    Definitely include this museum in your to-do-list in Gdansk. It is located in the former (historical) city-hall, the 'red room' itself is the real highlight of this strong museum. This room alone is already worth the price for the museum. The tour starts in the main councilroom, followed by the 'Red Room' with its splendid ceiling. The best way to absorb this ceiling is actually to lay down on the ground. Other parts of the museum exposes beautiful furniture from the past (especially some wooden clossets are impressive), temporarily exhibition and finally an part about WO II. It takes max. one hour to visit this museum.
