They don't have any Vermeer paintings here; just prints. I knew that going in but was still intrigued. They make a real effort to show different aspects of Vermeer's art, but there's just only so much you can do when the paintings are all elsewhere. I enjoyed the video that showed the restoration process for one of his paintings.

The museum displays very well what it has. Unfortunately it doesn't have very much. All the pictures on display are prints. There are explanations on painting techniques for those who are interested in such things.

It's a small museum with all replicas of Vermeersch works. A nice resume of his life work. I would certainly suggest to have a look inside. Very friendly ladies behind the counter to give very accurate explanations on how to do the tour. I recommend!

I enjoyed learning more about Vermeer at this small museum in Delft, The do a nice job of making exhibits about his life interesting - especially for the younger set - I am glad that I visited it.

While there are no original paintings by Vermeer here in his home town, the museum gives you a wonderful overview of his life and work.

A wonderful opportunity to gain an insight into the skill and genius of this rather enigmatic man. Captivating.

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
