We were very lucky to find Maria (the guide) in the old church. Without her, I believe that the center would have been very disappointing. They show all his works in posters and... read more

We were very lucky to find Maria (the guide) in the old church. Without her, I believe that the center would have been very disappointing. They show all his works in posters and some guided information. I strongly recommend to go there with a professional guide that will show you all the symbols in the pictures and the parts of...

I have traveled the world, been to a lot of sites/museums, but never have I though I have wasted my money, until now. Luckily I got a discounted price for myself and my gf, so we only had to pay 5 euros. This may be the worst run establishment in the world, puts shame to Vermeer. Absolutely none of his... More

Save your money and watch rim's Vermeer on Netflix which has far more information. They don't accept credit cards in Delft at all, only local bank cards. This made out visit a short one even though we had lovely weather. Even the parking garage did not take Visa, although it said it did. It was like the twilight zone.

Only go to this museum if you want to learn about Vermeer. There is not much to really see. But I enjoyed going through the history of all his paintings, seeing a replica of each, particularly seeing where they were in the world. You definitely get a sense of what he might have been like. I'd say the 2nd floor... More

Everyone is quick to point out that the Vermeer Centrum has no original paintings. Well, the Center has made a virtue of this limitation---so much that learning opportunities here are much better than at traditional art museums. For example, in the excellent section "Vermeer's Studio," a series of cubicles beautifully illustrate the artist's mastery of light. Real paintings could not... More

This is where you can learn all there is to know about the artist Vermeer, best known for his portrait entitled,' The Girl with the Pearl Earring', although there are at least 55 paintings by him that are known about. Most are about love and many feature 'girl; in the title. There is a film to begin with about Delft... More

The museum gave a great overview of Vermeer's life and the paintings that he did. I especially liked the exhibits on light and perspective. Well done!
