“Waag”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

The Waag is located opposite the Stadhuis and offers a nice photo opportunity. Inside on the lower floor is the tourist office, a small souveneir shop and a cheese shop. On the upper floor is a cheese museum, entry 4 euros and open from 12pm. I did not visit the cheese museum as it was not open at the time. It is certainly worth a quick look inside the Waag.

“Informative”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Combined a cheese museum (a must for thurophiles) and a VVV office (where one could get detailed cycling maps and other useful info)

“Nice to see”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

It's nice to visit and get a good vibe from the busy atmosphere. You can even get a weight certificate. But don't forget to look outside to the beautiful square in front with the city Hall. Come in august to enjoy the markets.

“History to view now.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

The building is special, very old, on the market, and you can go inside and see the old cheese scales. Its very interesting to see how this has been done for a very long time. If you like Gouda Cheese, this is a must visit.

“Am prejudiced. Grew up in Gouda.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Brought my Sydney-born children there, when they were teenagers. Cannot do an unbiased review. My children liked the souvenirs. I was pleased that they were served in a very friendly way. I hope that visitors to Gouda explore it. Ask questions; absorb the history.
