Since obtaining the official status of a museum in the Netherlands in 2021, Royal Delft Museum has ambitious plans. We want to put even more emphasis on the craft, the production, and the history of the nearly 400-year-old factory. That is why we are currently renovating the building. Among other things, there will be an additional exhibition hall where temporary exhibitions will be held.
Royal Delft Museum will be open for the public to visit. Only the routing and the exhibition areas have been slightly modified. Phase one will be completed after the summer. Until then, everyone is welcome in the museum, the factory, Brasserie1653 and the shop. We apologize for any inconvenience caused, we hope for your understanding.
On this page you will regularly see and read updates about the renovation and its progress.
