Overview
More
The 'tastiest' museum in the Netherlands! In the museum you will see attributes and machines, which the baker used in his daily work. Most of these objects are still in use, but usually in a modernised form. The demonstrators use the old machines and other tools, as much as possible. Demonstrations take place at regular intervals at different places through the museum. Next to the demonstrations in the bakery, there are sugar-, marzipan- and chocolate demonstrations. Every day there are extra activities for children. In the shop, they can tell you more about the activities.

We visited this museum based on the reviews online and though bit sceptical at first, we were very pleasantly surprised. There is a bakery where two bakers make fresh cookies and biscuits and the children are allowed to participate. There is also a chocolatier where...More

We had a wonderful vacation at Netherlands, and the visit to De Oude Bakkerij was literally the worst experience of our trip. First of all, everything is in Dutch, and almost no one there understands English. Second, and much worse - the attitude. Once the...More

The museum is small and exhibits are poorly presented. Neither adults nor kids in our group enjoyed it.

This museum is really small. It shows some old tools and machines used in bakeries and for making chocolates. There is a movie about the history of bread, which is informative. I think they should include some of that old history in the museum. The...More

The museum is located in the center of Medemblik. It is actually a small museum and it's housed in a common house. But it is really worth visiting when you like to see a bakery from old times, or when you have younger kids. The...More
