I visited this factory as a part of a full-day Dutch Countryside tour. Although the facilities were clean, open and well-maintained and the staff were welcoming and helpful, there wasn't anything particularly memorable about this visit. Go ahead and visit, if only to say that you've visited a Delft Pottery factory in the Netherlands.

Great place to go and gives you a good background of how porceylane is made, plus how to differentiate between original Delft blue and non-original. The museum is also airconditioned, which was good for the hot day it was when I was there. People are also friendly there. The only drawback is perhaps the cost of the ticket in comparison... More

I went there as lonely planet gide says that this was the main point of interests in Delft. However, I would say that there are more interesting things in Delft than this factory. The church itself and its tower is much more interesting and even cheaper. The cost of the entrance 12,5€ does not worth for the vale. Rijks museum... More

I learned a lot by going to Delft. Fortunately I was told how to read the symbols on the underside of the items to see which are actually produced and when from the Royal Delft factory. There are many different kinds of Delft and not all are Royal Delft.

The self-guided museum tour was very interesting as we walked by the actual people working on the pottery. The museum is air-conditioned so it's a good place to be on a hot day. Very worthwhile to learn about this.

I toured here many years ago and stopped this time just to visit the shop. I absolutely love Delft pottery and there is a great selection to choose from. The staff is very helpful here and the prices were very reasonable. I was able to get Christmas ornaments for all of my family and my kids will appreciate these heirlooms... More

Interesting tour. You learn how Delft pottery has been made for centuries,including watching an artist at work and the factory. I really enjoyed my stop there. Have lunch or a snack in the cafe overlooking the garden-beautiful view and very relaxing.

We were warmly welcomed and enjoyed a fascinating tour, watching quietly skilled craftsfolk at work. The shop helped us with some tiles to finish our new kitchen, and we enjoyed a light lunch. Thoroughly recommended!
