  • We have happened one Saturday morning while I was visiting for a day in Gdansk and at the price of 1 zloty (for EU students under 26 years old) we had a great morning. Surprisingly there was more staff than visitors which makes it look a bit desolate. The collections of porcelain and silverware are small but really well preserved. The picture gallery of the second floor is rich in paintings by Flemish masters and some local painters.

  • The National Museum of Gdańsk houses a surprising art collection. The most important is a triptych by Hans Memling. Furthermore, many art of old Dutch masters of the golden age: still lifes, landscapes and church interiors. There is also a section with pottery, including many Delft blue. The museum is located close to the city centre and is well worth a visit. Trek there at least two hours before.

  • Great museum with ceramic, silver and painting collections. Top of the lot for me was "The Last Judgement" painting by Hans Memling which is on display here. However, many of the other items on display are still a fantastic to see!!
  • If you need one reason to visit - it's the famous Last Judgement by Hans Memling.
  • Very interesting facility. Quite often one can encounter interesting temporary exhibitions.
  • Lovely place gentle people speak polish and Deutsch
  • Nice building and very nice paintings.
