Definitely worth the walk slightly off the beaten track for this one. An impressive building with some interesting things to see and learn about.

This museum is a little out of the centre of Gdansk, but worth the walk. I found getting there a little tricky - you have to cross a busy motorway, best done using the underpasses at the Okopowa tram stop. It houses a pleasant collection of art. On the ground floor there is some local medieval religious art (altarpieces etc).... More

Plenty of art work, few artefacts, so more of an art gallery than museum. Very cheap entry so definitely worth a visit. Some very interesting artworks. Staff did follow us around to supervise the paintings but didn't engage with us, welcome us or offer information.

A few blocks and an underpass from the tourist strip. The Hans Memling triptych (Last Judgement) that was stolen by a Polish pirate in the 15thC is stunning and an under appreciated Gdansk highlight.

On our last day we chose to visit this museum as it was included in the City Pass. So much fine art, interesting displays of Albrecht Durer prints.

More people should know about this wonderful jewel of a museum. Security was a grand addition offering insight to the works. They clearly wanted to be in the arts. Loved the awesome Memling painting. Jaw dropping.

Very interesting. Great paintings on ceilings. Just as you think that the tour is over, you are led through to underground areas which are very dark and interesting.

This Mseum/Gallert houses a large collection of art from pottery to porcelain, paintings and religious art. The rooms are very large and the display is well organized. Staff are not friendly. I would say they should no work here. The cost was 10Z so very cheap and worth every penny. Very interesting.

The temporary exposition 'Sin in the European Art' was very interesting, and not overloaded, well-organized. But the staff... the ladies seemed to be offended that somebody came to 'their' museum, one of them was sighing loudly all the time I was watching the pictures, I couldn't actually concentrate on the art. 15 minutes before closing, they rudely asked me to...
