4.6/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web
Celebrating the bravery of the Polish solidarity movement, European Solidarity Centre 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.

  • This was an excellent museum . Use the headphones , you will get more from the trip . A fascinating story that genuinely changed the face of Europe . I would highly recommend this museum . 
  • This is the one visitor attraction to see in Gdansk. It brings the history of the end of comunism to light in a really easy way for all ages. Only 17 zlotty for a good morning or afternoon visit. 
  • A memorial museum at the entrance of the Gdansk shipyards. The course is very well designed and clearly explains the origins of the protest movement with a lot of documents of the time. Large rooms, a very good audio guide (free of charge, so to take absolutely). Inside the Museum is very nice with large spans of green plants and the large windows which let in the light. And a small café (coffee Corten), which offers excellent pastries and quality coffee.
