I mean, it's a Ceramic Factory

It's neither great nor bad. It's a factory where they make ceramics. And it's old. And the ceramics are beautiful, and expensive and make you doubt all of your life choices. (WHY... read more

If you are interested in ceramics and you are in South Holland then you should find your way to the Royal Delft Factory. A sea of blue greets you. We did not go into the (fee-paying) production area for lack of time but a walk round the shop and a discussion with the helpful staff proved instructive. If you are... More

This is a factory located in a nice area about a mile from the Markt. They make a vast assortment of pottery with delicate design. There are various levels of pottery, and price. It is ironic that the Dutch started the factory to compete with Chinese pottery. Now the dutch pottery is outrageously expensive so the average tourist buys the... More

This was such a tourist trap, but we enjoyed it nevertheless. The museum before the factory visit was better than the factory itself where we had to go around by ourselves with an audio-guide. There was no one to ask any questions. A tip - don't go around meal times as you will not see anyone at work, just empty... More

We were very disappointed in this attraction. If you are into pottery, porcelain or the like then I suppose it could be very interesting. They should let you in free but we paid 12.50 Euros each.

(WHY DIDN'T I BECOME A PORCELAIN ARTIST) but that's about it. Some of the older plates/figurines/whatever are really interesting and the story of the company is like half awesome... More

Absolutely fascinating. Well laid out museum and beautiful stories. Had no idea that there were so many different levels of quality within the brand.

Royal Delft factory is porcelain handmade products factory & considered the icon of Delft city that's specialised in creating such high quality Dutch jewels. I highly recommend visiting this place to see and know how they are making these arts and to purchase some of it as gifts and souvenirs but before doing so please check your bank account balance...

Visited Koninklijke Porceleyne Fles for the first time in my life yesterday. The porcelain on display is excellent but for a factory with such a long history there could have been a lot more. Now the entrance fee of €12,50 is just too much. Museumjaarkaart is not valid here, which is a shame. It is clearly set up for foreign... More

We walked from our hotel in town out to the factory and it was a pleasant 20 minute walk. The factory was not too busy when we got there late in the day but there was still some one painting and people working one the molds. The museum was interesting as I didn't know all the things that were made... More
