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.
