The museum’s pride is the “Last Judgement” triptych by Hans Memling (1433–1494), one of the major art pieces of 15th century European art. Moreover, the branch also presents the collections of Gdansk and Netherlander paintings, gold jewellery, pottery, as well as Gdansk and north European furniture dating back to the 16th and 18th century. All these items are available to see during permanent exhibitions, as well as numerous temporary exhibitions under various themes.

Information for people with disabilities


If you are visually impaired
, make sure to visit the museum only with an
accompanying person. The premises (including the entrance) are difficult to navigate
independently (this also applies to the toilets). The building does not feature
direction markings, guide paths, set routes, tactile maps, Braille or large-font info
boards or exhibit descriptions. The staff is always eager to help you navigate the
building, however. The museum’s website contains audio descriptions of several of
the exhibitions.

If you are a person with hearing impairment, before you visit the Early Art
Department, be advised that the institution offers no amenities for the hearing
impaired, and does not employ a Polish Sign Language interpreter. The staff do not
use this language either. The exhibit descriptions are in Polish and are quite difficult,
and contain no sign language translations. An e-guide is not available. A tour with a
guide who knows the Polish Sign Language can be booked in advance.

If you are a person with motor disability who uses a wheelchair, contact the museum
before your visit to learn if the lifts the museum is equipped with are compatible. The
building may be difficult to enter, as there is no system to inform the staff that you
would like to do so. The interior is spacious and the passageways between exhibits
are conveniently wide, although there is no clear path. Some exhibit descriptions
may be challenging to read from a wheelchair due to their placement. The staff is
discreet, which allows you to navigate the museum independently and safely.

If you are a guardian of a person or child with intellectual disability / autism spectrum
, please contact the Early Art Department staff to determine whether you
should visit. Otherwise, you will be unaware of the building’s accessibility features
(its architectural accessibility is described quite comprehensively, but there are no
references to amenities for visitors with autism spectrum disorders, ADHD and
intellectual disabilities). The museum features no dedicated area to rest and calm
This accesability description was made as a part of the public administration service ‘Raising the customer service competences of personnel handling tourist traffic, including disabled customers’ that has been co-financed by the Ministry of Sport and Tourism based on agreement no. 2023/0044/1104/UDOT/DT/BP of 2 June 2023.
