Lovely pottery, nice displays, but a little smaller than expected. I enjoyed the visit and planned to purchase a nice souvenir, but ended up with sticker shock and a simple key chain.

This is a very well rounded exhibition with coffee shop, article shop and comprehensive multimedia tour. Starts with 2 films then you proceed thtough self guided part showing handpainting in action plus the factory at work. Good value with caring and patient staff throughout. Items in shop not cheap, very few 'specials' but then this is 'the real thing'. Well... More

Great visit and pleasantly surprised here. Didn't expect that I would enjoy this but this museum has a lot of history and the pottery was great and watching the employees at work and their demonstration was awesome

I got to see the whole crafting process in the factory and... More

The place is amazing, it takes you through the history of the "Delfts blauw" and you even can have a peak of the real artists making the Delfts blue. The gallery is astonishing as is the warehouse. A must see for everyone that has a feeling and heart for this porcelain.

We did the experience tour which was conducted by one of the Royal Delft staff. There is so much if history in this place all connected to the making of the city of Delft. The tour also included a peek inside the factory where the artists are at work and we thought that was a very good insight into how... More

I enjoyed this tour because it was both informative and interesting. If you buy tickets for the "experience" then there is also a little video explaining the history of Delft Blue pottery, as well as the historical process that has been maintained until today. There is a painter at the start of the tour who will answer any questions you... More

Self guided tour allows you to go at your own pace. A nice part of Dutch history here in Delft. Too many lovely things to choose from in the showroom. Very polite staff
