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 walked by this little place several times before going in. I am so glad we did. It is a sweet little museum that teaches you all about tulips but in a quick and fun way. So glad we decided to go in.

Returned here and enjoyed once again. Spoke with the manager who was very helpful and advised us on the purchase of bulbs. Well worth a visit.

There is a "tour" that costs 5€ and it did not appear to be anything special. We opted to walk through the rows of tulip bulbs and admire the flowers.

We were told you can't visit Amsterdam and not go to the Tulip Museum, so we did! A small place full of amazing tulips that I never thought they exist! We picked one to bring back home but were advised to chose from the certified ones to bring back home, so we did!

I visited the museum from UK in January 2016 with my wife. After looking around the museum we bought a couple of packs of bulbs. These were planted as per the instructions when we got home. Only 50% of the bulbs flowered and the other 50% had rotted to mush. I contacted the museum to explain and ask how I... More

This museum is reasonably priced (around £5) and beautifully set out. Spread over 3 floors in a lovely old canalside house, there is plenty to see and learn. The museum is fairly small overall but there is enough to occupy and hold interest for an hour or so. The gift shop is a real treat - packed with a huge... More

Staying in Jordaan

Neighborhood Profile
Jordaan
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.
