There was a great variety of cheeses to try and they had some souvenir items also. The small museum was a treat. I love the Dutch cheeses and the opportunity to try so many different types.

Of course, in the cheese museum, there are cheese samples EVERYWHERE! Literally try every cheese on the shelves ! All so tasty & creamy! My favourite was a liquorice & lemon. Although I wouldn’t really say it’s a museum, I didn’t leave learning anything...

As many others have said, don't expect too much from the Museum downstairs. It's small, but still informative and a little fun with the props. The best part of this place is the shop on street level. The variety of cheese is amazing, with tasters...More

Smaller than expected, but gives you a nice overview on cheese making. You can then go ahead and try the different cheese and buy.

When you first enter, it is a small store filled with all kinds of cheese to sample and purchase. The employees are all very friendly and speak some English. They also sell cheese-themed souvenirs and high-quality kitchen items. If you walk to the very back...More

This place is misnamed. It's a cheese shop with a poor attempt at claiming itself to be a museum with a one room display in the basement, (which you reach via an incredibly steep staircase). As for the cheese itself, the samples are the tiniest...More

A bit of a disappointment really, but they sell a great selection of cheeses. The basement shows some of the machinery & processes for cheese making.

This was our second visit in 2 years. It is a fun place to go and down the street from the Anne Frank house. There are numerous delicious cheeses to sample and the staff is very helpful! Downstairs in the museum is some fun information...More

I just popped in as I was in the area. I enjoyed wandering around the shop and tasting the different cheeses - it took me a long time as I was very indecisive about buying gifts! The staff were super friendly and helpful though, and...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
