  • Each visitor is equipped with an audioguide in his language, the visit is quite short but the information is sufficient and clear. The store is huge and offers items for all budgets

  • It's a must see place. It's what is Dutch culture all about. Small but filled with places to visit. Mini Amsterdam, full of heritage that is very Dutch.  more »

  • Interesting stop. Very friendly staff and nice short tour, about 10 mins. Prices are high, but appropriate for the time that goes into the hand painting, three days for a large plate for instance. Very pretty location on the canal. Worth a quick stop. Come during the week to see them actually working, very empty on the weekend.
  • Fun little stop on our Best of Holland tour. Interesting to see how things are made and the effort and craftmanship of the painters. Cool to learn about traditions and history.
  • A truly amazing experience full of the history spanning more than 400 years.
  • Nice to see hand made pottery at a time where virtually everything is machine made.
  • Yep. Ok. We learned some things.
