    We ended up staying for 4 1/2 hours. There is a tremendous amount of content through this museum. The audio guide was helpful for orientating ourselves. Although slightly skewed to Polish events, the movie footage is astounding.

    Although not mentioned by others, we enjoyed the impact of the workers statue, the wall off labor union plagues, the solidarity gate sign and the 21 requests on the outside side of the museum.

    Many stairs to walk, but worth it. You can only imagine what all these walls heard through the ages. You can see beautiful paintings, old furniture, and portraits of kings who visited Gdańsk.
    Defo not a place for small kids, who are bored and scream in the halls (the acustics are great, so you can hear them all the way :/ )

    A beautiful building on the Dlugi Targ Square in Gdansk. One of the most beautiful Gdansk tenement houses, with impressive interiors.It was a place of meetings and feasts of patricians and wealthy middle class. They were members of brotherhoods sitting on separate benches. The benches were chosen according to their origin, profession or preferences. The representative seat referred to the ethos of knighthood for which King Arthur was a model of virtues and the round table at which he sat with his companions is a symbol of equality and brotherhood. Impressive Gdansk lions placed on the facade and holding the coat of arms of the city patronized Gdansk residents. The building houses a museum, worth visiting, if only because of the beautiful collection of Gdansk furniture and the amazing tiled stove, richly decorated with images of famous Gdansk residents. Total quantity of tiles in this stove is 520 pieces. It is Europe's largest, 11-meter tiled stove. Interesting exhibits and interiors, even though the museum is small to see. The beautiful are also ship models. The location at the Dlugi Targ Square makes it impossible to overlook it. I would recommend.

    A small museum documenting the events that happened on September 1, 1939 at the beginning of World War II. Detailed explanations are provided in Polish and English about the crimes committed by the nazists here.
    It also contains a small active post office.
    If the museum is closed, you can find in the square in front some billboards summarizing the start of the war

    The Maritime Culture Center is a branch of the National Maritime Museum in Gdansk, it is a maritime education institution , ships are their passion. The permanent exhibition at the Culture Center "Boats of the Nations" contains examples of small boats from around the world. A piece of history for adults, many attractions for the youngest, both will certainly not be bored. A great place to learn about work at sea, fun for children at an interactive exhibition. Very interesting exhibition on the second floor. The resort enjoys considerable interest among residents and tourists . I recommend especially with children.

    The building houses the Ethnographic Museum. On the ground floor exhibition on fisheries. On the floors of the daily life of the inhabitants of the region. Among other things, reconstructed rural cottage. Periodic exhibitions are organized on a very different appeal. The garden contemporary folk wooden chapels. During the tourist season stalls with regional products.
