No museum, just shop!
Aug 2020 • Family
We expected to see the cheese making process, as advertised on their Facebook page and in all the reviews, whether this would have been by ourselves or with a presentation. First the door of the factory /museum gets closed to our face(we entered through the store) and we are told to wait, as another group is inside. We waited for about 5 min, the door was opened and we were waiting again for another door to open from the front room to the factory downstairs. It did not.... the explanation :only organized groups can enter.
This could have been communicated from the beginning, it would have saved our bad experience!

Dear MihaelaK721, Thank you for taking the time to give us your feedback. We are sad to read you did not have a pleasant visit and we are sorry it was not clear that groups book in advance for a certain time. We do hope you tasted some of our delicious cheese and that you had a wonderful day in Volendam. Kind regards, Cheese Factory Volendam

Wonderful experience of cheese making process
Dec 2019
It was really a good chance to see the demonstration how the cheese was made with the process flow. A good way to learn from the demonstration. for educational. The other side of the shop sells many type of cheese with different qualities and different prices. We have the chance to taste some of them and honestly speaking they tasted good.

I had a one day gap in business meetings so decided to take the tour of the windmills, clog making and cheese making in Volendam
Very educational as well as fun, beautiful charming village. Some of my best pictures came from this region.
Let’s just say the wheel of Gouda cheese was a success at my house!
Wish I could buy on-line in states
If you have time, go!
You won’t regret it

Educational and yummy

You can try out a myriad of cheeses, meet the cows and learn lots of cow facts. The cow stable is an amazing piece of modern facing technology. I doubt anyone will be able to try all the cheese available and then not buy any.

Interesting cheese making demo and great cheese tasting!
Jun 2019
We visited the Cheese Factory Volendam on a bus tour from Amsterdam. First we watched a cheese making demonstration that was very interesting. After the demo we walked around the shop, tasted all the wonderful types of cheese and purchased some of our favorite type. Cheese galore...it was wonderful!

Good selection of cheeses and an interesting information session but not worth a lot of travel to get there
Jan 2020
We went here as a part of a tour and, to be honest, whilst it was reasonable and the people very friendly and the cheese is good - I don't think that I would have bothered if it wasn't included (and there are cheese stores and tastings etc in Amsterdam anyway)

Even though I am not a cheese-person , I still enjoyed walking around and ate the cheese , too. And they will show how the cheese was made. Don't miss it.
