The Amsterdam Tulip Museum, just across the Prinsengracht Canal from Westerkerk and the Anne Frank House


  • Title:  The Amsterdam Tulip Museum, just across the Prinsengracht Canal from Westerkerk and the Anne Frank House
  • Description:  Just across the canal from The Anne Frank House and the famed Westerkerk Dutch Renaissance church and carillon tower is a small dynamic museum focused entirely on tulips. Only in Amsterdam! The museum is housed in a canal house at Prinsengracht 116 in the charming Jordaan neighborhood. With approximately 2,200 square feet of newly-updated shop and exhibit spaces, the museum is dedicated to the surprising and flamboyant history of the tulip. Varied interactive exhibits by local artists trace the famous flower's journey from its origins in the wild highlands of the Himalayas to its arrival at the lavish court of the Ottoman Sultan Suleyman the Magnificent to its popularity in the home gardens of today. A visitor favorite is the exhibit that explores the famous Tulipmania period of the1630s. It was in the century known as The Dutch Golden Age - when Amsterdam was the center of world trade, and Dutch art, science and maritime and military strength held sway worldwide - that the tumultuous tulip trade led to one of history's most infamous market crashes. The Amsterdam Tulip Museum is located at Prinsengracht 116, 1015 EA Amsterdam - Netherlands, +31 (0)20 421 00 95. The museum and shop are open daily from 10 am to 6 pm, except King's Day (April 27) and Christmas Day (December 25). Museum admission is 5 Euros for adults, 3 for students and 15 for families of 3 or more. I amsterdam City Card and Holland Pass are accepted. No admission is necessary to visit the museum shop.
