  • The Museum is nice and definitely makes it possible to know the life and vermeer's painting technique, but since there's not even a picture of the artist but only ... reproductions, the cost of 9 euros is in my opinion.

  • Initially I was undecided whether or not to visit this museum because I had read that there was no original work, but now that I've been there I can say it was a great choice: situated in the historic centre of Delft the Museum helps trace not only all the works of the great painter but also his life and his city. To see!

  • Very interesting exhibit about the artist and his work, as well as Delft during his time. Includes audio guide. Sadly, there are no originals, just replicas of his work. But definitely worth the visit!
  • Gorgeous place. Well worth a visit.
  • Interesting and formative exhibit, worth seeing to understand Vermeer's creative process and technique. But if you are in it for the original masterpieces, then you better skip this one.
  • Take a look at the recreation of his workshop. You will be surprised.
  • The Vermeer information Centre is a good way to explore Vermeer's work. You start downstairs with a video. To the right you'll find copies of his most famous paintings. With your audioguide you'll get an explantion why and how he painted these paintings. Upstairs you'll find his workshop and the explanation of the Master of Light. It's a great way to learn more about Vermeer. A must-see stop in Delft!

Where to stay in Delft

The most popular accommodations in Delft cluster in the historical town center, a compact area heavily booked on the weekends and during the summer. Make your arrangements well ahead if you wish to stay there, or explore the guesthouses near the main train station if you prefer to travel without prior reservations. The city's long- and short-term rental houses, which often cost slightly more than centrally located hotel rooms, offer an affordable alternative for families in need of more space and privacy.
