Delft Blue for children

Discover the Delft Blue factory

In the past, before there were machines, people did a lot more by hand. This still happens in the factory of Royal Delft. All Delft blue here is made by hand from start to finish. You will see this for yourself during your visit to the museum and the factory. But you will also do things yourself! For example, during the children’s workshop you will paint a Delft blue tile yourself and you will pour clay in the factory. That’s unique! The program even starts with lemonade and ends with an ice cream.

€ 17.50 per child

Children from 6 years old can participate.

Please note: parents may be present during the entire program by purchasing a ticket for the museum themselves. However, the parents do not paint a tile themselves.
