The Tulip museum is a small museum to be sure, the video that you are shown at the start is very informative and interesting and the rest of the display brings the information to life. The staff in shop at the front of the museum were the highlight for me though. If you (or someone you know) has green fingers... More

Seeking a mood lightener after visiting the Anne Frank house, I crossed the canal and headed to the Tulip Museum. The bright colours from the exterior were somewhat restorative. The museum was very interesting and well appointed. I had the luxury of being the only visitor so had the museum to myself, and was thus able to sit and savour... More

Spent a really interesting half hour here. Had no idea about the history of the tulip. Lovely shop and overall really good value too. Well worth a visit whilst waiting for a boat!

Small museum, it didn't really perk my interest, it was close to Anne Frank's house, so we stopped in to check it out. If you are looking to kill time and enjoy tulips then this is place you would like to stop in at.

A surprisingly thorough and satisfying museum and that beefs up the subject through a bizarre, irritating but brilliant song via video of a man and his double bass singing about the rise and fall of tulip in Amsterdam.

I love gardening, this is the perfect hour for someone like me- a great opportunity to buy unusual bulbs, a souvenir from Amsterdam that is truly made/grown locally. They also provide certified bulbs to export to USA and lots of bulb vases, pots and even books and tools, everything you need to become addicted to tulips.

We stopped in the gift shop above the museum while we waited for our entrance time to the Anne Frank House, which is just a block away. The shop was lovely- wonderful souvenirs. I got lots of cute wooden tulips, and also some bulbs for home ( Americans, be sure to get the bulbs approved for import to the US-... More

Cute little museum with a couple of videos with the history of Tulips in Holland and then another at end exhibits of modern day cultivation. It was a nice little history lesson of how special the Tulip was/is in the area. There was a nice display of a variety of flower vase filled and some filled with flowers

Since I didn't hear much of a good review about the museum, we decided not to pay the fee. We just went inside the shop and I was satisfied with the items sold there. They were nice and sold at a reasonable price. I bought few items which were very nice as gifts for my friends. The lady at the... More
