Tulip Museum Amsterdam

Tulip Museum Amsterdam

As you stroll the streets of Amsterdam, you might notice that there are tulips everywhere! Tulips are the national flower of the Netherlands, even though they originated in the Ottoman Empire. They were brought to Holland in 1593 and became famous because of their extraordinary beauty. Tulips became a status symbol, so people spent more and more money for the bulbs. A “tulip-mania” grew among the people and, in the end, one bulb cost as much as a canal house, or a 10-year income! Even though “tulip-mania” eventually ended, tulips are still a big deal in Holland. “National Tulip Day” is celebrated every January. The owner of the Tulip museum expressed his love for tulips by founding a museum about them.
