Nice museum. Not really for kids. The audio tour is very convenient and adds a lot to the experience. You can walk from the old city center but it's rather far, at least 30 minutes. The reception staff is very helpful in getting around and explains everything. There are free lockers, definitely use them.

The museum is a comfortable 15-20 minutes walk from the main train station, alongside some quiet streets and canals. The interactive presentation should be especially fun for kids and young people, packed with interesting facts. The porcelain items you can purchase are beautiful (albeit priced quite steep at times).

This town is so fun to walk in, which is good, since the factory/store is quite a distance from the train station! We meandered and had to ask locals how to find the factory because signs were few and far between. All the locals we spoke with we're happy to help. The selection was quite the assortment from the cheap,... More

You can take an audio tour round the factory and see the history of the factory as well as the whole production process. Afterwards there is a factory shop and a lovely brasserie, which has a beautiful garden. Well worth a visit.

This was a part of the guided tour for us at Amsterdam. Royal Delft is a ceramic factory cum museum cum showroom. It is actually royal blue delft, blue because this is the color they paint on all their wares. The tour guide was a very learned employee of Royal Delft and took us around the place telling us about... More

The Royal Delft Museum and Showroom was on our list of places to visit in The Netherlands. We visited the museum, including displays of historic dining rooms with Royal Delft dinnerware, and watched artisans hand-paint vases and teapots and other Blue Delft ceramics, now Royal Delft. At the end of the tour, the large showroom is open to view and/or... More

Do yourself a favor and find this little spot of heaven. Take a self guided tour. The place is small but I can stand there for hours watching the workers do their thing. They are behind glass walls but it's amazing the intricate work they create and the beauty after it's been glazed is amazing. If you can like something... More

I was not expecting much but enjoyed (more a place for coach tours and not my scene) but the quirky format and accompanying well explained videos @ the start of the almost self guided tour (Head Sets are handed out @ start) made visit enjoyable.
