Royal Delft: Delftblue Factory and Museum

1. Royal Delft: Delftblue Factory and Museum

Royal Delft, established in 1653, is the last remaining original Delft Blue factory from the 17th century in Delft that still hand makes Delft Blue according to a centuries-old tradition. Discover the history, craftsmanship and innovation of this royal company during a visit. The Royal Delft Experience takes you on an inspirational journey through the world of the centuries-old earthenware. Paintbrushes carefully touch the white earthenware, whilst elsewhere clay is poured into handmade moulds. It is here, at Royal Delft, that craftsmen have been creating the iconic Delft Blue for almost 400 years. Admire the collection of antique and modern pieces of Delft Blue earthenware and experience the authentic production process in the factory. In the showroom, the complete collection of hand-painted classic and modern Delftware and souvenirs are displayed and can be purchased. In 2018 Royal Delft celebrated its 365th anniversary. Highlights of the year were the exhibition “Nouveau Blue: vision to realisation” until 30 September and the painting of a Delft Blue tile painting by 365 people during the year. To complete the experience you can join one of the painting workshops and discover the skill needed to be a Royal Delft craftsman (upon reservation). Finally, you can soak up the atmosphere in Brasserie1653 that overlooks the beautiful courtyard garden, whilst having a cup of coffee, High tea, or lunch. There are audio and guided tours available in 8 languages. Royal Delft is easily accessible from Amsterdam, the Hague, and Rotterdam.

What people are saying about South Holland

Great explanatory films, fascinating museum and wonderful to watch artists painting the designs onto the white Delft ware. Peaceful gardens where we enjoyed generous helpings of panini and 'poffertjes'.

Went with my 9 and 13 year old boys. Both said it was interesting and that they learned something. Was a wonderful opportunity to see a lot of Delftware and learn about the history of it.

Good set up of the tour. Informative videos at the beginning. Nice to see someone at the paintwork and to be able to look around the factory. Very successful excursion.

Fabulous place. Love the history, the workshop, watching the craftsman, and the finished products are outstanding. Bravo!!

Very nice place, a beautiful scenography that ends with a visit to the factory.
