Museum gives a very visual history of Blue Delf and why and how it became an important Dutch industry. They also offer you a chance to try your hand at making something yourself, this should be reserved in advance as numbers are limited. Bit of a walk out of town but well worth the effort.

The Royal Delft factory tour is a must see when visiting The Netherlands. The facility is modern and the tour is well designed. It has a fascinating history and the staff are professional and passionate. The museum pieces are spectacular. Be prepared to shop in knowledge that pieces are original and not copies.

Although twice as expensive to tour as the spectacular churches in Delft, the beautiful pottery and craftsmanship along with the history of the Royal Delft Company is a great experience that will not hurt your wallet too badly unless you decide to take some authentic Royal Delft Pottery home with you. We chose some smaller items being sure they had... More

The Royal Delft Factory is about 15 minutes from the town centre by public transport. We bought a Tuk-Tuk ticket, 2 euros, from the Information Office in Delft. The Tuk-Tuk will drop you off anywhere on the return, a plus for us as we had to get to the main train station. We waited an hour for a Tuk-Tuk &... More

We visit just after 09:00, few people in the venue. The audio guide tour works perfectly. Nachtwacht was breathtaking. Rest of the tour was interesting, informal and everywhere the personnel was very friendly and helpful. Cost of the real hand painted pieces of art is expensive - just an indication of what the genuine article cost compared to what one... More

Visited Royal Delft about a week ago. This is a self guided tour (which i was unaware of before visiting). Initially the tour started off a little boring (or perhaps so because i was not prepared for a self-guided tour), but as we went along it got more and more interesting - actually by room number 2, i loved the...

This was one of those things that I knew would be memorable, and by making reservations for the tour and tile painting class I'll have a fantastic memory always! We did use our museum card which discounted to admission cost to the museum. The tour was good, they gave a good explanation of the history of Delft. We did have... More

This was actually pretty interesting to see. Can't say I am much of a pottery person but it was interesting to see how it is created and some of the history behind it. ... We actually grabbed a plate while we were there.

The tour has an English option, and it's a self-guided tour, so we were able to spend as much time as we wanted in given areas. We went on a Sunday which was a bummer because the potters weren't there. Thus, we didn't get to see them crafting anything. We didn't realize this as we were making our plans to... More
