After being told that it was a "highlight", we stopped by en route to Rotterdam. Nothing really exceptional unless one is a DELFT Pottery enthusiast. Everywhere in Netherlands one can see the numerous showrooms offering these pottery products till one sees blue. I would not go there specifically but the coffee was good.

The entrance to the museum includes a free audio guide. You get to see a master craftsman at work and explanations of the works of art. But, the element of curiosity and interest isn't brought out in the guide and the narrations are basically read out. You get to see the factory floor but not anything beyond that. Would've loved...

This was a highlight of our day in The Hague area.The tour of the factory was fascinating and the Guide excellent.There was the opportunity to try to make some.This may explain why there are cheaper seconds to buy at the end!.I will never forget the tourist who turned quickly in the souvenir area, when her handbag smashed one exhibit to...

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
