It is located in the Jordaan neighborhood and traces the history of the tulip in the Netherlands. It is packed with interesting information and history about tulips.
From Tulip mania, food, the origin of the flower and even modern day growing and breeding techniques are explained through the multimedia presentations on several LCD screens.
