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...

A little bit of a walk out of the town centre but well worth the effort. Everyone wanted to see the star attraction - Hans Memling's Last Judgment - but there were other impressive paintings (I am not an art connoisseur; I just like what I see) as, hopefully, the photos show.

Well Last Judgement it is. And basically you wan't be interested in much more on the exhibitons after seeing that. Just few other paintings some of them with quite big names on signature strips, such as Jan Brueghel the Younger. Mainly Flemish and German Baroque paintings or German . But Last Judgement by Hans Memling is the main draw to... More
