I was happy to find out that this was not a "museum" that told the history of cheese or had photos of cheese- but a shop that carried a wide variety of local cheeses that you could taste until your hearts content! Travel friendly, vacuum packed - my favourite was the goat-cow blend and the old goat, delicious!

This is the perfect place to buy cheese if you want to bring some to US. It is fresh and vacuum sealed for traveling. They had offers which I found to be pretty good. I could have bought cheeses at the supermarket and would have had to find someone to pack it for me. The prices were just right! People... More

With a huge sign saying "CHEESE MUSEUM" we were expecting something completely different. This is not really a museum, it is a cheese shop with a small area on the lower floor with some cheese-making equipment on display. That said, it's still worth a visit. Entry to the "museum" is free of charge (you can choose to leave a donation... More

Nice place selling cheese! The difference is that here you can try the different kind of cheese they are exhibiting (all very good btw).

So many, different kind and type of cheese. I think it should be called museum and shop. Full with people but interesting place for cheese lovers!

I didn't feel like this was a museum. It was more like a shop with a variety of cheese options. The Amsterdam tulip 'museum' is just beside this and it's also more like a shop in my opinion as well. If you like cheese and flowers, it's good to visit just before or after you visit the Anne Frank House,... More

Many different types of cheese, almost everything can be tasted on spot. Very crowded but you can purchase nice gifts from there.

If you are walking around the Jordaan district - stop here! Museum itself is really tiny, but the shop upstairs is amazing. You can taste almost all cheeses there - and they are delicious. They are also vacuum-packed so you can easly take them on the plane.
