“Great place to learn about Dutch history and Delft's treasures”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

The Prinsenhof museum was very interesting. Probably because I live in Delft myself, although I can imagine that it would also be a nice stop for foreign tourists visiting the West of the Netherlands. There were some interactive features in the museum and the whole story line was easy to follow and fun as well. There is a student discount of 50% by the way!

“Interesting Museum”
Reviewed 16 August 2014 via mobile

We had a pleasant time in this museum learning about William of Orange and the beginnings of the modern Netherlands. The exhibits on Delft and Delftware were also quite interesting.

“Unexpected find”
Reviewed 7 August 2014

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality and story telling ability of this small museum in an amazing location. We really wanted mostly to see the building, however the history of William of Orange, as well as Delft was well-presented. The integration of 'story tellers' into the exhibits really brought some potentially dull material to life.

“Impressing to see the history of William of Orange”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

Being Dutch, I learned the history of William of Orange in school. But it was still impressing to see the stairs on which he was assassinated.

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed 2 August 2014

The Prinsenhof looms large in Dutch history because William (the Silent) of Orange lived there during the last years of his life and was assassinated there in 1584. The tour of the museum is interesting especially to history buffs. The entry fee seems high.
