We spent a fun Saturday afternoon at Royal Delft. We took the train from Amsterdam Centraal to Delft and walked to the Royal Delft factory. First we had an excellent lunch in their cafe. Then we took part of the audio tour before going upstairs to do a painting workshop. The workshop will give you tremendous respect for the difficulty... More

The history of the ceramics is very interesting. The detail is amazing. Very informative and all the staff were very friendly. The gift shop had lots of beautiful items for purchase plus some other items on display as well. I love the Delft blue.

A short movie in two rooms and with multiple screens in the second room gives the tour a very fresh, simple and high-tech intro to the making of Royal Delft. The free audio guide is superb with 17 short stories around the track of the tour. Not to superficial and not to deep – perfect! A highlight is the full... More

Took a tour of the factory where they explained the company history, how the painting and baking is done, a visit to their royal gallery and another gallery of some amazing mosaic reproduction of "Night Watch" and of course the shop.

Came for a tour on Wednesday, and thought it was excellent as we were part of a larger group we were taken around the experience, the highlight was the factory and seeing some of the beautiful pieces and also getting the chance to see someone painting in great detail. Such talent. All the staff were very friendly especially in the... More

This factory was the main reason I visited Delft. It is the only survival of the 16th century boom of Dutch ceramics production. The visit itself can seem underwhelming when you have such high expectations, because it is very well renovated, preserved, modernized, so it has lost a bit of the old charm. But as a museum, I suppose that's... More

Well....I knew this would be very touristy and it is. The tour is ok - I wouldn't say it's mindblowing info about how they make the porcelain but it's not terrible either. The tour won't take you more than 30-45 minutes and then it's a huge giftshop where the prices are no better than anywhere else we saw in Holland,... More

10 minute tour of the shop and factory. Interesting to see how much work is involved and see the artists at work, but not really worth the walk or tram ride and walk to get there. Much more interesting things to see in Delft. If you only have a short time in Delft- I would recommend staying in town and... More

This is the only remaining pottery in Delft which was established in the 17th century. One gets to see an informative overview of the process of making an earthenware. One artist is there to demonstrate the painting on an earthenware. Sometimes they offer some workshops. The website of the factory is : http://www.royaldelft.com/index.asp?lang=2 Many historical earthenware are on display here.... More
