On a very wet cold day this was the only place to be where hopefully i may warm up a little from the Hot Ovens inside.
Once inside the first thing that hits you is the Wonderful smell of Baking Spices etc.

It is however not only still a very active Bakery but a very nice working Museum too - it is a very ideal place for families with children.
There is some information in English but the demonstrations of baking where in Netherlands language only - but you could work out everything that has happening from the practical demonstations.

So you get to see demonstations of baking biscuits and an old fashioned ice cream maker - you can eat the ice cream fresh from the machine - you can buy Biscuits on your way out baked that day - and in the Cafe in side you can have a Biscuit and Coffee - so to taste before you buy - and this was on offer for 2 Euro when i was there.

Inside the Museum there are lots of old Machines - some you can operate - and are some nice old collections - including old Biscuit Tins.

There is a nice display of some Sugar Sculptures including a Steam Engine

Address: Nieuwstraat 8 1671 BD Medemblik, Nederland
Directions: Near the very top of Nieuwstraat on the left. First i could not find it - from the outside looks like a little shop - because you go through this small part to the good sized museum behind
