We have visited this museum several times, initially with our children who enjoyed the interative displays, and more recently by ourselves. We find there is still plenty for us to learn. It is spread over several floors of an old house and one can get lovely lake views from higher floors. There is a café and restaurant on the ground... More

This was a very interesting museum with a lot of interesting and fun facts about food history and nutrition. It appeals to a wide age group with something for everyone, A good way to spend a casual afternoon. The gardens were just as interesting as the inside.

We enjoyed very much the visit. The guide was a very nice lady that explained facts about nutrition and stories about food culture. The museum is extremely nice set, and well decorated, in front of the lake.

It's a fairly large building, divided according to the individual sections. It is very nicely furnished and interactively. We came less than 60 minutes before closing time, because we had no idea how big the museum is. The lady at the ticket office told us that this time is ENOUGH to browse through the museum. However, if you read all... More

The little shop downstairs has some really lovely gifts and kitchen ware for sale. The place is light and airy and its great if you have guests visiting as a local attraction
