Amsterdam Tulip Museum – Overview
Visit the Amsterdam Tulip Museum and follow the story of Holland’s most famous flower!
Experience the history of the tulip, from its origin on the windswept mountains in Central Asia to the worldwide phenomenon it is today.
Greed, desire, anguish and dedication all played their part in the development of the tulip.
First, the tulip had a place of honour in the gardens of the Sultans in Istanbul. Later, the flower became the object of unprecedented speculation in 17th century Holland. It was during the period known as Tulipmania that bulbs changed hands for the price of a house, leading eventually to a disastrous financial collapse. After this period, the cultivation of tulips did not stop. On the contrary, stripped of all its excessiveness the tulip trade now developed into a normal business. Your visit to the Tulip Museum in Amsterdam ends with a film that not only allows you a view of the Dutch tulip fields but also takes you on a visit to a modern tulip farm. You’ll also have the chance to get yourself a souvenir at the Tulip Museum shop. For instance, a coffee mug, ornaments, apparel, and much more!
The small private museum which is dedicated to the Netherlands’ favourite flower is right across the bridge from the Anne Frank House.
Not only for gardening and flower enthusiasts, but also for children, the museum is worth a visit. All the colourful pictures will stimulate the kids’ fantasies and they will be excited to watch the movies and explore all the small rooms. Dive into the history of this beautiful flower and learn all about it. It surely is a must-do when in the Netherlands!
