Huge show of differents articles I've not seen in other museums. I miss the english explanations and dates! The guardians ( one for each exhibition) didn't know a word of english either to answer our questions. Anyway it is worth a visit! Climbing the tower was awesome also! Don't miss it !

Really interesting museum. However, more guidance texts in English would make it even more interesting for visitors now capable of understanding Polish.

the museum is not very interesting but if you climb up the winding staircase of the tower, you will be rewarded with an excellent view of the harbor and old town

Situated next to neptune's fountain and along the short cobbled street from st Mary church. It dominates the Main Street and is very imposing. It was completely destroyed in world war 2 but gas been lovingly restored and now shows the glories of medieval times exhibiting 5 centuries of exhibits

We visited the European Night of the Museums when all participating museums are free and are open in the evening from 7pm to 1am.The turnout was impressive, mainly young people, keen to learn about their history. There are no audio-guides but the majority of exhibits have well written and informative English as well as Polish captions. The layout is chronological... More

I was kind of dragged to this museum. I was more interested in the museums on Dlugi Targ, and was only gonna visit this one, after I saw everything I wanted to, and had time to kill, but we happened to walk by it, so I thought I'd check it out, and I'm glad I did. First off, I will... More

So...it is worth visiting the museum. Liked the fact that it put in context those numerous small houses with many floors Also provides information about the major reconstruction Poland had to go through. Worth 1,5 hours. Well located near every other things to check.
