  • Toller market, beautiful Center and romantic old town. Duty bike riders here. When we were here, there was a flea market along the canals. Delft liked us and we come back.

  • Decent. Take out the audio guides. But don't expect to see paintings. All reprints
  • Good audio guides but there were too much reproductions
  • Very informative about Vermeer's life; great series about the paintings themselves and also how Vermeer is believed to have painted. No actual Vermeer paintings, though.
  • A complete waste of time and money. There is nothing here that you could not see in a book on Vermeer. Don't be expecting to see any genuine art by the man. OK, the paintings are too rare, but there is nothing here. No sketches, no letters. Right from the start they say that not a lot was known about Vermeer. Well, then perhaps you will struggle to create a Vermeer Center!! Seriously. Save your money. Avoid.
  • Very disappointing visit! In very high entry prices, not a single original was shown by Vermeer. This museum is all about the money of the visitors.
