This museum offers you the understanding about tulip flower bulbs culture thru' interactive mode and also there is an audio visual played in the background to make you understand about tulip plantation process as a whole. Its an interactive exhibition which complete family can enjoy.

Quite a small museum, but with an interesting special about wallpaper with flower design. Also the history of flowerbulb growing in Holland. Not much for children though. Well worth the time if you are in Lisse.

This was a really fascinating museum which went into the history of bulb-growing (particularly for tulips). The staff were friendly and helpful, it had a good gift shop and a beautiful display of paintings.
