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.
