum your are waiting for but definitely a heaven for all cheese lovers out there! Infinite tastings, helpful stuff, and cheap cheese to bring home! Cheesed to meet you!

A decent variety of cheese and dips and friendly staff. We spent about half an hour in there trying different cheeses, it's a great choice if you want to buy some and bring back as a gift.

I don't really know why it's called "museum". You just have a little room showing how the cheese is made. But the staff is really friendly and can give you good advice. You can literally taste everything (cheese, sweets...). Prices are raisonnable! And it is...More

What a fantastic find in the city of Amsterdam! It is essentially a cheese shop, with a small cheese museum downstairs. The modest shop offers free samples of cheese, that you can taste at your own leisure! It is definitely worth a visit to explore,...More

One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and
some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two
of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll
through this especially convivial warren of narrow
streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and
quality galleries. Historically a haven for the
working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is
better known as an enclave for artists and designers.

In most cases the cheese you buy has a layer of wax, usually coloured (green, red, strong yellow, sometimes even blue) that you should take of before eating. It's role is to keep the cheese fresh for a longer period of time... More
