The museum has a nice exhibition of reproductions by the artist Vermeer. The tour starts in the basement with a short film about the history of Delft at the time of his life. On the 1st floor you can learn about the colors and the meaning of light in his paintings. The best for me was the top floor. This explains in short notes what Vermeer drew on the subject of love in the pictures. Be it the wine or the love angel or with hidden looks...very interesting.

I expected to see a house with antique furniture with paintings. But, this museum is very interesting, it is didactic and helped me to understand the symbols in the paintings of the masters of the golden age. An evocation of life in this period would complete well. Nice museum.

Great Display, sadly no original paintings present. Lots of wonderful background information
