Countdown to Tulip Time -

May 6, 7, & 8, 2021!

Want to stay up-to-date on all things Pella and Tulip Time?

You're invited to spend a day with the Dutch when you visit the Pella Historical Society and Museums. From displays of Pella's earliest years to unique gifts in our museum shop, you'll truly experience a touch of Holland on the prairie.

The story of 800 immigrants who founded a town on the prairie, the beauty of the costumes from their native Netherlands, the boyhood home of Wyatt Earp, thousands of tulips in an explosion of color, the tallest working windmill in the United States... You'll find it all here!

We promise that your day will be erg uitstekend!

What's New at Pella Historical?

King's Day, or Koningsdag, celebrates the King's birthday in the Netherlands. Join us as we bring the party to Pella! The 2021 Tulip Court will be handing out goodie bags for kiddos in front of the Vermeer Windmill. With the goodies inside, you can celebrate King's Day at home! Don't forget to wear orange! Please wear your mask and practice social distancing.
