  • We were able to tour the factory and see how the Royal Delft is made. It is under renovation right now but we were still able to see most of it. At the end is a gift shop. If you want the hand...

  • 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.
  • Interesting place to visit, unfortunately I arrived just after two coach loads of older people who were a bit slower than me. Well laid out museum and efficient staff in the cafe and shop. A nice place to visit if you have the time.
