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.

All info is in English and easy to read - writing not too small. Learnt some really interesting facts and the visuals were really... More

A very small museum in the back of a flower shop. Their emphasis is on the shop part of that sentence. The shop itself is truly one of a kind. You can buy tulip and other flower bulbs that are packaged for EU use or for taking into other countries (including the US and Canada). They had so many beautiful... More

From the moment you step into the museum via the shop the last gorgeous smell of flowers hits you. I would urge everyone to visit this museum, it's filled with history and some gorgeous flowers and photographs to look at. Entry is only €5 per adult, €3 for a student.

We stopped by this museum while walking along the Jordaan district. It is located very close to the Anne Frank House, on the opposite side of the canal. While the visit to the museum itself was ok, we found the shop at the entrance to be really nice... lots of tulips bulbs and souvenirs! The museum itself is quite small... More

The shop has a lovely display of bulbs and other souvenir type items for sale. The staff is very helpful and they know which bulbs you can bring into your country, especially the USA since there are restrictions. There is also a museum for an extra charge which we did not visit because of the lack of time we had... More

We stumbled upon this museum after the Anne Frank house. The museum was OK, but the storefront was really cool. Opportunity to buy bulbs of many different plants, not just tulips. Would recommend if you find yourself walking by.

Pop in – it only takes 30 – 40 minutes to learn where Tulips come from, and many other interesting facts. Entrance is free on an “I Amsterdam Card”

This was a cute little museum that teaches about the history of tulips. Very cheap. €10 for a family. It only takes about 20-25 minutes to go through, and you get to learn something new for the day!

Staying in Jordaan

Neighbourhood 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.
