Must see · History Museum · Specialty Museum
Celebrating the bravery of the Polish solidarity movement, Europejskie Centrum SolidarnoSci includes exhibition halls, a theater, and impressive architecture. Reopened in 2014, the attraction's building is as much a reason to visit as the engaging exhibits. Designed to resemble a ship's hull, the structure pays tribute to its location in the shipyards. Inside the "ship's hull," historical exhibits tell the story of Poland's fight against Russia through videos, audio recordings, and documents accompanied by visuals and interactive displays. Visit the attraction's website for a calendar of upcoming events and to purchase tickets in advance.

  • Interesting and interactive exhibition. Free access access to a rooftop with an amazing view on the Gdańsk shipyard and old town.

  • Superb museum/centre that tells the story of the movement Solidarity. As my family was involved with the movement it has a very special place in my heart. My wife is English and she was in tears having seen and heard the exhibits. I wholly recommend this place as a must see when in Gdansk.
