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.
