Nice museum. The history of Delft is presented in a interesting and educational way. Lots of information on William of Orange and early monarchs. Sections on important artist and scientists of Delft are well presented. Child and teen friendly.

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.

You can really feel the atmosphere of the old days in this museum. And then to see the place where Willem van Oranje was shot.... shivers down your spine when you see the bulletholes in the wall! Very impressive place to go!
