Not all things associated with pot in Holland are of the dubious kind. Here you can see items being crafted in front of your very own eyes. Good for kids for an hour.

Visited the Royal Delft as part of our tour to Delft and The Hague. We were lucky that our tour group wasn't too large. A great experience but the hand painted items were etremely epensive. Worth a visit if you are in the area.

I'm a potter, so this interested me. I was surprised the factory was so little. I was also surprised that prices were so high. I guess I'm not all that familiar with the value of Delft pottery. In glad I stopped, but I don't think I'd recommend unless a one was a collector.

okay, so I loved it. my family not so much. really not worth the price to walk around 5 rooms with audio guide. but the shopping was fab. spent a buck/euro or two. ate lunch in the café and it was yummy.

It was very interesting. The hand painting demonstration was great. The audio track on the videos was a bit fast to be able to take in what they were saying. Restaurant had amazing quiche. Gift shop employees a little pushy given how incredibly expensive the actual hand painted stuff is.

About 45 minutes ride from Amsterdam. Some royal pieces are showcased in the factory. The city of Delft is a short ride from the factory. A very nice old town to walk around. Transportation is convenient and a short train ride brings you back to Amsterdam.

The Royal Dutch Delftware factory was established in 1653 and is now the last remaining Delftware manufacturing factory from the 17th century. The world famous Royal Delftware is still entirely hand painted according to centuries old tradition. The artistry displayed and the variety of Delftware pieces shown is like a museum of Dutch history. Don't miss it if you are... More

This tour was a big disappointment to me... one that I had been so looking forward to but the entire bus was rushed through all together; too large a group to be able to see and hear what the tour guide was explaining. Individuals seriously wanting to learn about the process of creating this wonderful pottery should attend as individuals... More

Any true tourist must make a stop in delft to see some of there world famous porcelain featuring the delft blue. This is the best place to do so, by far. I myself do not care for art whatsoever, but this museum was amazing! 12 euros for an hour audio guide is not a bad deal at all, especially considering... More

We visited on Tues 28 April. Searching for a car park (they are not well signposted) we came across Royal Delft by accident so decided to visit. Good decision! Parking (free) is on the road and we were lucky to get a space. We were given a handset and substantial headphones each and found it easy to use (you press... More
