Lovely museum in the building of a former Franciscan monastery. Apart from the exhibition about Flemish and Dutch artists, the paintings about Gdansk itself were very impressive. Worth the visit! Only critic: the temporary exhibition about ecclesiastical Art. The information was only provided in Polish.

This museum is out of the way, but a must because of its Memling triptych of the Last Judgement which is spectacular. Skip the rest.

It's a really good museum with many interesting facts and exhibition. The only thing we didn't like was location but it's anyway worth the visit.

It'll take you on a journey over several centuries: from Medieval times to 18th century. The wooden sculptures and altars are very fine, the classical painting section is also interesting and two rooms with furniture are representative of late Renaissance and Rococo style. Memling's Last...More

The main reason for visiting museum is the painting of the last judgement by the Flemisch painter Memling. But there is also a nice collection of Dutch art.

This world famous altar piece is to be viewed in the National Gallery of Gdansk, which is a bit out of town in a quiet street. It is in the class of all those art works you consider worthy of a pilgrimage to go and...More

Definitely worth the walk slightly off the beaten track for this one. An impressive building with some interesting things to see and learn about.

This museum is a little out of the centre of Gdansk, but worth the walk. I found getting there a little tricky - you have to cross a busy motorway, best done using the underpasses at the Okopowa tram stop. It houses a pleasant collection...More

Plenty of art work, few artefacts, so more of an art gallery than museum. Very cheap entry so definitely worth a visit. Some very interesting artworks. Staff did follow us around to supervise the paintings but didn't engage with us, welcome us or offer information.

10 zlotys, equivalent to 2.50 euro. It is worth it just to see The Last Judgement by Memling. There are other paintings also, of Dutch art, china, furniture and ceramics.
