  • 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...

  • I really enjoyed my visit here. We paid around €23 for two adults and got audio tours, because they are renovating I felt this didn’t follow the normal order. I love the architecture in the building and enjoyed seeing the factory. I bought a few things in the shop, all in all I spent about 1 hour here before we did the shop.
  • The day I came the factory was closed, but we got half price admission because of this. We were able to watch the 10 mins movie on the history of the museum (highly recommend), checked out a room full of the collections from past and present, and watched a painter in action. The garden is small but beautiful. If you want to see the factory, best call before hand. My sister and I spent about 1.5-2 hours here.
