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.

Small but informative mini-museum below gift shop across canal from Anne Frank House. Information about development of tulip propagation in Netherlands and startling facts about trading and expense of early bulbs.

I consider a museum to have real artefacts. to Collect and preserve artefacts. This is a shop with an exhibition more than a real musuem

Might be good for children, I didn't find anything in there that I didn't already know and I'm no expert. Only really worth going if you can get in for free with the Iamsterdam card, otherwise not worth it.

This was my first Tulip Museum visit. You enter through the store where you can view and buy all things tulip, from fresh planting bulbs, to tulip inspired decorator items. You pay for the tour at the check-out counter. You begin the tour watching a...More

Small museum and gift shop near the Anne Frank House. Gift shop is at the entrance. Not worth going out of your way for. % Euro admission fee could be better spent elsewhere.

Don't be put off by the crowds in the shop, the museum is quite quiet. No, it's not big, but it's 5€ to get in. Three very informative videos about the history of the tulip and the production of the bulbs up do modern day....More

This is a small museum which gives you brief history of the tulip. That was quite interesting but I'm not sure it was worth the entrance fee and certainly not worth going out of your way to see it. However, it is just across the...More

Conveniently located near the Anne Frank Museum. It was one of my wife's favorite stops in Amsterdam. Beautifully done and educational. Short tour which is well worth the very reasonable admission price. Lovely gift shop.

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.
