The building is easy to find. It is right next to the town hall and the Neptune fountain. Inside there is plenty to see but for me the piece most worth visiting is the very impressive floor to ceiling huge painting of mankind's sins and virtues in the main hall. I could't get a photo of it, it was so... More

This was a little gem of a visit. Stuck with a spare hour we popped in to Arthur's court to check it out. Downstairs was full of cool paintings and statues and the like, which was cool but obviously pretty standard. But when we went upstairs we were greeted by a sound chap who taught us all about the different... More

I definitely recommend visiting this place. The interior is kind of strange but interesting. I think even those who are not so into history etc. would think it's worth a visit.

Definitely worth a visit - old council chambers with friezes and pictures, with helpful information in English. Take a photocopy of your passport if you are retired - there are discounts for retired people.

The house itself is everything you expect it to be. But as a solo traveler I would like to say special thank you to the staff – I walked in educational room and the lady working there offered to take the photo I was trying to make with me and had some suggestions for fun photos with attributes like fake...

It is a branch of Gdansk History Museum.It used to be meeting place of merchants.The name was taken from the very popular medieval legend of King Arthur. The building had been completed in 1350. The interior is one big Gothic hall. A real pearl must to be seen.

This museum is right in the centre of Gdansk on Dlugi Targ. The building itself is a superb piece of architecture and houses various antiquities from the Gdansk area including an enormous stove from the 17th century.

We had two occasions to visit Dwor Artusa - a reception/buffet dinner and a sit down dinner. Both produced (a surprise to me) excellent meals that were tasty and extremely well served. In fact, service was their strongest suit with meals arriving promptly and hot, a nice combination. The historial aspects of the building were also of great interest -... More
