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.

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

We enjoyed seeing all the different tulip bulbs and bringing a few home. This was a cute shop to go into during our time in Amsterdam

Ticket price goes from 3€ for students to 5€ for adults. Not so much to see "in person", it is more of tulip story shown on paper and videos. But it's interesting in some kind of way, it wasn't total waste of money and time :)

A lot of pictures but hardly any real tulips in the museum! Not a great deal of information given and the props that were out looked like it had literally been printed and placed about. You can easily bypass this attraction.

Didn't actually go into the museum but do recommend going to see the diversity of tulips available. For those travelling from North America, they have a selection that have been approved for you to bring back.

Staying in Jordaan

Neighbourhood 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.
