European Solidarity Centre, Gdansk

4.7
#1 of 22 in Museums in Gdansk
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.

  • I do not recommend. Pisowska propaganda as Gomułka. Employees of the race as he trying to comment on it. You have to rent only a reasonable guide. Sad.

  • Well that building and exposure of interest. Stay in the parking lot well spoil You mood. Tight, tight, tight by wiazdach and trip. Readers at szlabanach is a joke. Mount them again. Aisle spaces. You cannot see the denominations of coins in your wallet. I just put the coins in 10 minutes. Nonstop fall out back. Prices per hour from space. The exhibition about the fall of the commune and in the parking lot. Komuna.

  • Great muesem and excellent tour. Headset will be able to tell what rooms you're entering and adjust to the time of what video is on the screen. A lot of history to learn about so be prepared to spend a good bit of time here, it's definitely worth it. Entry cost including the headset was roughly £4 which is fantastic considering how interactive and long the tour is.
  • Amazing experience. Highly recommend to visit when in Gdansk. As it all about freedom, Gdansk of 90s and opens eyes on how people fought for their independence.
  • Loved it. Very well put together and modern museum. Make sure to do the audio guided tour and don't miss the observation deck on the top floor
  • This is a very thorough and descriptive museum that helps both foreign and native individuals to understand how Poland won it's independence. It is moving, passionate, insightful and mentally stimulating. It is a museum that cannot be bypassed when coming to visit Gdansk. Take 2 hours and enjoy an eye opening experience through Poland's very important history.
  • Beholds magnificent polish history! A must visit and the curation of each art piece will amaze you. Don’t forget to ask for audio guide and thank me later! :)
