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.
From a place of honour in the gardens of the Sultans in Istanbul the tulip 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.
