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.

We stumbled upon this museum after the Anne Frank house. The museum was OK, but the storefront was really cool. Opportunity to buy bulbs of many different plants, not just tulips. Would recommend if you find yourself walking by.

Pop in – it only takes 30 – 40 minutes to learn where Tulips come from, and many other interesting facts. Entrance is free on an “I Amsterdam Card”

This was a cute little museum that teaches about the history of tulips. Very cheap. €10 for a family. It only takes about 20-25 minutes to go through, and you get to learn something new for the day!

My Mom and I had a wonderful time at this museum! It's small enough that you can move through it in less than 30 minutes if you choose too. But if you want to immerse yourself for a longer time in the history and culture of the tulip trade, then the educational content and exhibit design will definitely facilitate that... More

I would never have known there was a Tulip Museum if I hadn’t seen a sign on a charming houseboat in a canal across from the Anne Frank House. The sign said that the museum was 100 meters away and had an arrow pointing in the correct direction. The store front indicated that it was the Amsterdam Tulip Museum, but... More

As we arrived early for our pre booked visit to the Anne Frank museum we took a 2 minute walk and arrived at the Amsterdam Tulip museum. We did not know what to expect but we were very surprised and learnt a lot about the tulip trade in Amsterdam from the growing of tulips and bolts to the selling of... More

The museum was only 10 euros for a family of four which I think was very reasonable. The displays are all done really well - lots of clear information in Dutch and English. Some interactive sections too. Only needs 30 mins - 1 hour, a good thing t do if waiting for your slot at the Anne Frank House as... More

Nothing really special below in the basement (mini museum) unless you really, really, really want to learn about the history. Seems like an exhibit more than a museum - it's not free (you could consider it a donation). The shop is okay but it's not really a must see attraction.

Go through the shop to the museum where there is an interesting section on the history of tulips from where they originated from to how they were used as "coinage". A nice shop where you can buy bulbs and books

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.
