I had an excellent guide during the trip. Everything was explained in detail and with humour. I was even able to see some people working on the fly!

This was such a lovely morning. It cost 12 Euro to tour the museum and factory. You are given a personal audio in the language of your choice. You can leave your coat in the cloakroom. You can watch the artist/painters and the craftmen and women in the actual working factory.Everything is hand painted. Your entry ticket gives you 10%... More

I took this tour over the weekend of my trip. It was really neat to see. I enjoyed the animatronic portion and watching the artist in training.

Not to be missed if you are in the area. The tour shows history of the porcelain and takes you by trained painters showing you how they do their work. The factory is open and clearly shows process of creating the fine works. The shop has wide variety and will also ship internationally

I love coming here, at first I have my doubts because I dont like this kind of activities. Them when our host start to telling all the history behind these walls I really love it. We start painting our owns porcelains but we cant take it home right away.

First place we visited in Delft and like many others they were taking the opportunity to do some renovation work, so check up when it's finished. The building work didn't intrude and the staff made sure we still enjoyed our visit and compensated any inconvenience with a coffee - nice touch. The visit was very interesting and well laid out...

I found the museum very interesting, from learning about the history of porcelain production in the area (this is the last remaining official factory) to the manufacturing process - and getting to see it first hand. Don't need a lot of time for this museum, but I thought it was a very nice overview of something so famously associated with... More

Interesting place, one can see how the traditional Delft porcelain is crafted and painted, as well as some indicative pieces. The shop is quite expensive, but handcrafted porcelain is a form of art, so it may worth it. There is also a very beautiful garden in the building, worth visiting!

We did mistake of visiting Delft just to visit this porcelain factory. It's not as beautiful as Meissen near to Dresden. Also quite far from railway station. We recommend skip this and instead spend 1 day in Den Haag which has got better attractions mainly Madurodam.

Thank VikramVI
