Cheese Museum and Cheese Market

Discover the dutch city of cheese: Alkmaar.

From the cow to cheese

Overlooking the world famous square Waagplein in Alkmaar, the Cheese Museum has been the go-to spot for cheese. Housed within a monumental building, the museum has a unique collection of historical artefacts. Learn more about the making of cheese, the world famous cheese market and rural life in the Dutch countries. At set times, interactive presentations are being held at the 'theatre' of the museum. Children have their own section with interactive games and videos, and can enjoy the specially laid out scavenger hunt.

Traditional cheese market

Back on the Waagplein? Shopping is done in the Old City, where you can buy clothes, coffee and a delicious lunch.
