Went in primarily to see the exhibition, the History of the Great Steppe, but was impressed by the Town Hall itself. The exhibition was very interesting but unfortunately all in Polish so we rather missed out to some extent. Very worthwhile visit and extremely interesting.

It is a very interesting building and exhibition inside where the history of Gdansk is told and at the top is about WW2 time there. Finally, it does not hurt to go to the tower and enjoy the view.

Stunning architecture, excellent interior design and great views - make sure to include Main Town Hall on your list of places to visit while in Gdansk.

Interesting exhibits, but the architecture is equally if not more impressive. Worth an hour or so: could be easy to miss in a street with so many impressive buildings.

I didn't know until my last day that you could actually enter. It is an absolutely beautiful building inside. The view at the top of the tower is incredible. Well worth the visit - and the climb!
