Café Blauw, our cosy museum café, is the perfect place for it. The café is open during museum opening times. You are also very welcome without a ticket to the museum.

Looking for a special gift?

At our museum shop, you will find many items especially selected to reflect our collection, unavailable at other shops.

For those with a sweet tooth, there is Winkeltje Kouwenhoven – the nicest and oldest sweet shop in the city – and part of the Museum Prinsenhof Delft. You will find traditional Dutch sweets here: ‘peppermint pillows’, cinnamon sticks, ‘butter waffles’ and magic gobstoppers – and nostalgic toys, classic picture postcards and old-fashioned oil lamps, too. Of course, you are also welcome to visit the shop simply to soak up the atmosphere of earlier days. The shop is open from 12.00 to 16.00 on days when the museum is open.

On a guided tour, you will learn about the museum’s extraordinary and surprising stories.
