Quirky little free entry museum dedicated to Dutch cheese making and history. The basement museum will keep your interest for about 15 minutes tops, then you can go back upstairs and try all the free samples. There are some unusual flavours. Good

After visiting the Anne Frank House, we ventured inside this museum. SO many samples! SO cute! Something literally for every palate. We were especially surprised/ delighted by the "crunchy" cheese, and purchased some at the end. Downstairs you can find mini-displays and a photo area...More

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
