The Story of the Tulip. The museum features exhibits and films devoted to the tulip, the unofficial national flower of The Netherlands. From Sultans of the Ottoman Empire, Dutch Merchants of the Golden Age, to gardeners today, the tulip has captivated people around the world for centuries. This fascinating flower has inspired artists and brought great wealth and even economic ruin to people who have fallen under its spell. Explore the tulip's history and discover the remarkable journey the flower bulb has taken from the wilds of the Himalayan highlands to a garden like yours. Conveniently located in the Jordaan district of historic Amsterdam near the Anne Frank House.

Definitely not worth the price of admission. Not many objects in here to look at. Also very basic information on tulip mania in the sixteen hundreds which I was hoping to learn more about.

Think of Amsterdam and you think of Tulips, and this is the time of year for Tulips. However, the Tulip Museum is the history of Tulips, so a lot of pictures. Its a small Museum, its not VanGogh Museum or Rijks Museum (works by Dutch Masters), but you will enjoy Tulips (pictures).

Alright listen, you can't be expecting buckets of excitement from a museum like the Tulip museum or you'll just end up disappointed. It is exactly as advertised, a tulip museum. My husband and I came here because we like to give ourselves a little break from visiting buckets of great art in new cities. When you walk into this museum,... More

You came here for tulips? Well you came to the wrong place. Came for PICTURES of tulips? Well come on in. The 0.2 square foot museum offered little in the way of flowers- kinda surprising based on the name, huh? Confused? So were we. On the bright side, it was free with the Amsterdam City Card. Plus, the staff was... More

Myself and my mum stumbled upon this lovely little museum while waiting for the queuing to start at Anne Franks House and we are glad we did. The museum is somewhat hidden by the cute shop, which stocks a variety of tulip merchandise including bulbs. The museum is well laid out and offers a host of interesting and unusual information...

This little museum is set out in a really nice way and tells the history of the tulip in an informative but not stuffy way. One thing I particularly appreciated was that in each of the museum's rooms, there were plenty of seats available for visitors to sit on. We were both glad of this as it can be quite... More

All info is in English and easy to read - writing not too small. Learnt some really interesting facts and the visuals were really... More

A very small museum in the back of a flower shop. Their emphasis is on the shop part of that sentence. The shop itself is truly one of a kind. You can buy tulip and other flower bulbs that are packaged for EU use or for taking into other countries (including the US and Canada). They had so many beautiful... More

From the moment you step into the museum via the shop the last gorgeous smell of flowers hits you. I would urge everyone to visit this museum, it's filled with history and some gorgeous flowers and photographs to look at. Entry is only €5 per adult, €3 for a student.

Staying in Jordaan

Neighborhood Profile
One of Amsterdam’s most preferred outdoor markets and some of the city’s favorite watering holes are but two of the many reasons to save ample time for a stroll through this especially convivial warren of narrow streets with its unfair share of quirky shops and quality galleries. Historically a haven for the working class and emigrants, these days the Jordaan is better known as an enclave for artists and designers. As popular as the Jordaan is as a destination for locals and out-of-towners alike, the area never feels particularly touristy or overrun with outsiders. A highlight even for long-time Jordaan residents, be sure to accept any invitation to step within one of the area’s beloved courtyards or to have a sneak peek inside one of its many working studios.
