Royal Delft’s painters, moldmakers and potters have been creating the iconic Delft Blue pottery for many years. Discover the unique production process, and marvel at the collection of historic Delft Blue pottery produced by the 32 factories in Delft in the 17th and 18th centuries. The museum also displays items owned by King William III of the Netherlands, as well as pieces produced by De Porceleyne Fles from 1653 until now. More than just Delft Blue is on display. The collection includes many intricate designs in various colors, such as Delft Black, Red Crackle and New Delft with its luster glaze. Inside the building and the courtyard, you can also see structural ceramics and walls covered by cloisonné tiles.

The Royal Delft Museum is currently being renovated, in order to better present the craftsmanship, production and history of this nearly 400-year old factory. In the meantime, the museum is offering a smaller version of its usual exhibition, carefully curated by the museum team.
