Description

By the time you leave this Royal Delft Experience, you'll be an earthenware know-it-all, thanks to your audio guide. This experience is jam-packed with facts (and pottery) as you tour the factory where the world-famous Royal Delft pottery is all still made by hand, according to 19th-century traditions.

Did you know that the iconic blue Delft earthenware is actually painted in black - it only turns blue once it's fired! And that's just the tip of the paintbrush... there's plenty of fascinating facts to learn when you spend that day at the Royal Delft Experience with an audio guide.

Watch the craftsmen doing crafty things, check out awesome ceramic collections few get to see and explore the changing temporary exhibitions.

Nouveau Blue: from vision to realization (28 March - 30 September 2018)

To celebrate 365 years of iconic earthenware design, Royal Delft's newest exhibition traces the history and achievements of this iconic company. As well as rare ceramics and industry portfolios, the exhibition invites one lucky visitor to contribute to a unique tile painting every day – it's your chance to be a part of history!

Insider tip

Take the time to catch some rays - and see the intriguing architectural ceramics - in the courtyard. It's well worth your time!

I enjoyed the visuals but felt like the depth of information I would have liked just wasn’t there.

Interesting, informative exhibition of delightful Delft pieces, with a well-produced movie, a lovely central garden exhibit, a factory visit, cafe and shop.
Would recommend.
