A trip to Delft would not be complete without a visit to royal delft pottery. Here you can witness the hand painting of pottery and shown the difference between hand painted and machine painted pottery. in addition to the authentic hand painted pieces, there is also a souvenir shop where one can purchase gifts. Mailing of products offered at a... More

Even if you are not big into porcelain, this museum is really good quick stop. It's a little bit outside of the city center. I went with my family which includes 7 year old, 6 year old and a 2 year old boy and my husband who really wasn't thrilled to go but we all enjoyed it. The audio part... More

On Thurs., 23 April, we took a train from Amsterdam to Delft and asked directions to the market at the Nieukerk. When there we stopped in the various Royal Delft shops to see their stock and price their items. We stopped in at the TI to the left of the Nieukerk and asked for the best way to get to... More

A well organised tour full of interesting facts. I can now tell the difference between transfers and painted Delft Pottery. The pained ones had only symbols on the base. They say you get what you pay for in life, beautiful pottery but very expensive.

You know you want to buy some Delft porcelain, so get the real stuff. How often will you be there, really? The factory is a lot of fun from the "Delft" Fiat outside through the factory tour to the shop. The 12 euro tour is interesting if you have the slightest, and I mean very slightest interest in porcelain, if... More

We combined this with a day to The Hague by train. It was a very nice visit and the audio tour was very good and you can walk and ready everything at you own leisure. The length of the tour was just right, and we enjoyed a coffee and scone at the coffee shop afterwards while deliberating what to buy... More

The self tour with a listening devise was not available 4 years ago, plus the museum has modernised somewhat. But the parking has got worse due to the vast amount of building in Rotterdamseweg. Lots of tour buses now. Down side is still the wheelchair ramps are far far to steep and breech UK & US requirement. Very much about... More

Guide very good but the tour was too fast we were not able to peruse all exhibits and read all info. Maybe it was because they allowed too many of us on the tour at the same time (38) when they say at the entrance max 30 people. the mutli media rooms were too small.
