Baker’s demonstration: a funny story on the craft of bakery and its history

Take a peek into the daily life of bakers of the past and present at the Dutch Bakery Museum, with fun activities for young and old alike. Times past are revived in the 150-year-old bakery.

In the picturesque town of Hattem, at the northernmost point of the Veluwe woods on the banks of the IJssel river, lies the best bakery museum in the Netherlands. A museum chock-full of delicacies and fun things to do for young and old alike, where everything revolves around the history of bread and pastries.

Hidden courtyards

The museum consists of no less than five historical buildings located on a romantic narrow street. A small open-air museum about the life and work of bakers. The buildings are connected by a tunnel and hidden courtyards. Each location highlights a different aspect of how bread and pastries are made.

Activities during the school holidays

During the school holidays, extra activities are put on for children. Children can bake cookies with an experienced baker and discover the museum on an exciting scavenger hunt. The family performance by Baker Fred in the museum theater guarantees an unforgettable day.

The most delicious museum...

In such a delicious museum, of course there’s something delicious to eat too! Take a seat in the atmospheric Opoes Gelag for a fresh cup of tea or coffee with fresh baked goods from our own bakery. Since 2020, the Dutch Bakery Museum has been serving traditional Dutch poffertjes. The furnishing itself is worth visiting! In good weather, you can eat outdoors on the beautiful square.
