About the MuseumIf you've done some homework on Amsterdam, you've probably heard quite a bit about the city's fine cheeses. Amsterdam is definitely one of the leading cheese manufacturers in Europe, with a production of over 674,000 tons of cheese each year.
The cheese museum where you stand now, opened in 1983 and is worth a visit especially to the cheese lovers among you. It is a museum dedicated entirely to Dutch cheese. Where sellers are always dressed in traditional Dutch clothes and beyond the museum there is also an attractive shop where you can buy cheeses.
On the ground floor of the museum you can taste different types of Dutch cheese. If you go down the steps below, you will arrive at the area that deals entirely with the Gouda cheese - where you can find relevant information (videos, pictures and texts) about the history of Dutch cheese production. Another nice corner in the museum is a corner where visitors dress like farmers and take photos.
