Visited on a Sunday. They offer free tours of the pottery which take around 15 mins and are very interesting. The tour ends in the gift shop where you can purchase items. As you would expect it’s not cheap as all items are handmade.

I did not find much to keep my interest after the first few minutes. Since it took a bit of effort to get to Delft from Amsterdam, I was disappointed. It could be just a "guy thing" - I'm not sure. At any rate, unless...More
