National Museum in Gdansk (Muzeum Narodowe w Gdańsku)

Torunska 1, 80-822 Gdansk, Poland

The Gdansk (Danzig) branch of Poland’s National Museum, housed in a 15th-century Franciscan monastery which has been used since the 19th century as a museum, is most famous for a truly apocalyptic Last Judgement tryptich by the 16th-century artist Hans Memling. In 2012 the museum hosted a fascinating exhibition of 16th-century watercolour drawings of the Ottoman Empire, on loan from the Orientalist Museum of Qatar, but commissioned by Bartholomäus Schachman, a well-travelled city elder: Bartholomäus Schachman (1559–1614): The Art of Travel.
