First place we visited in Delft and like many others they were taking the opportunity to do some renovation work, so check up when it's finished. The building work didn't intrude and the staff made sure we still enjoyed our visit and compensated any inconvenience with a coffee - nice touch. The visit was very interesting and well laid out...

I found the museum very interesting, from learning about the history of porcelain production in the area (this is the last remaining official factory) to the manufacturing process - and getting to see it first hand. Don't need a lot of time for this museum, but I thought it was a very nice overview of something so famously associated with... More

Interesting place, one can see how the traditional Delft porcelain is crafted and painted, as well as some indicative pieces. The shop is quite expensive, but handcrafted porcelain is a form of art, so it may worth it. There is also a very beautiful garden in the building, worth visiting!

We did mistake of visiting Delft just to visit this porcelain factory. It's not as beautiful as Meissen near to Dresden. Also quite far from railway station. We recommend skip this and instead spend 1 day in Den Haag which has got better attractions mainly Madurodam.

We visited as a family with a 4 year-old and baby and loved our experience. This is a one of a kind rich, historic place which explains the production of the famous Delft blue pottery. The videos are particularly terrific for kids. A great place to buy souvenirs and support the local industry! Beautiful courtyard for a quick snack or... More

Take time to go round this wonderful factory/museum. Speak to the artisans and artists, it's a truly great story of how these individual pieces are created. The love and passion of the staff is inspirational.
