  • An interesting place, a lot of exhibits well displayed. Interesting for children. "Sołdek" is an absolute must-see. Inexpensive tickets. Best option is to buy combined tickets for all branches.

  • The experience was mediocre. The museum building itself doesn't have much to show and is quite poorly equipped - the exhibition consists of like 10-20 items, majority of which are coins or replicas. There's a small recreation of boats lower deck, and that's about it. The only thing that gives it three star rating is the additional (extra cost) attraction, trip around an retired transport ship, showcasing the exterior, interior and describing major parts of it, pretty interesting to be honest.
  • Good museum with lots of models, photos and archeological stuff. Look obsolete at a first glance though. They are updating the exhibition now, so could be better later. Not a lot of interaction and the ship near the museum is not fully available, only the deck. No audio guide and all descriptions are in Polish. But everything is almost clear without them.
  • Lots of pictures and small ships (models). Really interesting for those passioned about maritime stuff. 4 star for nothing translated in english.
  • A great museum with a variety of artifacts and pantings. There was one portion of the museum with information written in English and a video with English subtitles. The staff was very nice as well.
  • Interesting museum and was almost empty when we visited the ship outside is worth a look around as well
