A very well thought out museum

A thoroughly enjoyable museum with a wide variety of objects and beautiful rooms held within. A very fair price too!

Built from 1346 up to the 15th c. it stands at the junction of Dulga (Long Street) and Dulgi Trag (Long Market), part of the famous Royal Route. It now houses the Historical Museum since 2000. Above the baroque entrance doorway of 1766 there is the famous bas-relief of the lions protecting the coat of arms of the city. One... More

On the ground floor rooms must visit the Council, including the greatest red. On the floor of various exposures, including furniture and coins. You have to pay attention to the unique wooden staircase and other features. You can visit the temporary exhibitions, which can be extremely interesting. On the top floor permanent exhibition devoted to Gdansk from the period between... More

the small fee required to climb the tower is totally worth it. The interiors are also worth a visit but it is the view from the top the main reason to visit in my humble opinion.

Centrally located in the old town, the climb to the top provides an excellent view of Gdansk. The interior contains rooms with decorated ceilings and lush furnishings. Audio tours are available. Check for hours and days open.

We climbed the tower to get an excellent view of the whole city of Gdansk for 5zl. Museum there too but we didn't have time to see it this time. Climb is hard but worth it.

Our time in the town hall was well-spent. (The employee we purchased our entry from suggested we pay for only one audio tour and share it. I would advise against this. Spring for a few more zloty and get one per person OR forego the audio tour entirely -- I felt I got plenty out of the experience without using... More

Worth a look, particularly on a Tuesday morning when free (closed on Mondays). Right in the centre town so easy to get to. Only need an hour or two in here for the oppulent rooms & ceilings.

You climb about 70 or so steps up the top of the town hall, but it is more than worth it for the stunning views of the city. It's really cheap too. I'd definitely recommend.

Worth a visit normally only £2 but free on Monday an extra £1 if you want to go up the tower, worth it for the views of the old town. Some English explanations.
