You need to have a serious interest in history in order to enjoy this museum. If so I would recommend visiting it prior to a visit to the Second World War Museum. It is quite a small museum but costs very little to enter. We...More

A small but interesting look at some of the history and old artefacts from the time Danzig was a free zone. You get a real sense of how much Danzig meant in terms of its strategic importance in the area - everyone wanted to be...More

Small, information in polish only, but you get an english translated guide. Probably made by google translate. Not much of interest on show and not worth your time or money. Read wikipedia instead!

A small well laid out museum showing life and commerce in pre-war Danzig. Also documents the rise for the Nazi Party. Although labels in Polish an english quite explaining the exhibits is available.

Usually I love something slightly quirky, but this sadly wasn't one of them. Tourist information had suggested, as I like social history. Think I understand why it isn't in lonely planet or even tourist info maps! Partly they have exhibits to show props as to...More

Well, I visited this place but there was nothing particularly of note here. If you don't read Polish then avoid this place. Also it's very small and only takes two minutes.
