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 place is just a few steps walk from where I staying in May1,2015. It's a must place to come over and took some pictures. Why? Because it's unique :D

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

If you have time on your hands and want to be more informed about food, this is a good place to go. Quite varied in the type of exhibits, it has something for people of all ages. Some machines give out chocolates for you to taste :)
