  • This battle ship is a museum now. For kids it can be fun to go on board but for me pictures are enough.  more »
  • Lovely to see in flesh, good price, although it needs more descriptions and open up some more areas of the ship. Otherwise you are done within 30 minutes. Still worth it.
  • I was looking forward to the visit, but was disappointed. I was expecting to see ORP Blyskawica how it looked inside and how it worked. Instead the interior has been remade to look like a marine museum with model ships inside. The only part accessible and interesting was the machine room. Unfortunetly alot children were afraid there for some reason. The bridge was also unavailable.
  • Historically important. Good , educational museum to visit.
  • It's a huge ship and it's the largest warrior ship in poland.
  • One of the nice spot in Gdansk.. Love it
