  • It is one of the most important historical museums in the Netherlands. Shows all the genealogy of the Royal family, but also all of the most important events that marked local history. We can say that on this site, it began the revolution against the Spaniards, who would then give to the independence of the current Netherlands. It is worth visiting it, it is one of the arteries of the country.

  • I loved it, simply not reached me the time to enjoy all that the Museum has to offer. I actually learned a lot about the history of Delft: William of Orange and many other interesting details. You will not forgive you not to visit this Museum!

  • One of the best and most iconic museums in the Netherlands. The exhibitions are just amazing, interactive and hands on. The location is great as well. Good as part of a city walk.
  • You can find here a wall with the bullet hole made by the bullet that killed a king of the netherlands. It used to be a monastery at the very beginning
  • If you wanna who,where and When started The Netherlands, you should visit this place to get to know more about Willem van Oranje (Zwijger). If you visit Delft, you should consider visiting this Museum as one of your priorities on your to-visit list!
  • A must see and basic dutch history of how our country was founded
  • This museum is dedicated to "William of Orange" (although there are some other exhibits as well). There is a section of numbered routes to help you with navigation inside the museum. It is quite small, but a must-see nevertheless.
