The National Museum in Gdańsk (Polish: Muzeum Narodowe w Gdańsku), established in 1972 (although the history goes back the third quarter of 19th century), is one of the main branches of Poland's National Museum system.

Its main location is in the old Franciscan monastery, which has been used to house exhibits since the end of the 19th century.

Currently the museum has seven departments:
