  • Very nice!!! Well done ... it's true there are original works but it explains very well the life and work of this brilliant artist. People think it's some kind of pinacoteca but is a cognitive Museum about the artist. I recommend it so of course if you are interested in discovering and learning about the life of a teacher like that! The ticket price is also given an audio guide very interesting.

  • In the Vermeer Centre Delft you will get a good impression on the life and work of the painter Vermeer. Especially the way in which Vermeer dealt with the light is very impressive. The only downside is no real paintings or good copies, but only posters.

  • Had a lovely visit. The staff were very friendly and helped explain how to best experience the museum. It was great to learn a bit more about Vermeer!
  • The museum explains clearly the paintings meaning and how Vermeer used the light and the artist's method on how he reflected the light, colors and in his paintings. Provides the principles to understand the paintings.
  • Definitely worth a visit, especially to see all of Vermeer's works in a single collection. Nice audio tour.
