Sooooooooo cool

This place is the real deal. All the rich merchant stuff from the 1500s. Great museum, free on Monday mornings. A must see!

We had no idea what to expect when we entered the rather unspectacular entrance, but the court (one big room) was very impressive and you could feel history all over the place. 30 minutes are sufficient.

The Dwor Artusa took my breath away. The main hall is outstanding, with walls, ceilings floor all decorated with intricate art works. Even more amazing is that most of the building was destroyed during WWII. The painstaking, historically accurate restoration is mind-boggling. There's plenty of information in Polish and English (some only in Polish and German) to explain everything as... More

Sumptuous and amazing reconstruction work. Contrary to previous reviewers, we found the staff friendly and we spent around an hour there. The upstairs was closed when we were there (January). The wealth these burgers had is astounding, they must have felt on top of the world. There was plenty of information in English, on laminated cards and on notices on... More

The main hall of the Guild Hall is very interesting with the lockers where each burger kept his ledgers and robes etc. There is a wonderful, huge tiled stove in the one corner. Each tile is different. There are ships hanging from the ceiling representing the different types of ships that used to use the port. There are also some... More

Check out the humourous tile in the stove! Also study the inlaid veneer work either side of the door leading to the second room....look for the tiny faces! Even some of the staff hadn't seen them before! Would recomend visiting before it gets dark as there is scant lighting.

Subordinated to the needs of Gdansk merchants and craftsmen. Exceptional interiors, including wall paintings. Wedding cake tiled stove. Woodwork, sculptures. Practically hard to find counterparts in other cities. You can sometimes get to know the problems the preservation of wood. You have to explore necessarily.

Amazing main hall - stuffed with extraordinary pieces of art, model of ships hanging from the ceiling and breathtaking 10m high tiled stove. It’s worth to mention that Artus Court in Gdańsk dates back to XIV century! In the entrance there are photos or portraits of famous visitors - like kings and emperors, stars etc. Besides of the main hall... More

A fine building with a magnificent tiled furnace - plus some other bits of art. There is an upstairs - but it is closed when school groups are visiting (even though entry fee stays at 10 ZLT) The furnace is the largest in the world - and the tiles of Europe's great 16-18th Cent. rulers are fantastic, Worth seeing

Great place to visit but, having read other reviews, we may have missed a trick as we did not realise there was an upstairs to visit. Perhaps it was closed that day. Still the main hall is incredible and it took a long time to work out what the paintings represented. There must have been something in English and some... More
