We're a 'cheesy' family, so when we saw Amsterdam had a cheese museum it was on our must stop list. Assuming it was what I would call a 'proper' museum we were all disappointed to find it to be a cheese shop in a tiny...More

This is not so much a museum but rather a shop disguised as a museum. Nicely done tho but a little confusing

A small place that tells you about the process of making cheese and giving you some funny facts about the history too. You can eat some cheese too and you don’t have pay to visit. But on your way out you can get convinced to...More

I would rate this a more of a really nice cheese shop near the Anne Frank Museum. But it does have a small museum so it could be called a Museum Shop

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.
