The history of the tulip from its origin in Central Asia to the worldwide phenomenon it is today, you will find it at Amsterdam Tulip Museum and shop. Greed, desire, anguish, all played their part. From a place of honour in the gardens of the Sultans, the tulip became the object of speculation in 17th century Holland, the period of Tulipmania. It was after this period that the tulip trade developed into a normal business. Your visit to the museum ends with a film which allows you a view of the Dutch tulip fields including a visit to a modern tulip farm.
The shop connected to the museum offers a unique selection of flowerbulbs in combination with an array of quality tulip souvenirs.
