  • We would like to see the exhibition of Delft Fajance. It was not as big as we had imagined but in return, the historical exhibition in the museum was incredibly exciting and very well made. Seeing the place where Villem the silent was shot was vantitous exciting especially due to the holograms and the exhibition of the current gun. Really worth a visit.

  • A very nice museum based in a very historic building, though it is actually easy to miss if you are just wandering around Delft. It possesses a number of important objects from Dutch history, though to its credit the museum often notes that some of said objects may not be genuine. Worth a visit.
  • Definitely the highlight of my weekend in Delft. I really recommend it for history geeks like me. I really appreciated to learn so much about the genealogy of the royal family.
