Wonderful history of Delft pottery.

Very interesting tour. I was disappointed as we thought we were getting a live tour guide. But we were handed mobile devices to scan at each exhibit to hear the English description. When I questioned the attendant she said this was the English tour. Also as we were listening to our devices a tour group would come up and the live guide for that tour would start talking in another language and it was very difficult to hear my own device. Very distracting.

Informative tour of the museum and the workshop. Well-stocked museum shop with very friendly staff. Disadvantage: only 2 entry times per day for this package. We were in Delft in October. The off-season was due to only a few visitors on site, so we would have liked to have had more flexibility with the entry times.

Really interesting museum and factory tour. Owing to coronavirus we were the only people on the tour with an audio guide which was great. Recommend going now when it’s quiet!

It is an interesting activity. Since you are going to Delft, it is good to take advantage to visit the factory.

Very nice visit where you can see the creativity of the artists

Enjoy the visit and a coffee in a very pretty garden
