  • Great museum, a bit out of town but worth the walk, great way to spend a few hours with plenty to see, Its a must see.  more »
  • Definitely worth the walk slightly off the beaten track for this one. An impressive building with some interesting things to see and learn about.  more »
  • 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 ...  more »

  • Yes, the big draw of this museum is the triptych painting of 'the last judgement' and it is very impressive. Probably worth it to justify going there to see that alone. Which is just as well given some of the other exhibits. There are some interesting other 16th century Dutch paintings (though what are they doing there?), and some of the silver mugs are fascinating, but it's very much a single big piece event. Mildly off the beaten track for the tourist trail, but still easy to reach (provided you follow a map). Read the blurb provided about the symbolism in the painting - it's genuinely quite fascinating. Oh, and maybe pop your head round the next room with the other contemporary pictures of the last judgement... since they really help you realise why Memling's one is quite so good!
  • A good art collection, the most interesting piece is surely Memling's triptych, amazing!
  • It was ashame that there was no english explanation at the temporary exhabition. But the standard is very well explaned.
  • 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.
