It is the only historical building on Granary Island, which survived the last war in reasonably good condition. It houses the results of long-term excavation works conducted by the museum in the city. Its definite asset is the reconstruction of a medieval street of the Hanseatic Gdansk with merchant stalls, workshops and figures of its residents. The atmosphere of the then city is reflected by the hustle and bustle of the street, as well as the sounds of craftsmen at work, the surrounding smells and half-lit interiors. We have an attraction for the little ones as well, an archaeological sandbox full of artefacts just waiting to be discovered!

Opened in 1894, today it is known as the most beautiful, most attractive and best furnished lighthouse on the Polish coast and one of the most beautiful lighthouses in Europe. As legend has it, it is the twin sister of the most beautiful American lighthouse in Cleveland, Ohio. From the beginning, the top has had a "time ball" which allowed for precise setting of marine chronometers. That was the spot from which on 1 September 1939 the Germans took the first shots in the WWII towards the Westerplatte peninsula. It was closed and abandoned in 1984. A Pole from Canada bought it in 2001, and, following a major refurbishment, he opened it as a museum in 2004. Its Time Ball was restored in 2008. In 2010, the lighthouse was named the Well-Cared For Monument. You can view the landscapes as far as Hel, the Westerplatte and the Wisłoujście Fortress from the lighthouse and inside you can see a marvellous exhibition of the Canadian lighthouses.
