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.

The town hall is a history musuem of the town. It gives you good information how the town comes to be. It has a few extremely nicely decorated rooms that are astonishing. It is quite a climb to the top of the tower, but it is definitely worth the extra coins & effort. The view is magnificent, 360 view of... More

This is the only place in our 6day trip which was a waste of time. Some lovely artefacts and old rooms but followed the whole wY round by the bouncer style staff on each level!

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. It got so bad that when I went back into a previous room the staff were caught out... More
