The museum is like an exhibition that there's details of how a tulip grow and some interesting facts on the tulip-mania in 16 century. However, I found it quite boring and the entrance of the museum is more like a shop while it's quite crowded at the entrance area.

Cute little capitulating layout with once again well informed staff who are more than willing to help! Great little spot for souvenirs of the tulip kind too! Great stop if you're in the neighbourhood.

Here you can learn all about the tulip birth. An insight into the tulip hike from distant countries to Europe and the Netherlands. A homely museum with a store from where you can buy tulip bulbs and other gadgets.

We stopped in to find out if there were tulip bulbs that could be taken back to the U.S. The clerk explained that this is the wrong time of year to buy tulip bulbs, but had several other types of flower bulbs in sealed export pouches. We went into the museum because we wanted to use up the last ticket... More

The tulip museum has a shop on the first floor selling all sorts of tulip merchandise. In the basement is the tulip museum, displaying all the history and beauty of these flowers. A fun little pit stop! X

The museum is small (one might say "dinky") with a semi-interesting film/video that plays downstairs. The exhibits show that they tried, but seem amateur. The Tulip Museum seems mostly like an excuse to have a gift shop. This museum was on our Amsterdam Card so we went. But even with free admission, I'd recommend "Don't go out of your way... More

Totally not worth the money. It should not be called a museum but an exhibition, since it has 6 tiny room with nothing to show but images. Not satisfying at all, and €5 are way too much. Another negative is that you have to pay €10 to be able to use you credit card. I would certainly not recommend it,... More

Good for an hour of anyone's time. Did you know tulips came from Afghanistan? Did you know they feed the red tulip heads to the cows? Next door to the cheese museum (honestly!)

They're friendly, have great resources for tulips as well as history, and they have art and delft tiles. I always buy some antique delft tiles and often some art. Across from Anne Frank Haus.
