The outdoors tour is very good. Whilst I didn't have the opportunity of going inside the centre, the map-guided tour through Delft was extremely informative and gave me a fantastic insight into Vermeer's life, from his family all the way to how his widow had to settle a debt with a baker by giving him some paintings!
If you want to see Vermeer’s original works, this is NOT the place to visit. His works are at the Mauritshuis. This center has replicas of his existing works that can be viewed and, if you get the audio tour, you can get a few insights into the works. The center is child friendly and on my visit there were parents with children all enjoying the narrated your. The audio tour is available in Dutch, English, French, Spanish, German and Italian. There are mementos and books sold in the center. The exhibition takes up three floors. A very short film about him is on view and is in English and Dutch. It plays on a continuous loop. I recommend the part about his membership in the St Luke’s guild. It is interactive and you can listen to the members having a meeting.
