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.

  • It was fun learning how these famous dutch cheeses are made! We had a full lesson with a lady with a good sense of humor. At the end of the presentation we went to a room full of all different types of cheeses, including smoked, pesto, spicy and goat cheeses. We could try and buy them if we wanted to. Also, Volendam is wonderful itself!

The fresh cheese did not need complicated process as one or two years old cheese. The factory employees would welcoming you and generously assist you to look their production machines and ingredients to make good and delicious cheese

  • Not much of a cheese factory. Neat but at same time ordinary. Nice staff. More of a cheese store. Good stuff but more built up for tourists. Would have been more interesting if this were an actual factory. Enjoyed the overall experience.

  • It think it is a must visit place in Volemdam. If you are a cheese lover you will find a wide variety of cheese that you can taste and buy. The stuff is very kind and they are opening any kind of cheese that you want to taste.

  • So many different kinds of cheese! I was delighted to explore the shop and taste different variants. Make sure to try their jam and mustard sauce too, fig jam was fantastic
