Museum De Zwarte Tulp - Review
This is a fascinating museum, detailing the history of these lands, and how the tulip affected its growth, economy and society. It also explores the science behind how the flowers are bred, and how the flower has influenced art. The building in which the museum is housed used to be a tulip bulb storage facility. Inside, the museum looks more like someone's intimate personal studio gallery than it does an exhibition space. You will find drawings and photographs of tulips, and the tools old tulip harvesters used to work with. A particularly lovely exhibit explains the legend of the black tulip, how it drove the 17th century tulip mania, and why no such flower exists.

Museum De Zwarte Tulp, Lisse Reviews
We enjoyed this museum. Tulips are obviously important in this area but it really brought that importance to life, and gave an interesting history. Informative and fun exhibits, and audio in a number of languages. Very friendly staff.
Lovely surprise - I had low expectations and I was happy to see so many items and history and activities around the flower industry in the Lisse area. It was well worth my time!
We enjoyed our time at this museum. Unfortunately there wasn’t enough English translation for us to understand everything, but that has be expected when we had very limited Dutch!
Small museum , but you really learn a lot for tulips. Highly recommended. The Town is small, but very quiet and relaxing. Come for a sunny weekend afternoon. you won't regret it.
Awesome! There is much more to a tulips history & personality than I ever knew- & I'm half Dutch! They originated in Turkey, were used as currency in the past, etc. Working artifacts show step by step the life & harvest of a bulb in the old days, and much of what's displayed can touched- a plus for kids. Charming gift shop, nice variety & nice prices too! Staff helpful and kind. Really nice for adults & children alike. It's just right for a tulip museum. The location in Lisse is also full of charm.
