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

Were it not for the not-to-be-missed Hans Memling triptych The Final Judgement, most art buffs would give this art gallery a miss. There are a few minor works by the masters but you have to search them out. You will not find yourself over-awed by most of the artwork on display, as competent as it clearly is. There are remnants... More

It's an okay museum but it is rather small and does not have that many interesting art that you would expect...

One spectacular showpiece - huge Memling triptych of the Last Judgement. Some decent Flemish/Polish/German paintings, but jewellery section closed for reconstruction

A little of the beaten track but only a 10 minute walk from the Golden Gate. Worth finding but a bit dark and musty. However, there was the most fabulous triptych from the artist Hans Hemling is worth the visit even if you see nothing else. It is a stunning representation of the Last Judgement which will have you wondering... More

Small but worth visiting if you'll find some time. The size of it makes it easy to see it in 30-45 min. The collection of paintings (it has also collection of ceramics or something on the ground floor, but I didn't see it), but it has the second most valuable painting in Poland - Last Judgement by Memling, so this...
