The Dutch have a firm love affair with their cheese. This museum and factory exhibits the history, evolution and current production methods of Dutch cheese. There are three sections to the tour:

  • Museum: Located in the basement, this room explores the discovery of cheese 6000 years ago, and traditional cheese making methods through historical artefacts and photographs.
  • Factory: An expert will take you through the whole sequence of steps by which tonnes of milk are daily processed into cheese of different flavours - lactic acid, curd stage, brine bath and ripening.
  • Tasting: After an explanation of the ripening process, you will learn to identify between different scents, flavours and structures of cheese.

There's also a movie on cheese making that runs on a loop. The staff is super friendly. And at the end of it all, you can of course by your own cheese before you leave.

Cheese Factory Volendam Reviews & Ratings

  • Went here on a tour. We had a demonstration and cheese and wine tasting. The cheese is delicious! Sadly my favourite cheese is not pasteurized, so I cannot take it on the plane home. Their dip/sauce was really delicious too!

  • Wonderful experience. It really worth the ticket. Very nice and lovely staff and hosts. Highly recommended.

  • Very smartly orchestrated tourism. The entire event is peaceful and joyful. The cheese experience is mouthwatering! For cheese lovers, the liberal cheese samples quickly converts into purchases. The varieties available are very good. Look for cheese dips/flavour enhansers. They are mouthwatering!

  • Amazing place about 30 mins away from Amsterdam. It's a traditional cheese factory where you can experience cheese making process and can also have some for you.We.were given a professional.briefing on factory and the process.overall a great place to visit with a guided tour.

  • In Volenda, one of the wonderful places of the countryside of Holland (The Netherlands) no doubts that Holland is one of the most important cheese producers in the world and not only about the quantity but even about the quality too! they gave us a lot of types of cheese to taste them but the one i loved much is the smoked gouda, i can't even fine words to describe that incredible soft taste, really wonderful, even if the price was bit higher but the taste is worth it i invite all of you to try it, you will never regret it!
