A good place to visit to learn about the History of the Netherlands. There were some interesting timeline films. Portraits and paintings of Dutch royalty and prominent citizens of Delft.

Very nicely restaured building, interesting museum. The bullet holes were my goal to see, but I got so much more out of my visit.

We enjoyed our visit to this museum. We learnt quite a bit about Dutch royal history and the history of Delft itself. Well worth the visit.

This museum gives what you would expect: information about the royal family, and about the most important industry of Delft, pottery. the most interesting part is the explanation of the history of pottery, and the links with the pottery in China.

Note: if you're visiting museums in NL, get a Museumkarte, giving you access to 40 museums, great value. Like all museums in NL, the Prisenhof is beautifully presented and well worth a visit.
