  • A very nice showcase of the life of the founding fathers of the Netherlands! Spread over several rooms, each room tells its own part of the story. The life of Willem and his family is well represented up to the point of his death, and when reading through the different rooms it feels a bit like a TV show: set up/intro, love story/conflict and eventually death. Recommended for anyone that's in Delft!
  • Very good museum. Friendly staff, interesting and engaging exhibitions. Would recommend. Need about 1.5 hours to go through main exhibitions.
