    Museum a bit poor and simple, uninteresting. Very nice the shop from which you pass to get in.

    I came for the museum and didn't expect a store with such variety. The museum portion was fun. It was very informing of the history of tulips in Amsterdam. I spent over an hour in the shop portion deciding what souvenirs to bring back home :) Staff is very kind and helpful

    Small and price is cheap. But comprehensive enough about Tulips history.

    Nice to see the evolution of the tullips. It's a typical dutch museum. After visiting the museum you can buy some tullips.
