You can see here The Last Judgement by Hans Memling. It is sufficient reason to visit.
The rest of collection is not such impressive, but if you are in Gdańsk you cannot miss it.

The temporary exposition 'Sin in the European Art' was very interesting, and not overloaded, well-organized. But the staff... the ladies seemed to be offended that somebody came to 'their' museum, one of them was sighing loudly all the time I was watching the pictures, I couldn't actually concentrate on the art. 15 minutes before closing, they rudely asked me to go out, because that was the end of their working hours. I was really surprised by their impoliteness, as I was really nice to them.
Remember - if you are there for the first time - begin with the second floor, the staff won't tell you even that there is the second floor.

A taxi driver suggested I see this museum after the tour from Malbork. He took me over and saw that construction personnel were working at the entrance and it said closed. He got out and found out it was closed and relayed the info to me. He was unaware of the closing. Did appreciate his efforts. I think it is closed until 2020.

This branch of the Polish National Museum houses the famous triptych 'The Last Judgement' by the German painter Hans Memmling and, as such, should be on your to-do list while you're in Gdansk.

It's an easy walk from the centre of town. It took me about 10-15 minutes to get there from the Golden Gate and, although there is a busy carriageway obstructing the route, there is an underpass that you can use. Alternatively it would cost about 10-15 PLN in a taxi.

The building itself is an old Franciscan monastery [although part of it must still be in use as there were a number of robed monks knocking around the vicinity]. In addition to the famous triptych, there are numerous paintings showing old Gdańsk and its wealthy residents as well as the work of Dutch artists in a separate room.

Definitely worth a look. The entrance fee is 10 PLN per person and it's open from 10am-5pm every day except Monday.

The museum building is an old Franciscan monastery. It’s less than 15 minutes walk from the Golden Gate and the entrance fee is very reasonable. Even if you only visit the place to see the Last Judgment, it is worth it. There are some pewter and silver exhibitions, some Flemish and Dutch paintings as well as regional paintings and furniture. There are not so many tourists there, but there should be.

Gdansk as a city is fabulous. Very clean, very friendly people. I only spent 4 hours there but would like to return to spend a week or more. Great shopping, jewelry, food and people watching spots.
Highly recommended.

Museum is ten minutes from the old town. Lots of mediocre art but the Memling is spectacular and worth the effort. Really good Jan Steen as well.

Gdansk is a beautifully restored Polish city. However, very frustrating for us tourists. The large shopping malls and super markets are closed on Sunday (new law as of April 2019) and the museums are closed on Mondays! Consequently the remaining 5 days of the week are when everyone tries to do things so it’s crowded.

A few blocks and an underpass from the tourist strip. The Hans Memling triptych (Last Judgement) that was stolen by a Polish pirate in the 15thC is stunning and an under appreciated Gdansk highlight.

This Mseum/Gallert houses a large collection of art from pottery to porcelain, paintings and religious art. The rooms are very large and the display is well organized. Staff are not friendly. I would say they should no work here. The cost was 10Z so very cheap and worth every penny. Very interesting.
