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.

This was included on the "I am Amsterdam" card which I had purchased, which made entrance free. Not sure I would pay to visit. However it was interesting to learn about the history of tulips as well as the planting and harvesting the bulbs. Only took about 20 minutes to visit the museum. If you have the Amsterdam card, I...

Although they do their best this museum isn't really worth a detour to visit, it is very small, and the best bit is the shop. They have some fun items plus a lot of bulbs to purchase.Probably interesting if you are fanatical about tulips!

We accidentally came across the Tulip Museum - it wasn't on any map we had - and I'm glad we did! It is a very sweet little museum that is really interesting and very well set out! It cost us 5 euro to get in which was well worth the money - the entrance is at the back of the... More

This great little museum tells the story of tulips and what they mean to the Netherlands. Starting with the history of the tulip and how they came to Holland, the exhibits move on to the commercial production and the hundreds of varieties available today. The displays are colourful and an introductory video sets the scene. The gift shop is tiny... More

The museum was terrific. Always thought the Netherlands were the only place in the world for tulips - now know I was mistaken. Even though all tulip bulbs come from Holland, I bought a bag to take home to a friend. Canada and the Netherlands have a special relationship, and every year we receive 20000 tulip bulbs, which bloom at... More

We were looking for something to visit that was both interesting and cheaper than the most well-known Amsterdam monuments. We were not disappointed with the Tulip Museum, for it showcased the history of the tulip since its arrival to Europe and helped us understand its importance for the Netherlands in a relaxed and fun way. A nice break from the... More

At €5 euros each it was good to watch the two short videos about where tulips came from and how they are now produced but the rest of the museum just replicated the same information. If your a tulip fan it's worth it, but you may also be disappointed. The shop is worth a visit and has all things tulip... 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.
