Royal Delft has been creating high-quality Delft Blue since 1653. From generation to generation, this age-old craft is passed on and iconic Delft Blue pieces are still made entirely by hand at the factory.
In our factory museum, you will not only discover our history, but also meet the makers of Delft Blue in the factory. Then get inspired during a painting workshop and admire the diverse collection in our shop. For coffee, a delicious lunch or high tea, you are welcome in Brasserie1653.
Royal Delft Museum is open seven days a week from 09:30 to 17:00. You can buy tickets through our website, but it is also possible to buy a ticket at the museum reception.
