Royal Delft Museum is the home of Delft Blue and Delft Blue pottery. Since we were granted the official museum status in the Netherlands in 2021, the plans have resulted in action to emphasize even more the craft, production, and history of the 400-year-old factory. Delft Blue has been handmade here since 1653 and the building is currently being renovated and additional exhibition rooms are being built.
In addition to a visit to the museum, there are various activities in which you can be creative with Delft Blue. During a workshop, you can paint a tile or a plate yourself, of course with guidance if needed.
We also organize children’s workshops during the school holidays. The children are entertained all afternoon and can get to work with clay and paint in the studio. Participate in the best activities and end the day with some ice cream. (Grand)parents can buy an entrance ticket and walk through the museum and the factory. Of course, they can also watch during the painting workshop.
The Porceleyne Fles – Royal Delft has been creating Delft Blue since 1653. During a visit you will discover the various crafts in the factory, the painter’s room, and in the museum. Read more.
