With the emphasis on tulips, the bulb cultivation and development of both the past and present, are vividly displayed in the museum.
Museum “de Zwarte Tulp” is situated in a restored, old building at the town
centre of Lisse. It shows the history of the Bulb District as well as the origins
and the development of bulb culture.
The museum paints an enthralling picture of the remarkable ‘bulb-to-flower-to-bulb’ cycle by means of: pictures, photos and videos on the working of soil; bulb culture artifacts; shed interiors; and a small specialized library.
A visitor's guide is available in
6 languages. Next to the permanent
exhibition the museum has a number of special exhibitions throughout the year.
A visit to the museum can be easily combined with a visit to Keukenhof flower
gardens, also situated in Lisse.
