This original pottery factory offers an all in one experience. A museum with an overview of different forms of Dutch pottery through the ages. A workshop setting in which you see the painters at work. You can walk into the crafts hall in which different stages of pottery are visible. And the museum showroom provides for great pottery (vases, tiles,... More

Take a tour of the factory and watch artist create works of art. Seeing the hand crafted one of a kind Delftware. Walking through in a group or by yourself is going into the culture. Seeing how much work goes into each piece of pottery is awe inspiring. The gift shop has everything for every budget.

A very well presented Museum with many examples of Delft ware over time... and it's not all blue! Take some time to relax in the Garden, perhaps with some Coffee and Cake from the Café.

This is the last remaining Delft pottery factory. It's also a museum, provides workshops to paint, has a large showroom to purchase products as well as a small café. We took a train to Delft and it was really easy to walk to from the central station. We also signed up for a painting workshop (I'm a total novice) and... More

We were brought to the Royal Delft factory as part of the tour to Delft. A demonstration on how the potteries were made was interesting and well presented. Then there was the obligatory tour to their shop, which was nice as we got to bring these delicate pieces in our already bulging suitcases. Luckily they survived the journey.

Only decided to visit on our last day in Delft as we had 5 euros off the price of the tickets! The audio guide was interesting and not too long as were the 2 videos shown. Helped us understand why the prices of Royal Delft are so high! We visited on a Sunday so not much was happening in the... More

This visit was included in our grand Holland tour and it is actually not to be missed. There is a lot of Delft history on display as well as the guided tour. It takes four years of dedication to become a Delft painter. There is, as always, a gift shop which was selling some items at bargain prices. The tour... More

Half a day tour package, visit to Royal Delft factory. A nice introduction and presentation of how these items are made. How important this traditional items to Dutch was well explained. Around 15 minutes over view and presentation. Some the items are quite big and huge and could imagine how much effort and work would have been put in. Appreciable... More

I love porcelain and I was looking for an authentic place to learn/shop Delft porcelain... The museum was quite satisfying... The garden of the building is a heaven... Take your time to meditate in this heavenly garden with your coffee after the visit... The shop offers a great variety of products. The original hand-painted pieces are quite expensive but you...

Tour is using an audio tour and available in many languages. The first 2 short films were shown in the language that everyone agreed on but the commentary was available on the audio tour in your language. Great in-site into the history and processes. Interesting to see the pottery through the ages and the different uses of ceramics.
