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 - Write a Review

  • 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.

  • Mooie overzichtelijke tentoonstelling! Bijzonder vond ik dat sommige schilderijen laag hingen. Het was net of zo het bloembolleveld op kon lopen!!

  • Wat een verrassend museum. Een bezoekje waard!
