  • Enjoyed learning about the history of Delft Pottery and nice to browse the shop afterwards. Agree, that it’s a bit pricey for what is on show but glad we visited

  • The show is marginally interesting, but definitely too expensive for what it's worth. It basically celebrates the history of the firm, which is ok, but the cost is higher than the Uffizi or the...

  • Friendly staff, and a good show of different styles of china. We totally grasped the reasons of the expensive Delft china, and even more when it is hand-painted by experienced artists. A suggestion though: it would be great to offer kids audioguides in other languages than Dutch. Many foreign tourists come to the Netherlands with their children and it was really good there was a passionate volunteer in the factory to explain the process, otherwise our daughter would not have had a clue. And we're fortunate that she understands English.
  • Beautiful and interesting museum and shop introducing royal delft. Really enjoyed the movie experience to understand the history of royal delft and then better enjoy the museum! I liked that the audio was informative but not too long in the self guided section. Perfect cafe for a coffee after your visit and a gift shop you could spend an hour in!
