Limited opening (Closed Monday and only open between 13:00 and 17:00 on other days). good exhibits. Description cards in every room informing of exhibits and background. Some DVD presentations in multi language, others only in Dutch which is not helpful to non dutch speakers. well laid out and informative.

Speak to the volontares who work there, they will tell you much more about the museum and the cultivation of tulips. In teh museum shop... More
