Lovely museum with lots of interesting information about tulips. They also sell various bulbs that can be exported. Located just a few meters away and the perfect stop before or after visiting the Anne Frank House. If you love tulips, this is the place to go!!

This was my first museum visit in Amsterdam. The exhibit is in English, and consists of, as others have said, an introductory (and light hearted) video about the tulip and its role in Dutch history. Several rooms, each with interesting displays and information, and a very reasonably priced shop, selling tulips, and tulip-themed ephemera. The staff were friendly and helpful,... More

I'm glad that this musuem was included with my I amsterdam card and that I didn't have to pay for entry. I felt that it was more of a gift shop with a brief history of the import of tulips into The Netherlands.

Go here if you want to buy tulips. The museum feature is a manipulation for tourists to get people into the store. They do have a film on tulips and a small area of panels on the wall, which costs a few Euros to see.

We visited during May expecting to buy bulbs for the next season. But you can't buy tulip bulbs until autumn. The staff were really friendly and explained everything you need to know.

nice place to visit, they sell very nice items with everything related to tulips including bulbs. Very interesting items, it is small but very well done and only takes 15-20 minutes to view.

This is really more of a tullip (and other flower) shop, than a museum, but as others have noted, it's right across the street from the Anne Frank house, and so is already on most people's routes. Very nice for a short visit, and the museum downstairs is included in the IAmsterdam card. Gorgeous flowers, and many are packaged for... More

Enjoyed the small museum, nice gift shop up front. Learned quite a bit about tulips ahead of our visit to the gardens outside the city. Steep stairs.
