History of the Zaan region - Chocolate & biscuit factory. The collection is extremely wide-ranging and is presented in a contemporary way. It features utensils, clothing and paintings as well as factory equipment from the food industry, and as you make your way through the museum you can press on various displays and try and package as many biscuits and sweets as you can in a computer game.

There is always something exciting to experience in the Netherlands’ tastiest museum. You can imagine you are in an early 20th-century factory, with authentic machinery in full working order. The history of chocolate and biscuits comes to life in the place where the famous Verkade girls used to work. It’s the perfect venue for a children’s party or a fascinating guided tour. The museum also hosts workshops, lectures, meetings, business excursions and special packages.
