Gave us tips on what to do for the rest of the trip! 5/5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ / The 5 glaziers from Sweden ”Bomhus glas”

This museum is one of the best we have ever visited. We booked a private tour, which we recommend for anyone wanting the best experience. The museum is very large and so many things to see and learn about. Our guide Elvira was very good, knowledgeable and informative and made the experience even better. She could answer all of our questions and gave us very good insight of the history.

A stop-gap dose of history, led by an excellent guide. A suitably long tour and relevant in a concise and informative format. A lot to see. I recommend visiting.

Great tour with a great guide 100% recommend to anyone going to Gdańsk!

Very professional staff. Easy with included transfer.
