European Solidarity Centre, Gdansk

4.6
#1 of 14 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.

  • You just need to see you yourself experience, to feel for a moment the spirit of that terrible time. Place completely beautiful and valuable. I'm proud that there are such places in Poland. A big thank you to the creators. A great exhibition. The Interior impresses. Congratulations.

  • An essential visit to not forget the misdeeds of the hateful Communist dictatorship. Allow 2 to 3 hours to visit both the documentary resource is rich.
