Plan your visit

Royal Delft Museum has had the official museum status in the Netherlands since 2021 and there are ambitious plans. That is why the museum is going to renew and expand. You can read more about this here.

Discover the world of Delft Blue

Paintbrushes carefully touch the white earthenware, whilst elsewhere clay is poured into handmade moulds. In this pottery, craftsmen have been creating iconic Delft Blue for almost 400 years. Royal Delft, established in 1653, is the last remaining original Delftware factory in Delft from the 17th century that still produces hand painted Delft Blue according to centuries-old tradition. Besides a visit to the factory you get to see our museum with an extensive collection of historic and modern pieces. Discover the history, craftsmanship and innovation of this royal museum during your visit.
