Great building in the old town and only a couple of euro to visit inside. Lovely carved staircase, painting ceilings are superb and so interesting to see the old pictures from the war. Definitely worth a visit

A really beautiful building down the main street. I didn't go inside, but the exterior is worth looking at. I got a few great pictures!

We were brought here as part of our tour. It has a very interesting history and the furniture and other items are lovely and good to see. The door is closed so just open the door. Sometimes they only let people in every half hour

One of the landmarks of Gdansk should not be missed. When I visited it, the tower offering splendid views of the surrounding areas was unfortunately closed, but the exhibitions are well worth visiting - each floor offers something completely different. Of great interest are, naturally, the historical period rooms with the red chamber as the highlight - I have not... More

The main town hall which, I can confirm, is indeed free on Tuesdays, has a suite of rooms to visit, including the fabulous red room which is a masterpiece from floor to ceiling. It won't take you long to visit, so if you're not the sort of person who enjoys a bunch of long-winded and boring museum visits, then this... More

We were advised to visit this building and we were not disappointed. It was fantastic. It took a while to walk round so allow enough time. You won't be disappointed. Enchanting! Make sure you hear the 35 bells which now peel the time. 35 bells - incredible!! Loved it!

My family would have visited regardless, just a bonus that it was free on Tuesdays. A small museum we spotted opposite the cafe while my family was relaxing in Old Town. It's a brisk walk to see everything inside, with some beautiful features of the old town hall on display. plus some nice Polish artifacts through the ages, from I... More

Opulent council chambers with fascinating history and recent history of protection from WW2 Bombing. Didn't take too long to get around and museums are free on Tuesdays

In this building, you can see a lot of interesting items, good pictures, and architectural elements. Also from the tower opens so a perfect view to the old city center and river, but in could be closed, especially in winter time.

Like many other buildings in Gdansk amazingly well restored given the damage during WW2, with interesting stories regarding the contents on display. At certain times of the year it is also possible to climb the tower (not in the winter!) (Free on a Tuesday!)
