The tour was honestly nice and one guy in the entrance made sure that we wouldn’t miss anything which was pleasing. It was nice to actually see people working and walk in the warehouse.

Had a nice visit to this museum! The audio guide is included in your ticket (you can either use their set or your own phone) and there were lots of language options too. I did think the price of the ticket was a little high for the experience, would have like to see it more on the 10-13€ range but was glad we attended. Loved the factory tour at the end too! The staff was all around very helpful and friendly too. Would recommend to others visiting the area!
You don't have to particularly like Delft Pottery to enjoy a visit to this iconic factory and museum. It provides a wonderful portrayal of the history of the ceramics and examples of early pieces, along with the process of making the pieces. The factory is surprisingly small and you can get very close up to the Master Artists hand painting each piece and see works in different stages of production. It was really interesting. It is quite a long walk from the station so we took a taxi there. When we were finished the nice lady on the reception phoned the City Shuttle for us. For 3 Euros per person this cute golf buggy took us back to the compact Old Town, which is also a great place to visit.
