Start your tour by listening the lovely tune from the bell tower. The town hall is one of the landmarks of the city. It is almost impossible to loose sight of the beautiful bell tower in the middle of the main pedestrian street. Inside there is plenty to see. Starting from the ceremonial rooms decorated with paintings and wood carvings... More

The old Town Hall is worth a visit, even if you are not a big fan of museums. Information is in german and English, as well as in polish.

The museum provides a great insight to the history of Gdansk. There is lots of information provided detailing the various rooms. There is no charge to enter the museum on a Tuesday, as is the case for most museums in Gdansk.

Have to agree with Gary D, the staff here ruin what could be a good museum. My wife and I got followed around into every room with the staff bearly giving us space to breathe let alone read and enjoy the exhibits.

The Council Rooms downstairs are nice with a reasonably interesting history, and probably worth seeing. The museum upstairs is a bit of a mixture. If you're interested in the city before the war, there are some exhibits and information that really help to evoke Danzig -- the German city you can never visit. The tower is only open in summer.

Nice small town hall where you can find parts of the history of Gdansk and Poland. Well maintained and with explanaition in English, its admitted to take pics without flash. Its indeed a kind of mini museum. Worth a visit.

This has free entry on Mondays. If you pay 5 zl.s you can also climb up the tower, from where there is an excellent view. It's a long climb but the steps are not difficult. And there is plenty to see - a mini-museum, well laid out with clear explanatory material.

Amazing indoors and breathtaking view from the top of the tower. A must see in Gdansk. If you plan to see more attractions in Gdańsk I recommend to use Tourist Card.

But what you really should go here for ís the awesome view from the tower. Climbing up there is not too bad at all and the view is 360 degrees, heaps better than at the Mariacka church tower.
