As a horticulturist I found this museum really charming - it bridges popular knowledge of tulips with some pretty in depth stuff about the botany and history of Holland’s famous flower. Some have commented on the museum now being particularly interesting or engaging - but...More

This is a fun, little museum that is worth a quick visit. It's an easy circuit downstairs that is colorful and easily absorbed - pictures, dioramas, and movie. Nice and light, yet informative! An idea to maximize your touring time and funds: the museum is...More

Very interesting museum about the history and impact of tulips. Especially the records about the most expensive tulips in history is very fascinating. The exhibits are beautifully done and there is a lot to see. We learned a lot during our visit.

This is a very cute museum that is well decorated. The video content is good as well, which I prefer because it means I don't have to read so much. The whole museum takes about 30 minutes to get through and is very reasonably priced....More

Although I expected it to be bigger, the museum is well organised, starting with a video, the history of tulips and tulips in the current times. The museum offers an enriching experience at a very cheap price, and the museum shop is not expensive at...More

I personally love horticulture and all flowers, this museum is so worth it. I believe it cost 5 euro to enter a small, yet history filled museum of Tulips. It was so interesting seeing the origins and displays and their gift shop was so cute....More

We stumbled across it after visiting Anne Frank’s house and entry was covered with the i Amsterdam card. It’s not big and you could look round in half an hour (if that), but it’s well designed and much more interesting than I expected. The shop...More

A very small museum on the iAmsterdam card. It talks about the history of tulips and has a lovely little gift shop.

Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring

<Will the city still be crowded from King’s Day?> No <What day would be best to do the art museums-Wednesday, Thursday or does it not make a difference?> Doesn't make any difference. <Which Museum should I do first in the day?> I always recommend doing the Rijks first. You can easily spend a day in there so if you decide to do so you can just stay. <I think I’ll be using the blue line #5 Tram from near the Marriott to Dam to get most of these tours, is that correct?> Are you getting...More

Planning Day around Anne Frank House visit (10 Replies)
My husband and I were lucky enough to get tickets to visit the Anne Frank House at 1pm on a Wednesday. I was hoping someone could offer some suggestions as to how to spend our morning.We are staying at the Marriott Rennaissance, so it will take about 15 minutes( I think) for us to walk there, and since I am terrified of being late and missing our slot I would like to spend the morning somewhere in the neighborhood.

Best walking route from to Jordaan to Centraal Station (21 Replies)
Hallo, We'll be doing a self-guided walking tour around Jordaan - starting from Dam Square (Royal Palace, Nieuw Kerk, - along Leliegracht and Keizesrgraht - toward Westerkerk and Anne Frank House etc.) The end point will be Amsterdam Cheese or Tulip Museum. Then we'll need to go back to the Centraal Station as our train leaves at 18:00. Could you, please, recommend a return trip which will show us different sights? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

You do know none of those places area actually in the Jordaan right? And the cheese museum is actually just a cheese shop. I suppose that side of the Prinsengracht is the Jordaan though. You say your train leaves at 18:00 but what time will you start walking?
