Delft Blue for children

Discover the Delft Blue factory

In the past, before there were machines, people did much more by hand. This is still happening in the Royal Delft factory. All Delft blue is made here 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 be casting clay in the factory. That’s a unique experience!

€ 19.50 per child

Children from 7 years old can participate. The program will take about 1.5 hours.

Please note: parents can be present during the entire program by purchasing a ticket for the museum themselves (free entry with a museum card or Rotterdam pass). You visit the museum together, but the painting is only for the children, but (grand) parents are of course allowed to watch.




The maximum capacity per workshop is 20 children or persons.

*The children’s workshop is a DIY workshop.
