Love the shop! Wasn’t able to do the museum. Did shop for gifts, the wooden tulips were a big hit with everyone! My biggest regret was not to buy tulips to bring home. Will not make that mistake on my next visit!

The museum is downstairs at a flower store. It has nice coverage of the tulips origins (but they neglect to mention wild tulips in the middle east) and interesting part about the tulips craze in Netherlands past. It also includes a VR experience. We enjoyed it...

A very interesting small museum. Reasonably priced for the size of it. It’ll take you about 20-30mins to go round. The shop is very nice as well.

I was very keen to visit here and so my lovely teenagers indulged me. What an acute disappointment! The shop was actually very nice, but the so called museum consisted of one tiny room with some info on the origins of the Dutch tulip trade, a tiny room with photos of tulips and a tinier room with a short video. I admit that I was abit miffed before we went in (the rudest woman in Amsterdam works there) but even so! Don't waste time in the museum, visit the shop and then take yourself off to the Houseboat museum! …

Sarah, So sorry you liked the shop but were disappointed by the Museum. Both our shop and and museum generally score high marks - as can be seen in other reviews - so perhaps as you say your unhappy experience with a staff member colored your response. We make an honest effort to tell the Story of the Tulip and have worked hard over the years to improve the exhibition. By your comments it seems you may have missed the 5 small rooms of exhibition down the stairs. Again, apologies for your unhappy experience and we wish you well.

It is a small museum concentrating on the history of the tulips and how the tulip bulbs were brought to the Netherlands from Turkey and later on cultivated. As tulips are my favourite flowers, it was quite interesting to watch the few videos presented in the museum of how the tulips are grown nowadays in Holland. I did enjoy it.…
