While this museum is best known as being the site of the infamous assignation of William the Silent, I simply can’t keep quiet about the upcoming fair.

Make sure to visit two of my favorite vendors at the fair – S. van Leeuwen Antiquairs
with his sensational collection of Dutch furniture and porcelain and Rocks and Clocks by D.E. Aardewerk. And tell them The Antiques Diva™ sent you!
While you’re at the fair, why don’t you plan to make a day of it! Take a Cultural Day in Delft – with the admission ticket for Oude Kunst en Antiekbeurs, you not only will be able to shop your heart out but you can wander the stairway where William the Silent said his final words, sticking your fingers in the bullet holes near the foot of the staircase where he fell. You can also visit the Museum of Meerten Lambert with their extensive tile collection, Delftware, Chinese and Japanese porcelain and paintings.
