Zaans Museum

Verkade Experience

Daily from 09:00 to 17:00

Scavenger hunt

Right at the heart of the museum, you will find the Verkade Experience, a treat for young and old!

Here, you will be transported back to the chocolate and biscuit factory of the early twentieth century, where the original machines are still churning away and the history of Verkade comes alive.

Serious Games

Have you always wanted to work in a chocolate and biscuit factory? Then take the chance now! Test your dexterity with the games at the Verkade Experience. Put on your work clothes and pretend to be a ‘Verkade girl’, a chocolate expert, or a biscuit baker. Will you get promoted to director, or will you be sacked?

Your own chocolate wrapper

Get a chocolate bar of choice at the ticket desk of the Zaans Museum for €2,50 and create a custom Verkade chocolate bar wrapper using your own design and choice of colours. When you’re happy with your design, use the mini packaging machine to wrap your chocolate bar in your own wrapper.
