The Museum of Gdank is a journey through time and space. When visiting its many branches, you will see not only the historic Main Town, but also the Vistula estuary and the splendid Oliwa Landscape Park.
The Main Town Hall and Artus Court testify to the power and wealth of the Gdahsk of the past, and to the pride of its inhabitants. In the home of the Uphagen family, you can get a taste of everyday affluence. The Gdahsk Museum of Science proudly bears witness to the wisdom of the city's inhabitants, both past and present; the Wisfoujcie Fortress to military power, and the Hammer Forge at Oliwa to its bouyant economy. The Museum of the Polish Post Office and Westerplatte remind us of the city's tragic and heroic past. This guidebook will serve as a reliable companion on your journey; it contains nearly one thousand photographs with accompanying commentaries and explanations by historians and museum staff.
